We want to update you on the bike ban in Black Hawk, CO. We have continued to monitor the situation and we are supporting our colleagues at Bicycle Colorado in the fight to overturn it.They offer the following update:
More than 100 bicyclists joined together at the state capitol last week to show their support to keep roads open to bikes in Colorado. State Senators Greg Brophy and Chris Romer spoke out about the bike ban.
“This is a basic freedom issue,” said Senator Brophy. Senator Romer spoke about the message a ban sends about Colorado, “Why do we want to have the only city in America to ban bicycling through the entire city?”
Cyclists can speak out by signing Bicycle Colorado’s online petition.
We’ll continue to share updates as they are available.
