Town Bans Bikes Over Safety Concerns
Bicyclists entering town on Colorado highway 279 must get off and walk their bikes until they exit out the other side. The ban does not extend to the town's residential streets.
Reporter Helen Pidd interviewed city manager Michael Copp, who she says seemed proud of the law: "At this point the council has no intention of repealing the ban," Copp said. "They believe their actions are what's best for its citizens in Black Hawk, which are casinos and their patrons."
