We've never met, but I have a question you might be able to answer about the Summer Access Road. I wanted to find out if there was someone I could request permission to ride my bike on it. Since you appear to live nearby, I figured you might know the status of this road for cycling and who owns it. Maybe they totally don't care or maybe they'll come after trespassers with their gun - I have no idea. If you have any information I'd appreciate it tremendously. I'll see a reply here, or you can email me at email@example.com. Thanks heaps.
You can totally ride it, nobody cares. MTB or cross bike though since it is super steep, bumpy and gravel. Wouldn't try it withe the roadbike....
Thanks! I actually did ride it on my groad bike, but since I was focused on dodging traffic I didn't see the sign at the bottom. It's the steepest road I've ever [barely] ridden.
Unfortunately your HOA seems to care. I asked their permission to ride it and they said, "Our concern with someone riding a bike on the road is that there is literally no shoulder and the traffic on the road can be quite unpredictable. Thus there is a significant safety concern around the use of the road by bikers and we request that you not ride a bike on the road."
No idea I never asked. I just rode or walked up&down the road. I moved away too so I am not sure what the situation is currently.
