Our street is a form of chip seal called "Cape seal". The cape part as in South Africa. Been there 9 years. No it doesn’t last 9 years without another layer or two. But the local road millage takes care of it from time to time. It’s the one person garbage trucks that are really hard on the surface. Mass and momentum combined with using the air parking brake to stop while they jump off before it has stopped.

Shorty tonight but wanted to get out. Goal was for at least 17 MPH on 10 miles. Hoping I can get a 100 mile ride in on Friday. And maybe another on Tues-Weds.

This. Quite a few of us in the club have gotten punctures from riding on chip seal. We now avoid it at all costs.

We literally cannot hire and train enough frontline workers to meet current customer demand. It’s the same thing there. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions from there it probably gets political quickly. But those are the facts.

Chip seal depends a lot on the aggregate. Natural stone is round stone, slag or traprock is angular crushed. A number of agencies are fog sealing the chip seal which takes the curse off the sharp edges. A good chip seal does not have any loose stone or dust. Kent County requires their aggregate to be double washed.

the only real problem I have with the chip seal is how the height of the manhole covers are related to the height of the road. When they do these projects, sometimes the manhole covers are now too low, or too high compared to the road surface. I’m dodging manhole covers are Clyde Park and Burlingame now due to it.

It was 2 days old yesterday. In the wheel tracks was already fine. Just don’t want to stray out of them.
@ Jetlink « Wed 8:58:05 am »

It isn’t bad to ride on after a week or two. It’s just the interim that sucks.

most of the roads nearby my home got chip sealed in the past 2 months.
