If you mean where they have removed most of the asphalt and cut deep grooves in what is left (there's a name for that, but I don't remember what it is) I don't ride on it. If I run into it unexpectedly, I slow way down, and get off asap, even if it means doing a U turn. I've even had cars tossed all over the road by that. It's 10 times more dangerous than a dirt road, even a washboard dirt road, because the grooves are parallel to the bike. Even "rain grooves" can be dangerous on a bike. Earlier this year I rode 93 all the way across Nevada, and it was the most miserable trip I can remember. Over half of it has rain grooves, and between the grooves and the wind, the bike was all over the road.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
