Take the "Plan Colorado Springs" survey (www.coloradosprings.gov/plancos). Here's what I said in response to the "Other" category for things you'd like to see in the city's planning efforts: "Reduce or negate emphasis on "bike friendly" traffic-impeding changes to the city's infrastructure. Stop rampant theft of traffic lanes to accommodate a few members of the local population. Without a focus on mass transit, i.e., busses and light rail, cars are an absolute necessity in COS."

I utilize Research quite a bit, never having seen a cyclist on the road. Traffic needs access to all 6 lanes especially with the new construction and growth in the eastern portion of the city.

We need to be able to drive on all lanes of Research without fear of damage to tires.

There is so much traffic on Research that it's not a good idea to take away 2 lanes

We pay taxes as motor vehicles for proper roads, not bike lanes. It was very confusing, and now the lanes are gone the pavement is so poor it needa refinished! Start doing your job!!

the street belongs to cars. bikers do not belong on the streets only cars and trucks. Let's increase the speed limit to 70 mph we need to ban all cyclists. bikes are sooo stupid. I think the city needs to ban bicycles. We need more cars because only rich people can afford cars. We should also do away with speed limits. Research needs to be at least 70 mph

Hate there are no merging lanes anymore. I haven't seen one single person use the bike lanes.

This is a big waste and the cost of taxpayers money there already are bike paths for bicyclists and they were designed specifically for pedestrian and bike use I have literally seen three bicyclists in the last 4 months on the road and it is dangerous to try to get on to research from side streets due to the fact there are no merge lanes

the bike lane is not needed, it should be low priority, it is a waste of tax $. C Springs is growing and already needs more roads constructed, not taken away.
