Letter to the editor: Do shuttle companies explain biking etiquette?

Craig Kessler

I am writing this letter about my concerns of the rental bike shuttles to the top of Vail Pass. As an avid biker, I have a hard time comprehending the concept of people taking their kids on these rides. I don’t know if these rental companies explain any biking etiquette or rules to their renters. People stop in the middle of the path to talk, ride on both sides of the path and seem to have no interest in safety. Are the companies only concerned about making money? I have seen several accidents and, at times, young children that appear scared to death. My feeling is if you want to ride down Vail Pass, earn that ride by riding up first.
