The prohibited section is actually from Reservation Rd to Toro Park Rd. The section from Spreckels Rd to Reservation rd is not prohibited. I live off Reservation Rd, and bike into work in Monterey about 4x/week (16 miles each way) There is a way through the neighborhood that you can go, but I have gone that way 5 times in the past two years, and almost ben hit 6 times, and actually hit once, by people pulling out of their driveway and not looking, since it is completely residential. After the last time of getting hit, I started riding 68 on the prohibited sections. I do this daily and not once have I been stopped by any police. I have even ridden by CHP parked on the side of the road, and they didn't even give me a second look. This is in almost two years of riding that prohibited section twice a day, 4x/week, and sometimes on weekends. The prohibited section is just over a mile long, so you will be through it in no time flat, either.
So, my suggestion. Ride the prohibited section.
