A Word to the Wise … Highway biking along Hwy 5 is very dangerous, as is biking along curvy 2-lane mountain roads like Hwy 2 and Aska Road. Plan your routes accordingly. Respect private property and trails marked hiking only (BMT and AT especially). If biking in the mountains, be prepared for wilderness and carry the 10 Essentials (wiki or Google it). Also see the USFS web site at www.fs.fed.us/conf/ for current info and trail conditions. The law of the forest is "leave no trace." See www.LNT.org for info. Please pack in all you will need and pack out all your trash. Use good judgement when biking, and do not exceed your capabilites, level of fitness or knowledge of the area. Wear a brightly colored vest, and stay constantly aware of traffic behind and in front of you, and ride single file, especially if you are biking with kids.
