As reported today (May 22) on BikinginLA | A two-wheeled guide to the streets of Los Angeles, the lead rider in a group ride, misjudged the trail path and ended up falling down the channel wall.
One of the commenters posted this Jpeg:
I have recently posted about dangerous behavior in group rides, downstream from this area.
Anyone riding the CCRT or the SGRT should never ride alone at speed or lead a group here until they have carefully reconned these trails and know when extra caution is warranted.
I live near the accident site and I go out of my way to avoid this section of the CCRT. I take Wardlow westbound to Studebaker and go south. Its not surprising that the Lightning Velo club normally uses Studebaker too, although I see smaller groups of their members entering and exiting the SGRT at College Park Dr, near Edison Park.
CCRT Construction in La Mirada
Today, while riding Hillsborough-Beach Blvd in La Mirada I saw an asphalt pour in progress for a new extension of the bike path, south of Hillsborough. I think I heard that its a $1.5M project. The work is north of the I-5.
