Northbound Broadway @ Pearl Street Mall Boulder Colorado

Somebody who lives in Boulder wrote regarding Broadway in the downtown area of Boulder that "There is nowhere to ride, the lanes are so close to the sidewalk that pedestrians avoid walking close to the edge of the sidewalk to avoid getting hit by truck mirrors!
"You could legally ride on the road, but no sane person would. Even the local bicyclists who generally DO ride in places where angels fear the traffic avoid this road. Of all of the places in Boulder County this is the one road where I can't remember ever seeing a bicycle."
This photo was taken from my bike. If there's not enough room to safely share the lane, you need to take the lane. Broadway is not difficult to ride on at all.
