wpstoll: markphilips:Encinitas - Leucadia in the news regarding the thorny goat heads http://www.fox5sandiego.com/news/kswb-encinitas-goathead-thorns-2011,0,7340240.storyThose damned caltrops were the bane of my existence when I lived in coastal north county. It's remarkable that a plant adopted bicycle tires as a vector for spreading its seeds. Sometimes I would arrive home from an MTB ride with seven in the rear and five in the front.
Witnesses reported that driver of the SUV, a woman who was not immediately identified, was trying to transition from the No. 2 lane into the No. 1 lane when she lost control and the SUV veered to the right, up a grassy embankment and plowed through the chain-link fence and onto the bike path, said CHP Sgt. John Tyler. The SUV landed on its side.One bicyclist, a man described as being in his 30s or 40s, died at the scene, Tyler said. The other cyclist, also a man believed to be in his 30s or 40s, was transported to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. Tyler said pedestrians and other bicyclists stopped to render aid until paramedics arrived.
wpstoll:The blame the victim trolls are all over the comment page after the U-T story. Evidently they think we shouldn't be riding anywhere. Then one of the more odious ones had the audacity to accuse the cyclists who posted their feelings of dismay: "You cyclists sure like to stick together, don't ya?" Damn straight!
Saranita was driving eastbound at an estimated 65 to 80 mph when she began to change lanes. She saw a vehicle in the far-right lane, overreacted and steered the SUV hard to the right, the CHP said. The SUV traveled up a 15-foot grassy embankment, plowed through a chain-link fence and overturned on the elevated bike path.
A viewing for Venuto is scheduled for Tuesday night at the Immaculata Parish on the USD Campus. A memorial is scheduled for Wednesday at 11 a.m. Venuto's family wants his cycling friends to wear their jerseys to the service.Source: Cyclist Killed by SUV Remembered | NBC San Diego
Mark your calendar for the weekend of July 15th, when life as we know it will end for many Angelenos, as the 405 freeway — the main artery connecting the Westside to the Valley — will be closed for construction.While news reporters and city officials are treating this relative non-event with the same sort of frenzy that preceded the non-rapture last month, many cyclists are unlikely to even notice.However, KCRW chief engineer Steve Herbert offered a great suggestion.Since July’s planned CicLAvia has been cancelled anyway, why not take advantage of the closure and allow bikes to ride the 405 as sort of a mini-cicLAvia?Why not, indeed?I mean, other than the risk of things falling onto cyclists from the Sunset Blvd bridge they’re dismantling. But that could be avoided by keeping bikes away from the actual construction zone.
405 Freeway Closure Will Make July 16, 17 the 'Carmageddon' of Traffic Mayhem in Los AngelesBy Simone Wilson, Mon., Jun. 6 2011 at 10:45 AM ....Better yet, as L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky is urging, just stay home for the potential "mother of all traffic jams.""We'll be landlocked and isolated," San Fernando Valley resident Gerald Silver tells the LA Daily News today. "We're going to Ralphs early, stocking up and not leaving the house for two days."
Maybe they didn’t get the memo.As most cyclists know, the way to get away with killing a bike rider in this country is to run him down with your car, then claim you just didn’t see him.
gavilan:Wow! The picture of the remnants of the car is quite shocking!
