At a Glance
California Inline Skating’s MISRA (Modest Inline Skating Road Assessment) gives this transition between DH63 Lee Vining – Benton and Hwy 395 four skate wheels for its smooth Pavement, light traffic and surrounding mountain Scenery, recommending it to beginning fruitbooters who have mastered “basic stroking.” Great. Bad enough that bicycle websites tout this DH, now you have to watch for sessions of bladerunners from nearby Mammoth Lakes clogging up the scene. The sketchy MISRAble system confirms a few things but ’core riders obviously need TIRES to get completely up to speed. For example, Twistiness is so low even panicking am motorcyclists won't try and use their heels to brake. What curvitude does exist is almost entirely located in the first half transfer from the Adobe Valley up into the rasta-mellow Benton Range. There are only a few corners down the Watterson Canyon tranny and virtually zippo around both fake Lake Crowley and through the volcanic, flat bottom Long Valley Caldera. As you’d expect then, Character’s a bit of a poseur, though Engineering’s pretty rad with only one potential sack-it disaster spot on the tightest piece up to Banner Ridge. Remoteness is gnarly since the only development consists of a campground/store/cafe and low-key Whitmore Hot Springs. That’s probably why speed tax po-pos spend so little time here – that and the fact dildobladers can’t stroke fast enough to exceed the 55-mph (90-kmh) limit. As for those rodneykingesque “Share the Road” signs, well, why can't we all just get along? After all, we do share a common belief in wheels in line.
