I know its early in the season, but just a heads up that if you WERE planning any kind of riding up the HP in the next while that the roadway surface is HORRIBLE.
I've been going up to Manning Park skiing the last couple of seasons and have NEVER seen it this bad. Particularly at the bluffs. (although they did put in some highly visible lit up signs at the nastiest corner up there.)
Potholes, seal crack disintegrating, road heaving, broken shoulders.........aside from the obvious snow, gravel, sand, debris etc....
Parts of it look like downtown Baghdad.
I know not many are planning rides up there in the next short while with the weather, but I just can't see road crews getting that road into any kind of decent shape for MONTHS.
Just a heads up....
