We got a note from the “Citizens for Open Greenbelt” (COG)–the pro bicycle group–expressing dismay and irony over the practice of Garden City Coppers writing tickets to cyclists pedaling on the greenbelt in a contested area. The coppers drive a 4 wheel gas powered ATV on their patrol to ban bikes.
The pedal powered folks come afoul of the law ((11 by the COG count) because the residents in an exclusive subdivision along the river west of Glenwood don’t want commoners cruising their back yards. The whole issue is in court since the COG filed a lawsuit against Garden City and the State of Idaho.
