"Its not quite as easy as pictured north of the channel since they put the fence up north of the ramp to the sidewalk; you have to ride over grass to get to it. A better detour is to exit at the Barry tunnel and take the gravel path to Fullerton: "

"Question for the lawyers: If you record a ride where you are hit while doing nothing wrong, but the video also shows earlier activity that is technically illegal, like rolling through stop signs (even if you slow to a crawl), can that work against…"

"Heading east, I'd take California to Lawrence and then Lawrence. Its gotten much better, especially east of Western. But if you don't like Lawrence, take California to Lawrence, turn right and then make a quick left on Virginia. Take that…"

JeffB (7+ miles) replied to Yasmeen's discussion Why don't I lose weight when I ride my bike all the time?
"This has happened to me too. I'm actually gaining weight, bit by bit. I ride at least 14 miles everyday, and also work out in the gym at work 2-3 times a week, varying the area of my body that I focus on each time. I'm sure it has to do…"

"Let's try this again. I did not say anything about clearing the sand; on Friday they were laying down sand/clay/composite and side rails. This was being done, I assume, in advance of paving, unless it is crushed limestone.  "

" I took this at 4:00 p.m. today. They wwere laying down and grating sand and edging the alternative path with metal slats. So, it looks like paving will occur shortly."
