Walk 'n' roll

Adam Reeves on Wednesday walks past a defaced sign at Main Avenue and Ninth Street designating the sidewalk as a "dismount zone" for bicyclists and skateboarders. The markings were posted in the last month, and Durango General Services Director Roy Peterson said they are a public-awareness effort.

"The dumbest thing about these signs is they suggest you can ride your bike other places because they don't have signs," he said.
