Trooper Tips By Trooper Gary Cutler
Colorado is a bicycling state; so you either ride a bicycle or at least see bicycles often. You’ll see the casual riders, weekend riders, bike to work riders, and there are also many weeklong and weekend biking tours throughout the state, such as Ride the Rockies, and Pedal the Plains. This means both bicycles and cars need to access the roadways at the same time and do it amicably. This is accomplished by being courteous to others and following the law.
