Mood: What's the temperature in the tanks today?

[*] posted on 6-6-2011 at 08:16 AM


We get some out here on the beach from time to time, mainly around holidays / three day weekends. We have a particular road here that is sandy and steep that we try to keep graded so folks here in the community can get in and out easily. Some of these bike/quad riders think it is their personal trail for fun and seem to delight in ripping roostertails as they tear the road up going back and forth, leaving us with a mess to deal with once they are gone, to say nothing of dozens of beer cans and other trash.

In half an hour they manage to destroy an entire days work. One of the neighbors put up a sign asking them to take care of the road and they simply ran it down, quad tire track right across the sign.

I like to ride but some out there seem to have absolutely no sense of common courtesy and good manners...

Made it back in one piece. Am working on a trip report and hope to get it posted by next week.

In the meantime, here's a picture from May 2001, the last time we were down there. The picture is representative of all the time we spent in streambeds.

Bump of a good thread from 2009-2011 on the mountain road behind and around San Quintin/El Rosario, that passes near San Isidoro.
