The approximately 2.5 mile-long extension of the Los Angeles River Bike Path south of Fletcher Drive has not been officially dedicated yet. But cyclists, like Jon B., who took the above photo this morning, have been pleasantly surprised to find they can already ride on a smooth strip of asphalt through Elysian Valley. “This used to be an obstacle course filled with tree roots busting through the black-top and treacherous pot holes every 10 feet, now it’s smooth as silk! There were crews of what looked to be volunteers cleaning up the little parks along this stretch as well,” said Jon in an email.
