Those of you who ride the Tour of Long Beach route: Do you dismount when going through the Dominguez Gap section (just north of the 405) between the LA River Trail and Bixby Knolls? Just wondering, as I feel like I can't ride through the area with the large wood chips (the gravel seems okay, though).
Time to let the tour organizers know your thinking about that part. I ask myself, what other tour with that many riders have that kind of obstacle course? When Palm Springs gets windy, that whole ride is an obstacle course.
