In the news: Bike crash app, 3-foot passing bill and bike trail access


Fishermen work their boat up the Sacramento River as the sun reflects off the CalSTRs building in West Sacramento on a recent morning along the Sacramento River Bike Trail. Salmon fishing along the Sacramento River is getting better every day according to the Western Outdoor News website.

In the news, early last week the state Assembly approved the 3-foot passing bill, according to a report by the California Bicycle Coalition and a story in the Sacramento Bee. Keep an eye out this week as the bill is expected to arrive on Gov. Brown’s desk.
While the 3-foot passing bill is good news, some bad news comes from an article in the Sacramento Press that says the state parks department is considering closing off one of two bicycle access points to Old Sacramento from the Sacramento River Bike Trail. Practical Cycle bike shop owner, Tim Castleman, whose shop is in Old Sac, has started a petition to prevent the closure, the article reports.
And, if you’re looking for an iPhone app to help in case of a bicycle collision, a New York City lawyer has come up with a free app called the Bike Crash Kit, according to a report in the Urban Velo magazine website.
