View New Bike Route Map
The Canyon Road bridge that connects Moraga with the community of Canyon and the Redwood Canyon area, has been closed as of 7:00 pm Tuesday, April 18 for an indefinite period of time. The bridge will be closed to all traffic, including vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian. The bridge has suffered structural damage as a result of earth movement and has been closed due to the danger of collapse. Click Here for additional details regarding this closure.
*BIKE ROUTE ADJUSTMENT* The Adult/Student/Relay Division cycling portion of the Moraga Triathlon is affected by this closure and the new route can be seen (very roughly) in the attached and here with mile markers; refined map to follow.
The adjusted course takes cyclists South on Moraga Road to Canyon Road, left on Camino Pablo to the entrance of Rancho Laguna Park where they will turn around heading back towards Canyon Road. Upon approaching Canyon Road, athletes will be directed by volunteers to U-turn and repeat the loop before exiting onto Canyon Road heading towards Moraga Road and returning to the Campolindo High School transition area. Athletes will travel 4 total lengths of Camino Pablo instead of the original 2 lengths; this new route is approximately 12 miles instead of the usual 14 miles. The 5-7 year old and 8-11 year old routes remain unchanged at this time.
Working with the Moraga Police Department and Lamorinda CERT coordinators to determine the safest possible route adjustment, we are confident that this new route will be a comparable athletic challenge as well as enjoyable.
