Encinitas officials have defended a new protected bikeway along Coast Highway 101 between Cardiff and Solana Beach that may seem inviting for less-experienced cyclists but has actually been the site of multiple accidents, even striking some of the area’s most veteran riders.
Len Bourgeois, a local cyclist who has been riding for decades, said he suffered a double fracture to his collarbone after hitting one of the new bikeway’s wheel stops in Cardiff, immediately flipping his wheel around and forcing him to the ground.
Bourgeois has yet to report the incident to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, but he would not be the first.
