    Calaveras covered with loose gravel

    One of my favorite roads - I went to ride it today, and it was covered from about a mile south of Sunol Regional Park with about a half inch of loose gravel. I didn't bother to ride it past there (the sign said the fresh gravel went on for 7 miles), but turned around and went to work. I think if it really went on for 7 miles the entire road is probably covered with fresh gravel all the way to the bottom of the wall.

    I hate it when they do that! (although I do appreciate well maintained roads). I got my rebuilt bike back late yesterday, so this was my first ride on it. At least that worked.

    What's with all our favorite roads being filled with loose gravel?
    I'm in it to finish it.
