The recent Tour of Park City bicycle race (Aug. 2) was colorful and, no doubt, exciting for the participants. It was also very dangerous. Hundreds of cyclists were traveling in both directions on a narrow, twisting mountain road between Kamas and Evanston, Wyo. Some were only a few inches away from vehicles going in both directions. A single, small rock could swerve a cyclist into a collision.
In addition, Highway 150 through the Uinta Mountains has steep hills. It's a wonder there was only one injured cyclist on 150.
Perhaps UDOT and whoever else puts the seal of approval on this race could find a safer place.
