Sonoma Mountain Road bites dust

Doni and I worked from home today, which means bike ride for lunch! We headed to Glen Ellen via Sonoma Mountain Road...only to find the road is washed out...with no apparent effort in progress to fix it. A couple hundred feet of asphalt are moving down the hill.

Fortunately we were riding our "little" bikes and after some consideration, found a path through! The hardest part was the last pic. But you can see a little ramp there which actually made it pretty easy.

Sorry for the bad pics. We weren't expecting to take any and grabbed these with our cell phone.

Re: Sonoma Mountain Road bites dust

A ramp was mentioned, so I'm sure they jumped it.....
I'm not lost, I'm right there at the cursor on my GPS...Where ever that is

Do a poppa-wheelie

I cried because I could not wheelie, till I met a man with no motorcycle..

Re: Sonoma Mountain Road bites dust

The biggest barrier (literally) was fitting Kimber's bike between the tree and the slab o' concrete with the "road closed" sign (which we obviously took as a suggestion, not an order).
Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.
