Some Interesting Legislation

Today's workout: Bike to work (~9 miles), swim 550 meters

Yesterday, Governor Ritter signed a law that will require motor vehicles to give cyclists at least 36 inches of room when passing. The law also allows vehicles to cross a double yellow line to do so. There was some pretty interesting debate on 9news about whether the law will do any good, with the same old arguments brought up on both sides.

My views on cyclists and motorists sharing the road will have to be saved for another day. Until then, I leave you with the State of Colorado's Bike Manual that states the rights and responsibilities of cyclists on the roads.
