Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

In our recent post about bike-rage attacks in advance of the Deer Creek Challenge and (possibly) the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, a Jeffco spokeswoman emphasized that cyclists have caused problems, too. One pedaller believes that's true, and illustrates his point via an incident that made him understand resentment against two-wheelers.

Chad A Bulich writes:

Very True. I am a cyclist that lives in Littleton and I drove my family up high grade to show it to them. A couple groups of cyclists were just a$$holes riding 2-3 people wide. Just from the single drive up I was frustrated with lots of the cyclists. For some reason a large number of cyclists don't understand what "ride single file" means. Very frustrating.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
