Colorado Supreme Court hears bike ban case

The Colorado Supreme Court held a hearing on Nov. 8, 2012 for oral arguments related to the city of Black Hawk’s ban on bicycle riding.

Lawyers for both sides received 30 minutes to present reasons in support of their respective positions.

Attorney Paul Schwartz from Shoemaker Ghiselli + Schwartz presented on behalf of the three people ticketed for riding bicycles in Black Hawk. The case is now officially “submitted for decision,” and the court typically issues rulings between three months to a year.

  • Thanks to everyone who came out wanting to do their part to make our streets safer at last night’s Bicycle-Friendly Driver course in Lakewood! We did hear feedback that our cookies were too small—we heard you, we’ll try and do better 😂.
  • Now that’s just mean. No bike (or bicyclist!) deserves this!
  • Beautiful day for a bike commute. #bicyclecolorado
