description

This is concerning the separated bike path on the south side of Stanley Blvd. just east of the intersection with Bernal/Valley. A new dirt bike recreational facility has recently been constructed here and there are a couple driveways that cross the trail. Visibility of the trail from these driveways is rather poor and likewise for trailusers to see motorists exiting the driveways. Installation of a couple wide-angle (convex) mirrors would substantially improve visibility and reduce the chance of a collision.

Traveling south on Bernal, approaching the bridges before Vineyard, there's an old illegal "Bikes Use Sidewalk" sign. Ironically, there's a bike lane on the bridge. I didn't have a chance to check for a similar sign northbound.

direction

southbound

type

bike ways (paths, lanes, routes) not clearly marked

description

Just after leaving the Iron Horse Trail southbound along Valley, approaching Busch, there's a sign for the temporary IHT route. Confusingly, the sign has a left arrow, implying a left turn at Busch. It should have a straight-ahead arrow, telling southbound IHT users to continue straight across Busch along the east side of Valley.

2500 Cinderellas on the Road

2500 Cinderellas on the Road

Bonnie Powers has promoted and ridden the Cinderalla Classic for 33 years. She was in good spirits on April 4 as the “Prince Charmings” in the Valley Spokemen put on a tremendous event that attacts thousands of female riders to the Livermore and San Ramon Valleys. The women- and girls-only metric-century kicks-off the ride season each year and pre-registration again reached the 2500 limit well before the day of the event.

Among the riders was EBBC Board Member Mary Norton, joined by her daughter who made the Cinderalla part of her spring break visit from her senior year in college.

Costumed riders add to the festivity and seem to get more creative every year. Check out the photos of Kimberly’s jester outfit and coordinated message pinned to her back. She stopped by the EBBC table to chat with Ricardo and Robert after “a great ride on a beautiful day,” sharing that she only began regularly riding a bicycle two years ago during Bike to Work Day!
