OK, I think I've been pushed to the point of breaking.

Can we get a FAQ or some kind of sticky on the right hand side of page with trail info for AZ visitors? The "where should I ride in xxxxx?" questions come up often enough that we should be able to point somebody in that direction for the latest trail info.

My suggestion:

We start a sticky thread that has ONLY ride resources. No commentary, no hijacking. I will use a very, very strong pimp hand to enforce this.

If I can find enough "where to ride" threads in our archives, maybe I can merge a bunch of them together into one big thread and delete the commentary/hijacking that seems to inevitably follow.

Anyway, it's a great idea (even though, yes, it does directly compete with book sales) and I'll do what I can to set it up.

How about a thread of places to buy books and what books to buy? With links to amazon or such of where to buy? That way we will be helping the MTB book industry and our newcomers. Perhaps we could use excperts from some of these books to answer specific questions (and cite it).

Just an idea

All good. How about including a link to the AZ books that are available and always get plugged in such threads?

No worrys Paul B. I picked one up last week at the book store. I do have a question about the "Hawes trail/Mine loop map" Don't know if this is the place to ask though.

And the question is?
The question is: On the Mine loop trail map. What do the black square boxes along the trail line represent? Maybe it is explained somewhere in the book and I havn't found it? Just curious.

Ah!

The circles mean "easy", boxes mean "intermediate" and diamonds mean "hard". I believe I put a black diamond at the sketchy descent on the back of the mine loop, the one where you dogleg back away from the actual mine shaft. Back in the day, that shaft wasn't marked at all and you stood a pretty good chance of coming into that turn a little hot. Hence the warning.

I like that sketchy part of the loop. That is where I get my "perm-a-grin " ! Makes me want to go ride it just thinking of it. Thanks for the explanation Paul B.
