New Year's Day on Diablo

What could be a better start to the New Year than to join the traditional ride up Mt Diablo? There really is no single organized ride. Weather permitting, there will be hundreds of friends representing all East Bay bicycling organizations at the summit.

The IronHorse Trail is being used, and blocked, by trucks and other large vehicles just north of the intersection of Bollinger. Large gravel and other construction vehicles are using the path for parking while loading and unload materials, forcing cyclists to ride on unimproved dirt which is full of goatheads and star thistles. Spoke with a worker on the site and was told that the manager worked for the County.

Waste Management drivers are leaving empty debris cans in the middle of the bike lanes, unnecessarily, every Wednesday morning. This forces cyclists out into traffic and will cause an accident sooner or later. There is plenty of room to the right of the bike lane for these cans. Recommend submitting a notice of hazardous conditions to WM and the cities (Alamo, Danville, and Walnut Creek).

It would be great to see if either the County of Contra Costa and the city of Walnut Creek run a 6 month trial of a speed bump or deterrent before and after the iron horse trail crossing on Walden Road to slow the traffic down. Cars have been increasing their speed and failing to yield for the oncoming traffic from bikes and pedestrians who use the trail crossing at Walden Road. Contra Costa police sometimes monitor the cross walk, but not enough. Either cars to do not yield at all, or they are 10+ mph over the 25mph speed limit. Walnut Creek Police are rarely around to patrol this either. Someone is going to get plowed over at this crossing if something is not done to slow down the traffic on Walden Road. I live on the road and it's sometimes hard to gauge how fast cars are actually coming from Civic/Oak road towards to the Iron Horse trail crossing. Im sure of the process to start with the city or county, but something should be done. Maybe it's already started who knows??

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.
