626 Linden St Fort Collins, CO 80524, USALose and damaged road plates between and outside RR rails make for a very rough crossing for autos and bikes.
Over two years waiting for repairs.

714-850 W Prospect Rd Fort Collins, CO 80526, USAMany potholes along E. Prospect West of Centre Ave.
I have seen people riding their bikes along here (which is not safe under the best of conditions). Bikers and drivers are swerving into oncoming lanes to avoid the potholes. With CSU back in session, the situation could become worse. Thank you!· Reported by Maggie · Flag Flagged
775 W Lake St Fort Collins, CO 80521, USAThis is a very busy main thoroughfare for students on their way to CSU. It is particularly dangerous for those on bikes because of lingering ice blocking the bike paths in more than one spot, making the morning commute a bit like playing Frogger· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged
2243-2297 E Horsetooth Rd Fort Collins, CO 80525, USASouth side of E Horsetooth, bike lane disappears several times under packed snow and frozen melt-water between Timberline and Ziegler. Appears that drains are blocked by snow. Sheets of ice especially dangerous overnight and in early morning.· Reported by Your name · Flag Flagged
2809 Ziegler Rd Fort Collins, CO 80525, USA
The concrete and other trucks from LaFarge that enter Ziegler from William McNeil Rd deposit loose dirt in the bike lanes. Cyclists must ride in the traffic lanes to avoid the dirt.
To add to the problem, the truck drivers are rude and honk at cyclists.
Loose dirt is a common cause of bicycle accidents. The city should require this company to clean up after itself· Reported by AC · Flag Flagged

Dear City Hall:
Here and on other streets in Fort Collins, the city should use BUFFERED bike lanes.
See http://digg.com/u1EzyU for an example.
One local blogger puts it this way:
"In a nod towards bike advocates they make the roads a tiny bit wider than necessary, paint some lines, and call it a bike lane.
But I don’t see evidence that a planner/designer looked at any road and thought “How can we make this safer for bicycles?”.
In fact, I will bet money not one of those folks would let their 12 year old kid ride their bikes on the roads they built."
Other users should post here with the best locations for Buffered Lanes in Fort Collins. Let's try to change the policy by making some specific recommendations.
Bike lane planning through this site seems very effective, see www.seeclickfix.com/issues/8658.html for an example in Connecticut and http://www.seeclickfix.com/issues/8645 for an example in Austin, TX.
Thank you for looking into this!· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged
Lake & Remington St Fort Collins, COI have witnessed 3 times in the past two weeks, bicyclists not stopping at the 4 way stop. All 3 darn near got hit by a car, and all 3 were going full speed without even attempting to slow down! Someone will get hit.· Reported by Dr. Leon Green · Flag Flagged
