Colorado Town Bans Bicycles

Thanks to blogger Holly for sending me this article about a Colorado town that has banned bicyclists on most of its streets, allegedly for safety purposes.

Black Hawk is a tiny historic town with narrow streets that were designed for horses and buggies. While they haven't had any actual deaths, Black Hawk officials say they're worried about the potential for accidents, thus the bicycle ban.

The funny thing about this article is that it was published in a UK periodical and is the first I've heard about this town. You'd think someone would have made a big fuss about it in the states.
