At a Glance
For years, motorcyclists had been railing about the maddening quality of the asphalt on this southern loop route off DH6. And the outrageous thing is that when the county finally stepped in, it broke the first rule of Destination Highway maintenance: “Don’t straighten it, just repave it, stupid.” So many curves were ripped up while refurbishing the Pavement on the Mad River Rd piece that Twistiness no longer maxes out. Nice work, guys. And don’t give us any drivel about better sightlines--they only enable the pylons to drive off the road faster. You want to improve Engineering? How about lane and shoulder width? Sigh. Still, you won’t be irritated by the Scenery; the green forests in the Mad River and Van Duzen River valleys, the panorama from the top of Mad River Ridge and the views along Ruth Lake are still intact. Nor does the Remoteness in this sparsely developed area give any cause for resentment. So stop fulminating and get out and enjoy this road. ‘Cause we all know that when the new stuff starts to heave and crack, it’ll be years before anything’s done about it. So there’ll be plenty of time to get pissed all over again.
