As an avid jogger and cyclist, I am troubled that some bicyclists on Fiesta Island are telling joggers to get off the road, just as some motorists give bicyclists the same message on other roads. It can be as difficult or dangerous to run on a sloping shoulder or in loose sand as it is to ride on these surfaces. Although I rarely visit Fiesta Island, this article hits close to home, because Stephan Vance is a friend and Tamara Lave once interviewed my son as a witness for one of her cases. I do have similar jogger-cyclist conflicts sometimes on Coast Highway 101, with 3-abreast joggers taking up the entire bike lane.
My partial solution is for the peleton of bicyclists to assume a longer, narrower (and actually more aerodynamic) formation, to share the road with the joggers.
