Storm damage to Santa Cruz Country roads for the Strawberry Fields Forever ride


In my early post on Strawberry Fields and the bad roads, I did not feel that my words did justice to this.  Santa Cruz Country was one of the hardest hit areas of the winter rains, wiping out piers, shorefront shops and roads.  I didn't take pictures as I knew that there was this four-minute video of the damage.  I start the video right at Highland Way (1:21), which was one of the first damaged roads of the ride.

We also rode on Green Valley Road (1:37) and Hazel Dell Road (1:42).  Keep in mind that this video just shows the massive washouts, not the potholes and minor damage which was everywhere.
