San O bike path to Las Pulgas CLOSED until the 29th

Hey guys...just wanted to pass this info. We just heard this afternoon that the Marines are conducting war games until the 29th and the bike path south of San Onofre will be closed. George's commute was going to be screwed, so I called Cal Trans to figure out what to do. The bicycle coordinator is awesome and actually has been fighting to get the section of 5fwy from Basilone to Las Pulgas permanently opened to cyclists.



I just spoke to Bob James, the bicycle coordinator for Cal Trans. If anyone has any questions, please call him at 619-688-6678.

As of tomorrow morning, you may ride the normally restricted to cyclists section of the 5 freeway from Basilone Road going south to Las Pulgas and from Las Pulgas north to Basilone. The signs on this section stating that bicycles are prohibited, will be taped over and CHP has been notified that they are not to cite cyclists on this section of the 5 freeway until the war games are over on the 29th.

Hope this helps.

Brandy

Thanks for the update! The Pizza Port Parley is taking that route this Saturday.

Sounds like it's time to flirt with disaster in the middle of the night down there again, but for quite a few more miles this time.
