Some very influential folks have participated in these meetings so it will be interesting to hear what they have to say. Here is a past post on this group, Mountain motorist meet again with cyclist
Boulder County, Colo. – A group of cyclists, motorists and mountain community residents working to improve safety on Boulder-area canyon roads will host a public meeting on Thursday, Oct. 29.
The meeting begins at 5 p.m. at the Altona Grange Hall at 39th Street and Nelson Road. Members of the public are invited to participate in the discussion and offer ideas about making mountain roads safer for motorists and bicyclists.
The working group, organized by Boulder County’s Transportation Department and the Sheriff’s Office, will present a draft set of recommendations that include physical improvements to roads, communication strategies that promote respect and a shared responsibility, and law enforcement strategies.

An increase in cycling along Boulder County’s scenic, narrow and winding mountain canyon roads has caused tension between cyclists, motorists and mountain community residents. Some residents and others who use the roads are frustrated by cyclists, while some cyclists feel unwelcome or unsafe on the roads. The Boulder County Mountain Canyon-Cyclist-Motorist Working Group’s charge has been to develop practical ideas to address these concerns.
The Working Group met a number of times in August and September in an effort to identify ways to enhance cooperation and improve safety on canyon roads. The group is comprised of community and cycling representatives who were identified by the local communities, county Transportation and Sheriff’s officers and by the interest groups themselves.
