Bike elsewhere

Paso RoblesNovember 6, 2013 

It seems you just can’t please some people. Even $1.5 million doesn’t help. Some elite cyclists, with their $3,000 bicycles, paper-thin tires and fancy riding outfits, just can’t be pleased. The road is just not smooth enough for them.

We drive our vehicles every day on bad roads and have to accept it. All trucks, cars and motorcycles that use our highways have to have a vehicle registration to use the roads. Bicycles do not have to be registered. A registration fee and fines for not stopping at stop signs and red lights would help pay for the wants of the cyclists. If the road is not smooth enough for you to ride on, ride somewhere else.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
