A bicyclist’s heartfelt plea: Give us a brake

The other day I was riding my bike on the road up Squaw Pass. On a straight stretch where I could see about a quarter mile in both directions, a big truck was barreling toward me from up ahead — a cement-mixer, which is one wide dude! When I checked my handlebar mirror, a car was fast approaching from behind, too.

It looked like these two vehicles might meet right where I was tooling along on my bike. No problem — not if the truck driver stays in his own lane, I shift over to the narrow shoulder, and the driver coming from behind has any sense.

Are Colorado students required to take too many standardized tests?

Should Jefferson County require that striped bicycle lanes be added to some roads?

Do you support the effort to recall the Jeffco school board's three conservative members?

Should people with concealed-carry permits be allowed to carry guns at public schools?
