Cyclists find horse poop in bike lanes

UPI News Service, 01/14/2013 

A Cleveland bicycle group says an increasing number of cyclists are complaining about horse droppings in the bicycle lanes of roads.

Jacob Van Sickle, executive director of Bike Cleveland, wrote an email to city leaders saying cyclists have been complaining of horse droppings in the bike lanes of the Detroit Superior Bridge and the Hope Memorial Bikeway on the Lorain-Carnegie bridge, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported Monday.

"Hearing from a number of cyclists that there are piles of horse poop in the bike lane on the Detroit Superior bridge headed west-bound," Van Sickle said. "This is a hazard for cyclists riding in the bike lane who may swerve out of the bike lane to miss the mess."

Van Sickle said he has not yet received a reply from the city. He said he does not know who is responsible for cleaning up the equine messes.

"It's nice seeing police out of their cars and on the horses. It's a great community builder," Van Sickle said. "But if they're going to do that, they need to have a plan for dealing with the messes they make." 
