    Anybody else get caught by this? Nearly got me a few weeks ago, pretty much the entire smooth and tight bit south of Myers Creek Road - covered in gravel.

    Is almost covering an entire lane with little pebbly gravel really the best way to clean up after an accident? Gravel doesn't necessarily shift even after a good rain.

    I'd prefer a little sand and a well placed "Oil on road" sign...

    There was gravel in many parts of Chum Creek Rd a few weeks ago due to road maintenance....
    When I rode there, no warning signs to warn road users.

    So normal practice is to throw sand over a spill and come back next day (probably up to 3 days if it's a Friday) to clean it up.
    You tell me there's no better way???
    Piss poor if you ask me....
