Smith: Pro Challenge an obstacle to public safety (letter)

I was coming down Ski Hill Road recently during the race and watched an ambulance take about four minutes to drive from City Market to Ski Hill.

Is the bike race more important than someone’s life? I think the sense of entitlement these cyclists enjoy is pathetic.

If there is any argument that the Flight For Life chopper could’ve gotten there, you pay the $80,000 bill instead of 10.

All cyclists do is support the lycra industry and mess up traffic. I hope you all realize that your sport is harmful, not helpful.

Go ride a bike where it’s safe.
