Georgetown Calif--Caution road repair
California Gold Country road repairs.
Just went for a local loop ride Georgetown/Placerville.
There are County road repairs going on in the Georgetown area. Marshall road from Hwy 49 to Georgetown has been repaved and patched. The patch repairs are Tar and Gravel. Going up (49 to Gtown) there aren't too many patches mostly repaving--nice and smooth, but going down there are several miles of gravel patches.
In Georgetown there is an illuminated road work sign indicating road work ahead on the Georgetown Wentworth Springs road. I did not go up as I had planned, so I didn't get a first hand look at how good or bad it might be.
If you are planning on riding Wentworth Spring road through mid-August be prepared for road crews and gravel on the road. After Labor day be prepared for gravel on the road.
Road 193 [Placerville-Georgetown-Cool] is in good rideable shape.
If brute force doesn't work, you aren't using enough!

Thanks for the info. I haven't been doing much riding because of family stuff, and that f'ing downstairs bathroom tile job. Take care.

I went through Georgetown on Monday from WWS and Ice House Road from the 50 and saw the signs but no construction. I guess they started on Tuesday.
Hey hold my beer and watch this!
