Lakefront Path at Oak Street curve (just South of Oak Street Beach) has waves pushing up to the wall (as in, no getting around it). Be careful. I had water pushing up to the bottom of my frame for much of the curve.
At the time, it was still rideable. If you decide to go that route, be patient. My advice is to avoid and go to streets at Oak Street.
Also, just South of Fullerton, have to take the high path and was very crowded with runners and bikers and there was even standing water on the high path.
Yeah, that was worse than I've ever seen it & I've been using the LFP for decades. My bike ended up upside down on the seat! I'm grateful for my toe-clips, having a foot stuck in one kept me from being washed into the lake - 95% of my total falls as a cyclist have been on that stretch thanks to the slope & black ice and waves.
I love it when the lake does that.
It was funny but not to see that runner fall over but you have to know that area does this a lot.
The Lake almost got this guy. Check out the 1:20 mark
That video was incredibly entertaining and was the perfect ending to a hard week.
My heart goes out to those who were caught up in this mess (riders and runners alike) but hey, you take a risk in this kind of weather heading out that close to the lake...

I hope no one got seriously injured; but the video was a bit entertaining.
