A bicyclist was killed at this weekend’s Tour de Palm Springs, but event organizers have called it a fluke and say there is no need to overhaul safety measures to protect bicyclists. According to The Desert Sun, Saturday’s death was caused by a 21 year old driver suspected of going 100 mph on a stretch of roadway with a 50 mph speed limit. Outside of another fatality three years ago, the annual ride – which stretches 100 miles through the Coachella Valley – has had few problems in its 20-year history.
Two dozen mass bike rides are scheduled across California in 2018 and traffic laws and safety tips are included on websites for some of them, including the Solvang Century, Tour of Long Beach and the San Diego Century, right here at home. The 12th Annual San Diego Century will take place on May 19, 2018 and features 3 of San Diego’s most scenic routes consisting of 33, 67 or 105 miles with signature climbs that include the Purple Monster Climb, the Three Witches Climb and the RSF Climb.
