[Cyclelicious] New comment on Colorado legislatures attack cycling on Bike To Wo....

Fritz has left a new comment on your post "Colorado legislatures attack cycling on Bike To Wo...":

Murph: you gotta love what Broomfield did to escape that island of Boulder County. :-) And I seem to recall some people in Longmont wanted to merge into Weld County not long ago.

I don't know if you've been up to Larimer County lately, but they have their own sprawling mess stretching from Berthoud into Fort Collins along US 287. The state even built a bypass around Berthoud to move all of that commuter traffic around the town.

Cezar: I'm disappointed in their lack of awareness on a lot of issues that impact their districts, some of which James alludes to in his comment. Penry & McNulty mock the thriftiness of bicycling, but then push their own ludicrous proposals.

James: Douglas County, Colorado is completely unsustainable and not just because of energy issues. I think many suburbs can adapt to life in a lower carbon future, but the sprawling burbs south, east and north of Denver will return to prairie and, maybe, ranchland if the current residents leave any fossil ground water behind. Much of Douglas County, for example, depends on non-renewable groundwater.
