All info included in this postThe City of Lafayette invites interested community members to participate in a public workshop for the City’s Feasibility and Options Study of a Bicycle and Pedestrian Pathway along the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) Aqueduct right-of-way. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, December 1st from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. in the Community Hall at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center, 3491 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Lafayette.

The pathway under study would follow the EBMUD Aqueduct through Downtown Lafayette from Risa Road to Brown Avenue, south of State Route 24 and north of Mount Diablo Boulevard. The Feasibility and Options Study will determine whether the City should pursue a pathway along all or part of this corridor. If constructed, the pathway would provide connections for bicyclists and pedestrians to BART, businesses and residences in Downtown Lafayette, and to trails in Briones Regional Park.

13JUL10: It was my first time traveling by bicycle on this road. As a car was approaching/passing me from behind I stayed to the right of the 'fog line' to ensure some safe clearance between me and the car. When I struck the pothole my front wheel jack-knifed to the right and I went over the handle bars head first. I instinctively put my hands out to break my fall but still struck the hard-packed gravel-and-rock with both hands and my helmeted head and landed in a heap with bleeding abrasions to both knees, a deep gouge on the back of my right hand, and a deep abrasion on my right elbow. The blow to my helmet raised a large, bleeding lump above my right eyebrow. The lower right side of my goggles broke the skin beneath my right eye but, there was no bleeding. The palms of my light cloth gloves were shredded by the impact when my hands absorbed part of my fall. My right eye had a dark purple color in the eyelid for several days after the crash. The most painful injury still (19 days later) is the deep bruising to the heel/palm/wrist of my right hand. My bicycle suffered marred-scratched-torn parts but is still road-worthy. My head-band, shorts, and gloves are blood stained from the injuries and my shirt is soiled from the smash into dirt.

I hit a large piece of gravel in the bike lane, flipping me off my bike. no broken bones but a good concussion and road rash. not exactly sure where I was when it happened, but know the last place I remember being before the fall.

A large piece of gravel was gathered up by one of the people that came to help me after I was launched from my bike. I assume that was the cause.
