Full story from the Denver Post

According to the Denver Post and Bike Jeffco, cyclists can out number cars between 10am and 11am.

A total of 881 cyclists and 1,412 motorists passed through the checkpoint in Philipsburg, located along South Deer Creek Canyon Road, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., according the survey. The busiest hour for cyclists was from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., when 150 cyclists passed through Philipsburg — 137 motorists went through during the same time period.

"We have an image problem," Evans said. "When you look beneath the helmets and the Lycra, there are real people and we like the canyon for the same reasons residents like the canyon."
