    Highway 1 Road Closure - It's that time again!

    Highway 1, north of Gorda, south of Big Sur is CLOSED INDEFINITELY as of this post date.

    Nacimiento-Ferguson Road is unaffected by this closure.

    Another rock slide due the the first significant rains we have just received this weekend and this morning. This occurred at Pitkin's Curve where CalTrans is already in the process of building a brand new bridge to span this area.

    "Unofficial" word says this may only a 3-4 day closure but that will depend on the Geology Report.

    It's only a small pile of gravel... Let's trundle over it and ride!... (Monty Python, "It's only a scratch..... come back and fight, coward!")

    Have you ever wondered, while tooling past a rocky cliff covered with that Caltrans "protective" netting, what would happen if a bunch of big rocks cut loose? Ha ha, now we know.

    Same thing happened last year, and we had to go around via Nacimiento Rd.

    This was April, and we rode right into this.

    Just want to confirm, this is north of where Nacimiento/Fergusson hits HWY 1? From what I could find, I believe it is further up near Lucia but want to make sure before I route myself that way for a ride in a couple weeks.

    Thanks
