Gravel news: Kjósarskarðsvegur (Road nr. 48)

Like promised here are few photos of the first gravel section, at Kjósarskarðsvegur (road nr. 48)

We are going to break this down a bit:

#1
2,3 km before the gravel, approximately 6.7 km from the intersection of road 48 and 36: This is a new road surface that is course but not a lot of loose stones, cars will move them around though.

#2
Where the gravel starts, approx. 9 km from the intersection: This gravel is quite firm but be aware of washboards.

#3
Approx. 9,3 km from the intersection we have this old road surface with potholes, be aware of the last one, it is surprisingly deep

#4
Approx. 10,4 km from the intersection: This VERY course gravel is in your way, watch out! It is very loose, narrow tires can dig into this surface. A mountain bike is highly recommended here.

#5
Approx. 11,5 km from the intersection you are back on a gravel road that should be more firm but with some washboards.

#6
11,9 km from the intersection: Again, new road surface that is a bit course, similar to #1. This lasts for about 2,2 km.
