With a transportation budget that's increasingly under pressure, the city of Boulder is working to be a little more creative with how it makes transit safer, easier and more enjoyable for cyclists and motorists alike.
Led by the city's Public Works Department, the "transportation innovations" project is aimed at coming up with cost-effective solutions to common safety issues.
A newly discovered DH trail on Flagstaff comes at a most sensitive time with Mountain Bikers given that this week the Boulder officials will decide the fate of the West TSA access. Here is what was mentioned on Facebook today from BMA
Just in time for council to decide on bike access in the WTSA, an illegal DH trail is discovered on the back side of Flagstaff Mountain! Keep your eyes on the local paper tomorrow or Wednesday. BMA does not condone breaking the rules. But the total ban on bikes in the WTSA does not help this situation either.
Update Interesting spin if you read the comments, here is one
Makes you wonder:
- Cyclist caught and ticketed on illegal trail March 19, 2011
- Publicly released as front page news in the Camera on March 28, 2011, two days before West TSA decision.
I suspect that any other time this story would barely merit a mention in the paper.
