Day 234 - Safe Riding and the Glendora Mointain Loop

September 28, 2013      No weight this week.



Today my workout assigned was a three hour social ride. The Puppy needed a little extra attention and took up a bit more time than was expected.

After doing a bit of research today regarding La Tuna Canyon Road and the number of accidents/fatalities, I discovered that it does have a checkered past. Although, there has only been one cyclist death and it was not any drivers fault as far as I can tell. Still, there have been several driver related fatalities and even more accidents. Recent bike lanes were added to the road so data is still too new but it appears to have made the road at least a little safer for cyclist.
I spotted another climbing route called the Glendora Mountain Loop. Apparently, the road is closed to traffic which could be very cool.
I'm always on the look out for safer riding places.

Until tomorrow my friends.
