Location

Iron Horse Trail intersection with De Anza Trail
Concord
US

description

Near the northern terminus of Iron Horse Trail there is an intersection leading to DeAnza trail. This intersection is at the foot of a trail bridge. Traveling northbound and attempting a right turn, the angle of intersection requires a sharp turn of approximately 140 degrees. Due to the bridge construction, the cyclist cannot improve the turning line. There is structure right up to the point of intersection, and if the rider attempts to approach wide left before turning right, they risk accidents with other riders approaching from behind. There is also a post in the middle of the bridge entrance to complicate matters. If the rider mis-judges and can't make a sufficiently sharp turn and goes wide, they are rewarded with a sharp dropoff off of the path of between 18 and 24 inches into a narrow ditch with a chain link fence on the other side.

Carquinez Benicia Grand Scenic Cycle Loop

The August 2009 opening of a new bike path has opened an excellent bridge-to-bridge recreational loop ride over the Benicia–Martinez and Carquinez Bridges. The basic route is 25 miles, accessible by public transit, quite scenic, and consisting almost entirely of pleasant to ride roads. The route has restrooms and water, and at least three good cities to purchase lunch in.

Iron Horse Trail between Pleasanton and Dublin

When traveling between Pleasanton and Dublin (both directions) on the Iron Horse Trail, there's little or no signage to guide you through the BART station. From Pleasanton, going west on Owens, there's a sign directing you to turn in to the driveway next to Oracle. Once you do that, you're on your own until you cross under the freeway and eventually notice the trailhead beyond the Dublin bus bays. Southbound, there's a similar problem once you leave the trail near the Dublin bus bays. There's no obvious path through the BART station, just a sidewalk (with a "walk bikes" sign) and a roadway. I'm not sure if this is EBRPD, BART, or Dublin/Pleasanton jurisdiction.

It is a 2006 Specialized Hardrock Pro Bike. It is the black/gray colored bicycle. Had a small pouch under the seat for storing stuff from Livermore cyclery. Had a water bottle holder, a holder for a small air pump and it had a spedometer on the handle bars. It was very dusty as it had just been ridden up the Plesanton ridge.
