Letter: Bike-race teams

June 10, 2014 

Regarding bike teams on the Greenbelt - courtesy or lack of it?

On Saturday, May 24, my wife and I, on bikes, encountered a fast 8-10 bike race team in the narrow tunnel near 13th Street. Unfortunately, one of them was riding in the middle of my lane! He neither slowed, yielded or stopped, forcing both my wife and I into the wall, nearly causing a bad accident. Another encounter like this and I will become a strong advocate for rules to eliminate race teams from riding the Greenbelt.
