Ooops, I take it back. I did not ride 126 last fall. I rode a different road to the south of 126 that is part of the Backcountry Discovery Route. My ride can be found on this map: https://www.google.com/maps/d/drive?sta ... sp=sharing
The track in question is NMBDR7 - Jemez dirt. It was super fun.

Timing is everything I guess. I rode this road last fall with no hint of sand. Just cruzed right on through. I have no idea what made the difference. Recent rain maybe?

Follow Up to Aril 30, 2020 Jemez Ride

After being frustrated with not being able to get through to Cuba on my GSA last week, I decided to drive my 4 x 4 pickup on the same route to see what the road looked like after about mile marker 23 heading west. It only got worse as far as the sand was concerned. At least for me, the road is impassable. After the initial sand trap, there were a number of really bad spots for another four or five miles. Be warned!

On the other hand, if you have ridden 126 all the way from the fish hatchery to Cuba, more power to you and do you offer riding lessons?

I hope this helps some other riders avoid problems.

Ride on!
