The Mud Creek Slide is being called the biggest landslide to hit the Central Coast, at least in recent memory. On May 20, millions of tons of rocks and dirt collapsed over Route 1 when four separate, adjacent slides triggered at the same time, combining into one massive terrain avalanche.

Four different landslides rolled into one buried California's famous coastal highway under millions of tons of earth and rocks last Saturday night at Mud Creek. Located eight miles north of Ragged Point - where Hwy. 1 has been closed to Big Sur-bound traffic for months - the slide brought down enough dirt to extend the current shoreline by 250 feet. State Route 1 now lies under about 35 feet of dirt for a quarter mile.

Four participants in this year's AIDS Lifecycle Ride were being treated for injuries Monday evening, following a crash along Highway 1 near Moss Landing in Monterey County.

The California Highway Patrol says the incident happened Monday morning when a truck pulled in front of the riders. While none of the cyclists have life-threatening injuries, two may require surgery.

It had yet to be determined by the ride's medical crew whether the remaining two can rejoin the event, according to the ride's spokesperson, Ryan McKeel.
