Re: “Garden City Greenbelt Debate Heads to Court

I bike 7 miles of Greenbelt to and from work everyday.
Even as a cyclist, this 'cause' seems overreaching.
Why not leave this 1.5 miles to peds alone? Cyclists have no 'right' to pass through here, too, and in fact, it would need significant improvements for all proposed users to use this section of trail safely. Who's gonna pay for that?
In my opinion, it cannot be opened to bicycles "as is," because when I walk through there (and I do often) it is clear that there is NOT enough room for bikes and peds together.
In a more general comment...cyclists on the Greenbelt need to show significantly more respect to peds anyway. Very few riders are even obeying the rules they fought for a year ago in the City of Boise. For example, I rarely get audible warnings when being passed (as a cyclist or as a ped), and I observe many cyclists blasting through congested areas without regard for others. I have even been hit by another cyclist as they tried to pass me when I was waiting for my opportunity to pass a group of peds safely.
Final opinion...Garden City should continue to oppose this opening until the trail is appropriately upgraded, if that's what they want at all, and it is clear they don't. Are you all getting the message after these 4 years?!
