Just like prior generations have done for us by creating a fledgeling set
of paths then a widespread biking infrastructure, we must do for the
generations to come.  Now, right now, BEFORE April 14th, is your last
possible chance for YOU to say what should be done to make Boulder County a
better biking place.  No, no, no, don’t think your opinion doesn’t count
for something.  Don’t think this is the work for others.  All comments will
be tallied and at this point the only way you can make comments is on-line
at this link to the Transportation Master Plan Question/Comment form here:

https://bouldercounty.wufoo.com/forms/xtnvsl41v2xwax/

You can use a many comment forms as you wish to express all of the various
ideas you may have.

I am going to give you a few obvious examples of comments but by no means
are you limited in your expression of what needs improving, correcting, or
adding to what has taken decades to develop.

1.  I never cross Hi-way 287 and go further East on my bike because 287 is
so wide and high speed cars are coming from both directions.  Please make
some crossings bicycle friendly.  A red light that responds quickly to
cyclist would be a minimum, an underpass would be ideal.

2.  Hwy. 36 from Boulder to Lyons with its fast moving traffic makes me
feel uncomfortable to travel.  Could an off street path from Boulder  to
Lyons be created so as to enjoy that route without cars?  (Really, this
idea is under consideration again, so let’s support it.)

3.  Do we have to have so much grit on the roads in winter even on straight
roads at no intersections?  Grit may be helpful in some steep places but
auto traffic quickly spews it to the roadside making biking dangerous. Cut
way back on the grit and the tardy sweeping up of it.

4.  Climbing lanes on all mountain roads would reduce fractious
interactions between cyclist and mountain road travelers.  Add more
climbing lanes.

5.  Intersection XYZ  is dangerous for cyclist. Name your spot, road, or
corner and say what you think needs to be done.

6. I don’t bicycle road, place, town, mountain XYZ because.

OK, that is enough.

Get to that internet comment form, and go to work!

Extras because you are my two wheeled buddies:
