Black Hawk's ban on riding bicycles

First the state of Colorado legalizes marijuana for recreational use, and now bikes! The backwards city of Black Hawk, CO has had a ban on bikes since 2010,  preventing cyclists from riding in their city. They even went as far to ticket cyclists who refused to walk their bikes through town.

The Colorado Supreme Court has overturned the city of Black Hawk’s ban on riding bicycles on February 4, 2013. The court ruled the town can pass traffic regulations, but said they must comply with state laws that require any municipal bike prohibition provide an available alternate path within 450 feet.
