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.)

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 and then go up stream on the San Diego Creek bike path; To get there, the route calls for a Right onto University and then a right on the connector to take the path back under Campus upstream… In December the connector was gone, and the construction made 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 July 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.)
