While the race was probably a bust from an attendance standpoint, I thought it was interesting to see how people enjoyed the freedom and fun of walking down Elkhorn Avenue. I would like to see more events where Elkhorn is closed down.

However, the Town is determined to see how much traffic they can jam down the center of town. Attempts to get people to use the shuttle have been largely a failure in making any real impact on the traffic. The one way couplets are intended to bring even more traffic to downtown on the way to the Park.

I don't think people should be so hard on Lancaster as it seemed plausible that this event would increase visits to Estes Park. The Town, however, should have tried to estimate the impact on the downside.

Um - there's the small matter of US Hwy 36 and Business US Hwy 34 traveling down Elkhorn.
