    I got a delightful photo of that semi-suspended SUV at Dahlia and Louisiana on my (bike) commute yesterday morning. The biggest problems there are that going northbound (as the SUV was), it’s a long downhill stretch ending at a stop sign, and that Denver doesn’t plow. I took a spill last winter in exactly the same spot even with studded tires, because the road surface was thick sheet ice.

    I’m glad Denver’s finally agreed to break out the plows when we get six inches of snow, but it’d be even better if they’d plow posted bicycle routes (that section of Dahlia is one) at lower levels of snowfall. While they’re at it, that section of Dahlia could really stand to lose its center double yellow line, or at least get a sign instructing drivers that it’s totally OK to cross it to pass people on bicycles.
