|However, if you live in Baldwin Park, you can not ride in a swimming pool.
The only speed restriction for California states that cars withOUT drivers must not travel over 60MPH.

|A story I heard growing up in the SF Bay Area related to George Mount, a top US racer in the early-mid 70's (Olympian?). He was riding on Highway 24 between Orinda and Oakland. This highway goes through a tunnel in the Oakland/Berkeley hills and has a pretty good down grade. The story goes that George did not exit the highway and take the alternate route up and over the hills but went through the tunnel. A CHP pulled him over and gave him a choice of tickets: for riding a bike through the tunnel or for SPEEDING. Just for ego, I think he took the speeding ticket.|| |
