(Victor Valley) – In this Caltrans News Flash, Caltrans District 8 (San Bernardino & Riverside counties) teamed up with Inland Empire Biking Alliance (IEBA) to open temporary bicycle access lanes on Interstate 40 through the Mojave Desert.
Earlier this year bicycling enthusiasts and Adventure Cycling, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire and empower people to travel by bicycle, approached Caltrans requesting bicycle access to the interstate. Caltrans added temporary cycling access in two locations on I-40 until San Bernardino County makes repairs to storm damaged Route 66, the normal bicycle route.
The two access points are from Fort Cady (Exit 23) to Ludlow (Exit 50) – about 28 miles — and from Kelbaker Road (Exit 78) to Mountain Springs Road (Exit 115) – about 42 miles.
