Sigurd:Bringing legislation at the beaches in MB and PB in line with that of the vast majority of public beaches elsewhere in the state (and nation) was the best thing ever to happen to my neighborhood.
wpstoll:Political grandstanding. At least this is an indicator that cycling is becoming a positive symbol of political engagement. I still don't trust Peters after his involvement in the Mission Beach "Reichstag Riot" plot of Labor Day 2007 along with fellow councilman Kevin "Hermann Goering" Faulconer that ended responsible beach users' freedom to have a beer on the beach countywide.
bikingbill:The pig fight between the VC and facilities people is well illustrated here:http://www.copenhagenize.com/2010/07/vehicular-cyclists-secret-sect.htmlI asked a leading American bicycle advocate about vehicular cycling and he said, "They have had around 35 years to prove that it works. They haven't be able to. It's time to shelve the idea."http://www.velorambler.com/2012/03/23/copenhagenize-cult-leader/Do advocates for separated bicycle facilities believe in fairies, trolls and ogres? I can’t confirm they do, but there are strong indications.They can’t be convinced by facts, since their religion depends upon believing unsupported theories that they take on faith. But since the majority believes in these myths, they have to be true, right? So the author of Copenhagenize.com can lambast and ridicule vehicular cycling without fear of reprisals. The other zealots in his religion are incredulous that anyone would believe the safety and effectiveness of vehicular cycling.

sd_mike:Get the plates - report them to the police - especially the motorcycle.
wpstoll:It's almost as if we have surrendered to OPEC princes and accept our lot that we must pay weekly tribute.
deprotinator:Not sure which thread to put this, so I chose here. If the moderators want to move it somewhere more appropriate, that's fine with me. I emailed District 1's council woman (Sherri Lightner) asking about connecting Roselle St. and Genesee to provide a safe bike route between Sorrento Valley and UTC. I know, I know. There's already a designated route, but it's on the shoulders of I-5 where there's a lot of high speed merging traffic which scares me - a novice to all this two-wheeled nonsense. Some of you guys have mentioned a dirt road (utility road?) between Roselle and Eastgate Mall that can be biked. I suggested paving that road as an option to create this more bike-friendly path in my email. Here's the response from her office. Just wanted to share the info. Not sure if you guys are already aware of these plans or not, but maybe this helps.Thank you for your email to Councilmember Lightner about bike access between Sorrento Valley and Genesee. Sherri knows the danger for bicycles on this stretch of road, which is why since taking office she's been working to facilitate a bicycle connection between Sorrento Valley and Genesee. The good news is that we are moving forward with Caltrans on a project to improve the Genesee/I-5 intersection interchange. This project will also add Class I bike lanes north and south between Roselle Street and Genesee Avenue. This project is a top priority for Sherri and she has been pushing for it to be started. The current timeline project ground breaking by the end of this year (2012).In addition, as you may know, the Coastal Rail Trail project will establish a bicycle corridor between Oceanside and downtown San Diego. Councilmember Lightner has been working with City staff on the portion of the trail between Sorrento Valley Road and the existing Rose Canyon Bicycle Path. This portion of the trail is especially important because it facilitates access to jobs centers in the Golden Triangle and at UC San Diego, as well as establishing a link to the Sorrento Valley Coaster station.Based on input from the community, the next step we will take on the Coastal Rail Trail is to form a task force and have a public input process to discuss options for the Coastal Rail Trail in this area.

wpstoll:I have absolutely no problem with riding the shoulder on I-5. I believe it to be safer than most surface streets because there is no cross traffic or turns where a cyclist can be right hooked or left crossed. That fire road may well be too steep in places to pave.
For those of you using the I-5 shoulder to Genesee to get to UCSD and other points west, Caltrans is proposing to build a bike path on the west side of the freeway as part of the planned I-5 widening. This path could go all the way through to Voigt Dr.

I'm fine with riding on the shoulder of some highway as long as there is some sort of solid barrier between me and the traffic. Whatever they choose to do, I hope they can do it quickly. It would be a shame if it took them 5 yrs to build a bike path just because the project got rolled together into some larger and complicated highway-widening plan.
