California DMV - Sharing the Road with Bicycles

Please pay special attention to making right turns. That is a very dangerous situation, cyclists never know for sure if a driver sees them or not.

Here in Monterey

We've been here in Monterey this week for the Sea Otter Classic. We got here early to enjoy the region and I have had some great bike Rides.
17 mile road is a beautiful stretch, combining an ocean view with lush greenery. About 2/3 of the way into the ride there is some climbing, and while it may be difficult for beginer riders, shouldn't turn off others, just take your own pace and enjoy. The downhill is fabulous, their is very little traffic, only an occasional passing car and the road isn't too narrow, so you can take the corners at a good speed.
The off street bike path with starts at lovers point and goes through Marina dunes is a nice way to avoid some traffic without having to go out of your way.
And most of all, The Sea Otter Classic and festivities are upon us, enjoy that which is to come!
