Video: Dangers of biking on Pacific Coast Highway


Ever since I was 4, I have known how dangerous Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu is. Now I am 8 years old and PCH is worse. I guess this problem is a lot more complicated than I thought, so I asked the help of my parents to produce this article with a video (located at left or by clicking here).

We rode along the Malibu coast to see the dangerous spots.

The PCH in Malibu has many bicycle traps. A new one is located in far west Malibu.

Due to the recent Springs brush fire that burned near west Malibu, Caltrans has installed a concrete barrier alongside the road, which is in some cases too dangerous for cars and bicyclists. Bicyclists get trapped. There is not enough room between the wall and the vehicle lane.

Be careful, bicyclists! 

I made a video to warn you guys. Check it out.
