Have you heard of CV Link, the over-priced bike path that would run through The Coachella Valley? The project (which is not really needed and not really wanted) tried a new way to drum up support from Coachella Valley locals: scare them!
A benefit though that most haven’t recognized is that the link may be one of the best opportunities for emergency personnel to get in and out of the valley, tending to our wounded and/or stranded citizens. And residents who own bicycles, golf carts and other low-speed electric vehicles may have a ready-made escape route when other roads may be impassable.
Yes, all you doubters. One day, maybe not too far from now, you will be thanking Paul as he puts you on his handlebars and pedals you away from the destruction of Palm Springs to the oasis of Indio after The Big One strikes. Past the countless roadways that have been blocked by falling debris – but not CV Link, oh no!
“Oh, thank God for you and this over-priced bike path!” you will proclaim, as a low-speed electric vehicle passes on one side with emergency personnel passing on the other. Paul Harris just smiles, knowing that he and his bike path have saved us all from chaos, destruction, and anarchy.
