Cyclists shut down Portland's roads on Sunday as well
Check this story out. While we dealt with the closure of about 75 miles of roads for Ironman on Sunday, the city of Portland shutdown a 6-mile loop to automobiles for a bicycle and pedestrian day. Apparently they tied the bike and pedestrian holiday into a series of festive events along the auto-free loop. I have read about other cities doing this to encourage motorless travel. I've even heard some talk of trying this on a couple of streets in Spokane. I wonder if there would be enough interest to try this in Coeur d'Alene.
What do you think? Does Coeur d'Alene have enough bicycle riders to make this an event worth pursuing?
