Bike Detour.png

Mile 1.5: Recently the construction on University has made the route tough - all the way back to north of Campus. On this route, just after Harvard follow the posted detour signs & turn onto the University Trail bike path to the San Diego Creek Trail bike path & slow down to avoid all of the construction zone rather than taking the narrow lane & steel plates on University all the way to California at mile 2.4. (Assuming the road work construction has not been completed by October 2019!)

Mile 1.5: the construction on University has made the route tough - all the way back to before Campus. On this route, just after Harvard follow the BIKE DETOUR signs & merge onto the connector to the San Diego Creek Trail bike path (SLOW DOWN) to avoid all of the construction zone rather than taking the narrow lane & steel plates all the way to Jamboree where University becomes Eastbluff. You can resume at mile 3.2 of the route at the NW corner of Jamboree & Eastbluff. (Assuming construction will still be going on in September)

Left-Arrow-Bicycle-Detour-Sign-X-M4-9cL.gif

Mile 27.7 on the full route: The last few time we rode #12 the construction on University impacted the FULL route at Campus & University. The plan is to take Campus east toward UCI, clover leaf right on University & take the San Diego Creek bike path upstream under Campus. The route calls for a Right onto University and then a right on the connector then a right to take the bike path back under Campus upstream… In December 2018 the connector was torn out, and the construction makes it hard to get to the path. The detour is to skip the path & turn LEFT on University instead of RIGHT, then turn Left on Harvard, then Right on Michelson back to the route slip at mile 29.1  (Assuming the road work construction has not been completed by October 2019 ! If the connector has been replaced or even, we hope, improved to the SW corner of Campus & University, the route will work as published.)

IRVINE RANCH WATER DISTRICT HEADQUARTERS
2nd Wednesday of Even Months in 2019

6:30 Social Time -  7:00 Presentation

Guest Speaker / Program:
We will have a panel discussion explaining what to do when there is an injury emergency -
Beyond First Aid & calling 911 - what happens when a crash results in injury, paramedics & ambulances are called, ER issues, Medical info & ID, and what our club’s supplemental insurance will cover…and what role fellow members have to safeguard others & be a witness. retired OC Fire Authority Paramedic Dave Verdecia will share his long career experience in helping injured people.
President Marc Urias and Treasurer Steve Buescher know what we need to do regarding club insurance and personal liability, and Communications Director Bill Sellin will discuss the importance of using crash@bikeirvine.org, witness reporting, and details of what paramedics are looking for on an ID / Medical Information card.

Time allowed, Vice President Dave Murphy and his wife Marsh Murphy will share some travelog photos of cycling in New York.

There will be raffle prizes awarded to a lucky few attendees so don’t miss out!
If you have a suggestion for any future meeting, please contact
bod@BikeIrvine.org.

Movie: The Game Changers

Fueled by the truth

Fueled by the truth

Not a BCI ride or event, but now and then a limited engagement movie comes to town that BCI Members want to share - here is one that looks interesting… one night only at 7:30 at several theaters around OC: https://www.fathomevents.com/events/the-game-changers

Shared by BCI Member Marylin Austin who says,“My favorite part is the interview with Dotsie Bausch from Irvine, CA, a multi National Cycling Champion. Dotsie place second on the velodrome at the 2012 Olympics at the age of 39. As a former Age-grade National Time Trial champion I was so honored and excited to meet Dotsie at last years Plantrician Project conference. “

We meet at the picnic tables at DCP
