I road today all roads and let me tell you this. It is all clear! :1: meaning minimum rocks or dirt on the road.  :7: Traffic was light but the two cagers I passed gave me ample space to pass without crossing the double yellow  :27:. I saw several motorcyclist and noticed they were having fun. As I was riding through G.R.R. I remembered a post regarding how bad, terrifying,  :13: for some people because there isn't a double line for most of that part of the canyon or it has some blind turns :34: Though in truth i find this section to be the most relaxing part of the canyon.  :2: Though truth be told I am not trying to drag my knee. Though stating this I saw this huge chevy sheriff SUV just road hogging the road going the opposite direction! :21: I mean don't these people think? :22: Ride safe people and I hope to see you all up there.  :17: Oh before I forget there will be a cycling race at GMR on 05/19/12 from 1 pm to 2:30 Pm. That being said add several hours before and after if you plan to ride that part of the road.  :44:

Yea the AMGEN Tour of CA fans usually ride up the hill early in the day and line the passes, there will be a heavy CHP and Forest Service     Police presence that day so if you do go be careful.  :17:

All the snow gone at the top of Glendora Mountain Ridge, I do prefer this to GMR as well, better round corners...................

Thanks for the  post! Im headed to GMR in about an hour.

Can we use this thread to keep people updated on Canyon conditions?  GMR, Ortega, Mulholland if your crazy enough to make the ride.
Old enough to know better, young enough to do it again.
