Reader: Colorado would be a better place if cyclists had to pass road tests, just like motorists
Which is why we suppose that Denver's latest installation of the incredibly popular and costume-positive Tour de Fat, which took place September 10 at City Park, sparked a couple of comments concerning cyclists and the people they love.
Here's one from Derp McGurk:
"I am of the opinion that making Colorado a better place to ride bikes involves teaching road manners to bikers and making them pass a "riding test," similar to what motorists have to pass to get their licenses.
Many bikers have this notion that, just cause they are not operating a motor vehicle, they no longer have to abide by basic traffic rules.
Riding 3-4 abreast, blowing through red lights and stop signs, buzzing pedestrians on sidewalks, and changing lanes without signaling are but a few of the transgressions of bikers committed on a daily basis."
