Hoo Koo E Koo

Today I went for a short but steep ride on Tam.

These dirt roads have amazing views around every turn.

A Ranger was staking out the intersection of Railroad Grade and Hoo Koo E Koo.

apparently a dangerous intersection?

The Ranger said he was there as a "visual presence" to slow down cyclists.
I was happy to hear that there had been no incident so far today.

In "incident" news, 4 people in Marin were sent to hospitals with serious and fatal injuries from car accidents within 36 hours this week.

2 Novato pedestrains hit in 12 hours. MarinIJ

Corte Madera crash injuries 2. MarinIJ

Unfortunately car accidents are a leading cause of death and injury (CDC).
