Cycling Improvements Rolled out in the Canyon

posted in: Cycling News | 0

A variety of improvements have been rolled out in the Canyons (including James Canyon, Lefthand Canyon and Lee Hill Drive) to improve cycling safety and interaction with motorists. These improvements are based on recommendations formed by a coalition of riders, drivers and canyon residents and also included Boulder Cycling Club member Jim Miers’ insights and recommendations. New signs have been posted cautioning motorist to Be Aware, Pass with Care and also one that says Single File at Curves for the cyclist.

In addition, new paved pull off rest areas have been established. Educational brochures are also being made available explaining new signage and offering tips on how to share the road. For more information about these improvements and an explanation of current cycling laws go to see  the Daily Camera article on June 15, 2010.
