But this needs to get out to every So Cal resident quickly.
Dana Point has decided that PCH from south Dana Point (Doheny State Beach at Palisades Drive) to San Clemente should be off limits to cyclists. They are planning on building an adjacent walkway/bike path and everyone would have to use that...
This stretch of road is AWESOME for catching a nice breeze and screaming down the road at 30MPH in a paceline and I really do not want to sit on a path with surfers carrying their boards and mothers pushing strollers for a long distance. Help to spread the word to all your cycling friends and send in letters to the city council and mayor.
City of Dana Point bans bicycles on Coast Highway 101

(P.S. I am a LCI (league certified instructor) through the League of American Bicyclists , and the Chairman of the Safety Sub-Committee for the MS150 Bay to Bay bike tour (which sounds really scary coming from me), so I have to pay attention to this stuff. You can even listen to me talking about safety in a podcast here. )
