A Tacky Situation: Deer Creek Canyon Road Challenges Continue

Bike Jeffco’s Facebook page received an alert from a rider early Sunday, July 3rd stating that he had encountered many thumb tacks once he turned onto Deer Creek Canyon Road. Later in the day, someone or several someones contacted 9News to report the incident. A crew was sent to the site, and the incident became a lead story for the evening newscast. You can view this 90 second newscast here:

If you were one of the riders impacted by a flat tire in this incident, please contact the Jefferson County Sheriff’s office non-emergency line at 303-277-0211 and refer to case number 16-166-83.  Save the evidence – many took photos of the tacks in their tires.

This isn’t the first time that tacks have been strewn on Deer Creek Canyon Road. It is a very disappointing and mean spirited act that is quite frankly the kind of incident that galvanizes cyclists to band together to address the behaviors. We have spent a lot of time and almost 90 percent of our limited Bike Jeffco resources working on improving the relationship between Deer Creek Canyon residents and riders. We provide a porta-potty at Phillipsburg to give cyclists a break that isn’t on someone’s property. We provide a trash can (soon to be bear proof) for cyclists to get rid of the gel packs, etc. Like many relationships, this one will continue to require work by both parties.

The Deer Creek Canyon residents ask for a few things that REALLY would not be difficult for more cyclists using the roadway to deliver:

– when you stop on the side of the road, MOVE YOURSELF AND THE BIKE to the shoulder and don’t stand on the roadway with your bike. It’s the number one complaint that DCC drivers have.
– enjoy the beauty of the canyon road, and the tranquil silence that made you want to ride it and appreciate it from the very first….KEEP your voices down. Residents really don’t want to hear your latest tales while you shout them to your riding partners.
– USE the porta…not their yards.
– DEPOSIT the used gel packs in our trash bin at Phillipsburg…not on the roadway. Some residents picking these up report getting up to 140 of them from a weekend.

Most cyclists are very compliant with these requests. We hope that you are one of them.

This will be the one of the main topics for discussion at our 9 AUGUST meeting at 6:30 PM in the Jefferson County Courts and Admin Building, Room 1564.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
