Pedal Chic is temporarily closed after the shop was significantly damaged by water. Their online store is still open.

That sounds terrible. I guess this could put a slight damper on the "incredible things"?

I would strain far away from saying we're anti-cycling; but I would say we have an issue (however small).

There seems to be a fair amount of cycling on the wrong roads; which of course causes problems. I've seen many people cycling on roads which, in my opinion, are not safe for cyclists. There is no shoulder, there is no sidewalk, there are many blind curves and there is mild to heavy traffic...sound like a smart place to bike?

We have trails! We have designated bike routes. We have great parks with full sidewalks that are bicycle friendly. Why do these people continue to choose to ride roads like Chick Springs Rd and Alamont Rd (the road up Paris Mt.).


We, in general, are VERY cycle friendly. If there is any anti-cycling sentiment rumors circulating it must be from those people that are doing it wrong.
