Letter (Aug. 24): Put the brakes on bike race in Aspen



Put the brakes on bike race in Aspen

Dear Editor:

I don't know who said that the bike race was good for Aspen, but from a retailer's standpoint it has completely ruined business the last two days. I own a store in the North of Nell and I have never had worse foot traffic and less-than-desirable clientele.

It has felt like off-season the last two days which is not boosting the economy here in town.

Every retailer I have spoken to is ready to petition this from not happening again next year. It's a waste of tax money and bike tires.

Thank you!
