  • Right sizing goes wrong on Folsom

    From the Daily Camera

    The protected bike lanes on Folsom will remain from Pine Street north to Valmont Road, with the block between Pine and Spruce being a transition zone, and from Arapahoe Avenue south to Colorado Avenue.

    Sad day for cyclists in Boulder. Just yesterday I had the pleasure of taking part in leading part of the Boulder High Mountain Bike Team down Folsom as we traveled out to the Boulder Reservoir. Safety is our upmost concern every time we take the kids out and the protected lanes were another form of protection while on that route. We will still have the bike lane and that is good but I doubt all will feel that it will be the same.

    From the Daily Camera

    Gov. John Hickenlooper on Wednesday announced a plan to spend more than $100 million over the next four years to make Colorado "the best state for biking."

    "Biking can be such a positive force, and I think being the best biking state is going to fuel economic growth and tourism. It's going to lead us toward a cleaner environment, and it's going to help us be the healthiest state in America," Hickenlooper said in Las Vegas at Interbike, the largest annual bike trade event in North America.


    First on the Colorado Pedals Project task list is cataloging and connecting trails — natural, paved and bike lanes — statewide. The governor wants a marketing campaign — akin to the state's "Come to Life" tourism push — to help sway support for the plan at home and to help lure cycling tourists.

  • Some Boulder bike barriers removed Wednesday

    From 9News
    KUSA – Drivers annoyed by new bike lanes in parts of Boulder will see some of those removed starting Wednesday morning.

  • Delays on 'right-sized' Folsom Street spark backlash in Boulder

    Drivers rebel against lane adjustments as advocates plead for time, data

    East on Balsam, south on Folsom. For decades, that has been Terri Benjamin's go-to way to get nearly everywhere in Boulder.

    But now the easy-flowing Folsom she's always relied on more often offers bumper-to-bumper traffic.

    "If one thing happens, whether it's a back-up in the left-turn lane or a pedestrian stopping someone from turning right, like a domino, it creates this chain of events," she said. "It seems to be crowded all the time. The southbound lanes back up all the way to Valmont from Canyon."

  • Boulder's "Right Sizing" starts this week

    From the Daily Camera

    Cyclists and alternative transportation advocates are praising the project as a way to improve safety for cyclists and drivers, while some business owners on the Folsom corridor fear customers will avoid the area due to real or even perceived traffic snarls.

    Jane Hummer, an energy efficiency consultant who works downtown and lives near Folsom and Iris Avenue, said the buffers and wider bike lanes will allow her to feel safe while taking a much more direct route to work than off-street bike paths provide.
