just thought I would update you guys on the local mountain roads.
On saturday I had a chance to ride up both Cypress and Seymour.
Cypress was good, I rode up around 2:00pm. Roads were in pretty good shape, dry and clear. Gravel and sand was at a minimum, potholes were few and far between, but traffic was pretty heavy (people still trying to ski I guess). It got a bit cold at the top and I slowed down as the roads seemed slightly damper up high and snow on the side of the road. All in all, road is healthy and safe for the most part, especially on a dry day.
Seymour was later, around 4:30pm. Tar snakes are worse than ever, there were so many of them all over and they really make me nervous. Roads were dry and free of sand and gravel though, and there was only the odd pothole to watch out for. Cypress was better, but busier for traffic.
until next time...
