Pic from my Santa Teresa Blvd. Loop in San Jose, Ca.

The picture speaks for itself.

Weak.. I wish they would jack that fine WAAAAYY up. $1000.00 isn't enough to get the interest of the enforcing agencies.

Yeah, this area is totally littered, tons of glass and crap, old TV sets, etc. However, I DO see a lot of "GU" and performance bar wrappers...

In San Francisco, that's a pretty common sight. There's also heaps of cheap furniture, TV's, VCR's and too much other trash to even mention.

Santa Theresa is on the loop for a couple of triathlons, as such there are wrappers from the triathlon itself plus Triathletes obsess with practicing their race day ritual and must ride the exact race route as their sole training ride route, and practice eating GU at precisely the same time they would in the race.

Yeah, I know. I also use gels, bars and jellies... but I still don't litter, no matter how much intensity I'm pushing.

Actually, we should all be grateful that people are doing something to install some stuff to look at distract us from all the crapola scenery around here . . . .

It seems to be a common phenonenon, though. In the past month or so, I've seen a living room's worth of stuff over the side of Grizzly Peak in the Berzerkeley hills, and in last week's Mt. Ham epic, you could redecorated your entire house with the stuff people had jettisoned over the side. And some person in a position of authority seems to have decreed the upper reaches of Pinehurst Road to be a sanctioned depository of old appliances . . . .

Sadly, all too true, although I think Pinehurst is a positive wilderness compared to the three bears. No loop is complete without 2 mattresses, an old TV, some random liquor bottles and various garbage sacks...
