    Time to raise the drinking age and drivers age to 25 or so and keep all the little kids off the road I say.

    But once again a 'needless' tragedy.

    Upset Wow...........

    .............this is really messed up, hope time helps heal her family's pain.

    All right I can't count now how many people this is killed while cycling in or around Denver/ Front Range WTF is going on? I mean seriously, I thought Co was supposed to be the sort of state where people were utdoorsy" and encouraged sports and such activities and respected people doing them WTH This has me seriously worried now with me coming to visit and most likely having a 5 mile each way road ride to get to the trails Do I need to say my farewells to my family and friends, should I call my Mum ?????? WTF man, how can people just not give a damn

    Good plan. Then we'll have 25 yr olds on the road with no driving experience. And let's change the rules because everyone follows the rules. That way no one will drink underage and only responsible people who are not impaired will operate heavy machinery.
    Oh. Wait. We already have that, and it is tragically evident how well it works.
    You can't seriously be that crusty in only your mid-fifties. You're gonna make yourself old with that kind of attitude.

    The two riders killed in CO springs yesterday by a woman over 40 on drugs....actually she is 63....

    Makes one question your "knee-jerk" solution.

    Two riders worked at the Colorado Cyclist. Very sad indeed...

    Please, out of respect, tone down on the roadie rant...

    lower the drinking age and raise the driving age, get the binging out of their system before they get keys
