Bicycles are going to use Grand County roads - get over it

To the Editor:

Here are some comments from a 60-year-old cyclist regarding Mr. Rice's letter to the editor (isn't a pedal pusher an item of clothing?)

I and my fellow bicyclists will continue to ride roads such as Berthoud Pass and especially Colorado 125. Deal with it. Slow down and give us our 3 feet.

I am not sure what harm a 25-pound bicycle could do to a 2,000 pound automobile. Both of the mentioned roads have a low speed limit, which should be enforced.

I agree with the earlier writer that all roads should have a shoulder for the safety of both bicyclist and car driver. Highway 125 has just been repaved, but no shoulder - why?

As far as John Rice's comments - laughable. I own two bicycles, but also two cars, just got a $500 dollar bill to renew my license plates. Swarms of bicycles in Parshall, must have missed that. Swarms of fisherpersons, perhaps.
