    Interesting New Trail Signage

    Saw these at Phoenix Sonoran Preserve (South). Interesting....the second one is just a reminder that the 0.4 mile climb out of the parking lot has, on average, a 10.7% grade....my legs know it....

    Wow. That's an eye-bleeding half mile. Cool signs though...as long as you have your smartphone you should never get lost.
    The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is you’ll crash.

    Those are pretty cool. What happens when you scan them with your cell phone? I'm guessing they take them to the reserve's website? It would be sweet to get some of those for the new DH trails that are going to be built in flagstaff.

    If you've got a smart phone you could actually scan the photo in the thread. I think it gives you a google map with the trails overlaid on it. My phone is dumb and haven't done it, but I've seen it done!
    Today's the day I eat bikes.
