Re: Complete shoulder on eastbound Rt. 7
- I agree, that one piece of road without a bike kane is dangerous, especially since it is uphill. I suggest you contact the of Broomfield.

The problem is the on the return trip there's a 50 meter section of Rt. 7 where the shoulder disappears at a sort of bridge over a ditch right before the Anthem development. I've ridden it a few times and it makes me feel very uncomfortable since the speed limit is 55 mph (I think) and I usually try taking a different route. Unfortunately there are not really any other good options that I have found. It would be nice to get a bike lane added maybe on the outside of the guard rail at that bridge, but I'm not sure where to start with that. Anyone else have this problem? Any ideas or thought?
