Crossing the macho line

I have biked for years so I understand and strongly support the fact that bicyclists have just as much right to use the highway as automobiles.

I also understand the macho culture of biking, but there is a thin line between being macho and being stupid. Riding a bike through the traffic circle on Highway 82, when there are fantastic bike trails on all sides of the highway, crosses that line.

Bikers, keep it safe for everyone and please use the bike trails next to the traffic circle. Thanks.
