Harrison: Summit County bikers and the rules of the road

Recently, as I was crossing the street on my way to work as usual, I almost got run over by a man on his bicycle. Bikes are certainly not out of the ordinary in Breckenridge, but what got me was that the man yelled at me as if it was my fault. I would like to remind all those happy bikers out there that as stated on the Town of Breckenridge website, "Both bicyclists and motorists are expected to follow the Colorado state traffic rules and regulations within Town limits." And yes, that means stopping at stop signs, or at least slowing down to look for cars and pedestrians. So to the cranky bicyclist, you might want to re-read your driver's ed manual.
