From someone who lives in the neighborhood:  It seems as though the crowds have gotten better about not leaving trash and respecting private property, at least on my street.  I'm pleased to report no vandalism at my place this year, and I found only one cigarette butt on the public sidewalk in front of my house.
It's funny because I kept getting water and setting my bottle down in the shade by the sidewalk.  Then, 20 minutes later, I'd look for my water bottle and it would be gone.  At first, I thought some thirsty person took it; then I realized that people were continuously cleaning up the sidewalks along the course.  I still have no idea if it was an official volunteer, or just a kind neighbor.  I lost about 4 bottles of water during the day!  But I can't complain, because there was absolutely no cleanup for me to do at the end of the day on Galveston.  Everything was spotless!

Couldn't you just move away from them?

13th & Jackson was still a pretty good mess when we finally got up there to get the water monsters around 7pm.  Malcolm is beyond anal about making sure Riverview is cleaner than it was before the race.

We came across smokers, as well.  Yes, we can stay away from them.  The cyclists, however, can't.  Cigarette smoke is probably very low on the list of things you want come across while riding up Cry Baby Hill.

There is an ancient Celtic axiom that says 'Good people drink good beer.' Which is true, then as now. Just look around you in any public barroom and you will quickly see: bad people drink bad beer. Think about it. - Hunter S. Thompson

Riverview is cleaner before the race.  It's messier on Sunday evening after the race.  That's a factual, general observation from someone who lives in the neighborhood.

Many of the visitors are disrespectful.
