An Open Letter To Blackhawk
To: Mayor David D. Spellman and Aldermen Linda Armbright, Paul G. Bennett, Diane Cales, Kathleen Doles, Tom Kerr, Greg Moates
I am a Colorado resident and an avid cyclist. I love to travel around the state with my family both by car and by bicycle. One place I will not be planning to visit is Blackhawk, as your town has taken the unconscionable step of banning bicycling.
Furthermore, I have taken the time to create a website to inform the public of your new law and discourage anyone from visiting Blackhawk or spending their money there.
Please restore bicycle access to Gregory Street and all Black Hawk streets. Your ban is closing a major cross-state route to bicyclists preventing residents and tourists from biking.
