Video: Cyclist pack and one pissed-off driver -- real Colorado wildlife
Mark Ewell isn't anti-bicycle. He's a runner but occasionally rides himself, although usually mountain bikes. But he's definitely anti-bicyclists who are "completely indifferent to vehicle traffic and the law." And on Saturday morning, when he was traveling along Marksheffel Road outside of Colorado Springs, he encountered a pack of bicyclists who seemed to think that "this is their road -- never mind it's two lanes."
