Experiences with the new tunnel s. of Pacifica, CA?
« on: June 13, 2013, 01:44:25 pm »
Hey, Touristas:

It looks like my wife and I will be on the coast again this year, I think the fourth time for both of us.  Oh well, it's lots of good riding and it stays cool.  We'll be riding from the Sonoma coast to San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbara.  Has anyone been through the new Devil's Slide tunnel?  I saw a youtube clip, and the bike lane looks wonderful, although I understand that Caltrans did NOTHING with the steep, narrow, shoulderless approach from the north out of Pacifica.  Oh well.  I'm wondering about the south side after the tunnel.  Has Caltrans cleared out the shoulder, or is it still super tight as I saw in the video ?  We'll probably be going through some time in July, maybe early August.

Oh, one more thing:  Any news on the damn chip seal those Caltrans bastards laid down between Ragged Pt. and Cambria?  That used to be one of my favorite stretches--so fast and smooth with the constant tailwinds.  Grrrrr....
