Tough going for residents riding on 2 wheels
It wasn’t a great week for Claremont cyclists. A woman was knocked off her bike late Thursday afternoon by a driver coming out of the parking structure in Village West. The driver failed to stop to see if she was ok. Another female cyclist was airlifted to USC Medical Center last week when she lost control of her bicycle near Mountain Avenue and Via Espirito Santos Street. She had been traveling at unsafe speeds and unable to stop, according to police. She suffered from abrasions to her elbow and thigh and pain to her shoulder and back.
