Heads Up on Redwood Road

#1 Post by SwitzGirl » Wed Aug 15, 2007 9:00 pm

I have no idea if this is the right place to post this... but here it is, nonetheless.

I was out riding on Redwood Road today and they are doing some major road construction, which means tons of gravel. You might want to stay away from it until it gets cleared up or at least, ride safely! It was quite an introduction to riding through gravel. I'm pretty happy to say that my bike survived without a fall. :) Construction started today...so it might be a while.

My 'home track' ruined. :(

I'll be sure to proceed with caution next time. I barely get to ride it anymore anyway.

Do you guys live near Redwood?

Pretty close. About ten minutes

I know everyone already heard about the crazy cops in helicopters and such...but when I was there yesterday they had these little silver undercover cop cars...I wouldn't have known they were cop cars until they turned on their sirens and lights that sit on their windshield and not on their roofs. They're getting serious! lol

Thanks for the heads-up on road conditions and "silver sneaky popo". :lol: Way to look out for your own girlie!

Thank you. I've seen the gravel from Pinehurst up to Skyline but I haven't seen one of those cars yet.
