Hello from Rancho Cucamonga, Ca!

Hi all. Obviously I'm new. My name is Stephen. I've been riding for about 5 years now, mostly road, and recently mountain.

Other things I'm involved with is the Friends of the Pacific Electric Trail, a Rails to Trail organization that raises funds for improvements to my city's segment of the Pacific Electric rail line and bike awareness in the community.

If you want to check it out, you can see the route at http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path...Trail-complete

We're also going to hold a bike event of some sort (to be determined) around mid-May or so.

Our web site is at www.pacificelectrictrail.org/

And again, Hi!

Welcome Dipster,

I checked out the bike path map. I'll have to check it out soon. What are the access points to the trail?

You might want to post a link in the Southern California regional forum. Lots of riders from that neck of the woods.

Jim

The Pacific Electric Trail

The current planned entrances are where the trail crosses each major street. For example at Etiwanda Ave, Day Creek, Haven, etc.

They only released the job to bidding, and hopefully should start construction in the spring of next year.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Hmmm,

I thought that because the name of the map was: Pacific Electric Trail (complete), it was, like, complete. When's the scheduled completion date?

Well, the scuttlebutt says the first phase will be completed by June. But you know how governments are about sticking to schedules.
