GU-y Mess Spoils Our Coastline

No Gu wrappers on Pebble Beach.

Come on triathletes. Stop tossing your GU wrappers all over the highway!

This wanton disregard for our beautiful California coast is a black mark against triathletes and the Big Kahuna Triathlon, held on Sept. 12 in and around Santa Cruz.

While I realize you’re competing, you’re not in the Tour de France where hordes of maintenance crews pick up after the racers. I’m sure the race organizers will pick up all the water bottles littering Hwy 1, but not the energy-gel wrappers.

And I thought athletes were concerned about the environment. I guess not.

I had an otherwise enjoyable ride to Santa Cruz on Hwy 1, although the usual tailwind was absent.
