San Domingo Road route will be changed
Sadly, the short ride through the San Domingo valley has to be rerouted due to storm damage from the series of atmospheric rivers that roared through the Northern California Foothills and Sierra this winter . The damage makes the route unsafe for bicycles.
I drove the San Domingo route last week partly because I wanted to see it again; I am in love with the land, creek and canyon. I think it’s one of the prettiest parts of the Northern California Foothills. I also wanted to make sure it was safe for bicycles. I was heartbroken by what I found, it is no longer a safe route for our bicycle event. In places the road base was gone and rocks poked through the mud like the bones of California. In other places I drove through deep mud. And in one place chunks of paving were simply gone. While I think it would be fun for a mountain or gravel bicycle, we can’t recommend it for Mr. Frog’s Wild Ride.
We're working on a new short bicycle route that captures the beauty of Calaveras County, with some historic sites. Watch this space as we will have details soon.
