Joe Shami’s Legacy – Mt Diablo Bike Turnout Project

Tragically, on April 14, 2021, Joe Shami, “The Legend of Mount Diablo”, was struck and killed by a vehicle while riding his bicycle in Lafayette, CA. In honor of Joe’s efforts, spirit, and inspiring demonstration of life fully lived, the California State Parks Foundation is dedicating the Bike Turnout Project on Mt. Diablo to Joe. Although he is not with us today, Joe left a special gift in his will of $123,415.61 to California State Parks Foundation to fund additional Bike Turnouts on Mount Diablo.
