They were out in Stevens Canyon. The ranger was talking to a rider when I went by.
I was flying down Stevens Canyon trail friday mid-morning, when lo and behold as I am rounding a long sweeping turn, an MROSD truck comes cruising UP the same trail. I locked up the brakes, swerved to the right, and passed him on what was fortunately a grassy shoulder. I don't even think he saw me until I was almost past his driver side window. No harm, no foul... I didn't stop, he didn't stop, and I continued blasting down to the Grizzly Flats turn off (about a mile further down the trail).

Moral of the story... radar is not the only danger!

you guys keep misspelling this. It's not radar, it revenue generator.

yup. rangers spotted thursday with heat gun in hand on canyon trail. Just after the 1.3 mi marker going down they set up a speed trap at the bottom of the fast section and were standing right on the lip of the jump. Also a ranger was walking further down the trail to stop speeders who decide to run after being seen. Luckily I witnessed this while climbing up.
