The Again Means To Hellyer Park – BionicOldGuy

I did one other lengthy brisk cruise right this moment, principally to the north. I took the Coyote Creek Path to the primary flood, then labored round it on Monterey Freeway. I knew there was one other flood north of Blossom Hill Rd, so left the path and labored my manner over to Hellyer Ave, which acquired me to Hellyer Park. I needed to take a look at the velodrome, however bumped into one more flood proper earlier than it. I’m signed up for an occasion “HPV enjoyable day” there on Might twenty first. I hope both the floods go down by then or we are able to provide you with an alternate answer, as the one different entry to the velodrome is by way of an alternate pedestrian-only entrance with no parking. I had the unhappy responsibility of informing the organizers of the occasion in regards to the state of affairs.

I retraced my steps on Hellyer Ave and the path so far as Metcalf Ave, then took Monterey Freeway residence as a result of I used to be working a bit late. Monterey Freeway is a four-lane street with quick site visitors, but it surely has a large bike lane so continues to be fairly nice to experience subsequent to.

Inside Hellyer Park. One more place Coyote Creek floods the street. The white within the distance past the orange barrier is the concrete wall on the high of Hellyer Velodrome
That is searching on Coyote “Creek” from the bridge on Metcalf Street (in direction of the pedestrian bridge on the path). The “Creek” appears to be like extra like a river this yr. Anderson Dam continues to be about 40% full from all of the rain we acquired earlier this yr. The water is constantly gushing out of the outlet pipe on the backside, however it can take many extra weeks till the dam is empty, which it must be so work can proceed on the subsequent stage of the seismic retrofit.
