Bike Path Fail

This very short bike path that bypasses a busy street is a "what were they thinking" moment. The path is about six or seven years old. It should be required that any engineer who designs cycling infrastructure should also be a cyclist.

This oversized seam is right in the center of the path. The rubber caulk has failed. This poor design requires constant maintenance. Time to send an email off to the City of Westlake Village. 

Being on a trike nothing much happened. A scuffed tire is all I suffered. Imagine being on two wheels and your tire lands in this rut.


Update 5/18
I sent an email to the City of Thousand Oaks back in April. Work is finally being done to repair the problem.
