Just a head up, for those doing the first big ride of the year this long weekend.
Highways are tar stripping between Hope and the #5 and #3 exits. They are sparing no expense in coating the entire roadway with sand in aid of your riding pleasure. For those not on KLR's and GS's take care.
There is also heavy enforcement between the Hope slide on the #3 and Manning, including a speed trap based 6 miles past the slide in the entrance to Sunshine Valley.
Take care and have a great long weekend!
