Diablo South Gate access thru Diablo CC

This morning I rode through Diablo CC to get to the secondary access point to Diablo Scenic, but someone has locked the gate and put up a large sheet of plywood across it. This is NOT the main cut through that most people use, but it's so contentious that I try to avoid that area, deeper into the CC. This secondary access is a pedestrian gate at the end of Calle Los Calledos. I'm not sure who owns that gate, or the surrounding area, but it looks to be shut down now. If we lose legal access to the main cut through, then there will be no way to get to Scenic other than Diablo Rd. Perhaps this secondary one was never a legal access way, but it's too bad now that it's impassable. I ended up going out to Diablo Rd for the short distance on the road, but it's two somewhat challenging left turns, with lots of traffic and visibility problems.

they are at it again I see.. they way I see it the city/county whatever paved those roads so we have the right to use them. I always go up further along Alameda diablo.. checking that segment on strava today.. a number of people went that way

I dont like using Diablo (heading east) in the morning because the sun at certain times of the day is blinding to drivers. I've been approaching from the east last 3/4 times, so I guess I will continue too.

Hahahaha has anyone seen the latest stunt? Some nutjob on Calle Arroyo has hired a security guard who has posted up near the intersection with Diablo Rd. He's wearing a body camera and apparently there's another camera stationed nearby, I suppose in an attempt to record who is coming through, or maybe hoping to get footage of a confrontation with the guard. The funny part is that the CC owns the half of the road going into the club and they have already taken the stance that cyclists are allowed. It's funny to me that with all the **** going on in the world right now, one overly rich jerk with too much time on his hands is spending so much energy on such a non issue.

Btw the secondary access gate is open again. Heard it was closed off to prevent any "looters" from getting in during whatever protests were going on there. So, just use that, avoid the lunatic on the other area altogether.

Oh man, it's a Diablo Country Club civil war! I knew the problem was with one or two residents but that's interesting.

Was that just in front of one of the neighbors houses?

There were reportedly 13 of these signs in front of the private homes. It's definitely a show of non-support for the one elitist tightass.
