In one hour on Saturday, 150 cyclists cruised along the narrow road that twists through Deer Creek Canyon in Jefferson County — a popular route known for both its scenery and palpable tensions between cyclists and motorists.
The U.S. Forest Service was urged by a citizen committee Wednesday to charge a fee for cyclists riding to Maroon Lake.
The surprise, informal recommendation came from members of the obscure Colorado Recreation Resource Advisory Committee. The volunteer board advises the regional forester on issues related to fees on national-forest lands in Colorado.
Saturday, June 22nd, 2013, the Slacker Races will be running between Loveland Ski Area and the Town of Georgetown. During the race time of 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. the County will close the bike paths between Georgetown and Loveland Ski Area. This includes the paved bike path between Georgetown and Silver Plume (approx.. 2 miles) and the paved bike path between Bakerville and Loveland Ski Area (approx. 5 miles) to allow for Slacker racers only.
