I know that many of you ride Deer Creek Canyon and that many of you have also used my website for a description of this ride.
Well, a local resident has been flaming on in the comments about banning cyclists in the canyon and such. Since this is the #2 Google hit for "high grade road" and the #1 for "deer creek canyon ride," I thought I need to either delete her comments or respond intelligently. I chose the latter and just researched some facts and wrote a reply. I welcome any other thoughtful replies that will demonstrate that cyclists have rights as well.
The post is here.
I do ask that you please keep it thoughtful if you choose to reply, even though I got a little snarky
I don't want this to degenerate into a general cyclists vs motorists thread, but to keep it as a place for people who actually ride the route to express themselves. If it gets out of hand, I will have to lock the comments. My website is already getting more hits than my hosting level can support whenever I post on a group reading project that I am in for the summer.
BTW, I am the user "rich" on the page.
