Boulder County, Colo. – Following today’s grand opening of the Fourmile Link Trail at Betasso Preserve, the Boulder County Transportation Department is preparing for increased bicycle traffic on Fourmile Canyon Drive and will be hosting a welcoming event this Sunday.
What: The Boulder County Transportation Department will provide fruit, snacks, cool water and share-the-road materials for cyclists
When: Sunday, July 15 starting at 7:30 a.m.
Where: Near the end of the Boulder Creek Path close to the intersection of Boulder Canyon and Fourmile Canyon drives
Additional bicycle traffic is expected on Fourmile Canyon Drive between the end of the Boulder Creek Path and the newly opened Fourmile Link Trail at Betasso preserve, especially on Sundays
Fourmile Canyon Drive does not have bikeable shoulders and both automobiles and bicyclists are expected to share the road
Bicyclists are encouraged to transition to single-file riding when cars are present and/or when riding around curves
Motorists are encouraged to pass bicyclists with care, providing three feet of separation
Motorists are encouraged slow down and wait for the next safe passing opportunity if there is oncoming traffic or a curve approaching
Courtesy is contagious! Being patient and respectful ensures that both motorists and cyclists reach their destinations safely
It is approximately 1.25 miles up Fourmile Canyon Drive from the end of the Boulder Creek Path to the start of the Fourmile Link Trail
