It doesn’t look like my post sent this morning hit OBRA list yet - but I rode both yesterday.
The sign blocking 18 is off to the side, but a gravel section remains, unmarked uphill or down. But if you were going up 18 I guess the sign off to the side would be a good hint. I was going downhill at that point so it was a surprise.
1818/28 is fine. Normal cracks and potholes mostly all marked with orange paint and the rougher ones with S L O W before it also in orange.
Lot of traffic on both yesterday, maybe because people held off when it was closed?
Anyway, still an awesome hill, plenty darned hot unless you go really early.
Road bike, 32s for me but it’s doable on 28s in my opinion. Even the gravel on 18 was better than the road to Hood River, just would be nice to have more time to slow down if you’re zipping down hill.
