This just came through from LaGrange's email system:
Just want you to be in the communication loop about this road hazard. Our request that this road hazard be addressed a.s.a.p. is being submitted directly to CalTrans. If you haven't been on PCH lately it wouldn't hurt to read the report we are submitting. Just know that you've got to be especially "heads up" in the shoulder zone that runs between Coastline and Topanga. Please feel share this with our fellow riders in other clubs and organizations. The more who know -- the safer we all are.
Have fun and ride safely.
PCH Road Condition Report
Existing PCH Cycling Hazard
Where: North (land side) of PCH between Coastline and Topanga
Date: Submitted January 24, 2008 - CalTrans District 7
Description: There are a series of about a dozen, 12-inch diameter (circular) holes located on the shoulder. Specifically, they appear as holes that were once used for poles or markers at a road or hillside construction project. They are right in the shoulder zone where cyclists must ride. Additional danger is that some of these holes are filled with soft sand causing some of them to be naturally camouflaged creating a potential wheel snag resulting in the downing of riders. Please take note that these holes run the distance starting at Coastline and end south of Topanga.
It would be deeply appreciated if they can be cut and patched with road material as soon as possible.
