Biking not easy on Silverthorne path

I guess it isn’t challenge enough to drop off the curb onto the highway to get around town vehicles that are constantly parked on the bike path. (Try this with a toddler in a trailer.) Now we can click out of our pedals, dismount and wait for traffic to clear for twice as long, since we’ll be clacking across the road on our cleats.

While I believe that everyone on the road should actually stop for a stop sign, I’m all for bike paths that are conducive to biking. Perhaps the Silverthorne path should be signed: “This path is actually a sidewalk. Cyclists must yield to everyone, including motorists who only check to the left when entering a state highway.”
