Cyclists conquer the coast

Conquer the Coast cyclists ride the ferry to Port AransasThis was an interesting sight: hundreds of cyclists descending on Port Aransas Saturday, Sept. 24. It was the 8th Annual Conquer the Coast bike ride, a 68-mile ride that began at Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi, climbed the Harbor Bridge to Portland, on to Ingleside, then Aransas Pass and Port Aransas. From there the cyclists took the Island Road and the JFK Bridge to Flour Bluff, then along SPID and Ocean Drive back to the starting point. At least they weren’t required to pedal-in-place while on the ferry between Aransas Pass and Port Aransas. The ride benefitted the Corpus Christi Chamber Foundation at STARRS.

    Is there really a need to clog the roads, delay traffic and create a road hazard with these bike riders? All over Texas these bike riders are becoming a nuisance. I think it is time to require a riders license, license plate, Insurance and an Inspection Sticker for bikes.
