The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) and the Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) deserve kudos for creating a cycling friendly piece of important roadway. They have made the Date Palm Dr. section of road that connects Vista Chino to Varner Rd. safe for cyclists. Prior to these recent repairs the north-bound section of this roadway was the worst cycling road in the Coachella Valley. This section of road is an important link for recreational cyclists who traverse our valley using Varner and Dillon Roads.
