15 Mile [postponed]

The San Luis Rey Bike Trail will be completely closed during Phase I of the sediment removal project in the San Luis Rey River (SLRR) (approximately October 10 – March 31) from Foussat Road to Douglas Drive. USACE requires a closure for safety purposes, due to the amount of heavy equipment and truck traffic on the levee and the potential for considerable pavement damage. This closure directly impacts a portion of the 7 and 15 mile courses for the 2017 Bike the Coast Ride. While there will be a detour, the 2017 ride (15 & 7 mile) will be postponed until next year when the Bike Trail is repaired.

    Charity

    NOLAH, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization conceived and founded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina by five San Diego residents with deep roots to the affected areas of the South.  When disaster strikes, much is done in the name of relief efforts to bring immediate comfort to the victims who have lost everything.  Less was being done long-term to help those families and communities rebuild their homes, businesses and lives. NOLAH strives to fill that need through a network of architects, contractors, labor, donors and volunteer activities.  Our mission has expanded to include helping our disabled veterans adapt to their situation by completing needed ADA alterations to their homes at no cost to them.  Please visit our website, www.nolah.net, for more details about our mission, our projects and ways to help us rebuild.
