I'll be in Pinole on Christmas morning and I'm thinking of going for a ride to Martinez along the Carquinez scenic drive. I may make it a one-way to my brother-in-law's house in Walnut Creek where xmas dinner will happen.
Anyway, I was wondering ...
1. I know that a section of the road is closed, but passable for bikes and pedestrians. Is it presently passable as such?
2. How illegal is it to enter the closed area?
3. If I do the ride on Christmas day, and it rains on the previous day, would it be advised to put cross tires on my Surly or keep the road tires?
4. How much car traffic?
Thanks a million.
