Support courtesy on the trails
Our bike trails (Rio Grande, etc.) need to be fitted with signage which clearly lists bike trail rules and etiquette.
The trails are a wonderful resource which can continue to be enjoyed by all, but we need to educate all participants to behave thoughtfully and to exercise common sense.
Riding two abreast (particularly around corners) is unhelpful: Bikes are not fitted with air bags, and a collision between two north-south riders traveling at 20 mph will someday do some serious damage.
A lot of this is simple common courtesy, a commodity increasingly in short supply.
Please observe the “Absolutely No Dogs Beyond This Point,” signs, and ” if you must walk your pet along a designated bike trail ” please leash him and keep him close to your side.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
If you don't follow the rules, your comment may be deleted.
Aspen’s dirty downtown alleys are enough of a blight that the city government is taking the initiative to clean them up this week.
