    Ironically, the January 2010 meeting also included a brief presentation on wayfinding (see page 24 and 25).

    Those are pretty signs and I'd take them, but still too small for wayfinding for a moving cyclist.

    A "bike tourer" slows down to read the signs.

    And this is why carbon rim brakes are bad!

    Using my own strava ride titles against me.... ouch!

    Truthfully, I'm not what I consider to be fast on the trails. I'm usually cruising along at 14 to 15 if there's no trail traffic. I think the ART has the best signs in the area and they're hard for me to read in passing. In the case of the ART, there are lots of really awesome things that those signs are pointing to that I would have likely checked out earlier if there was a larger sign as I passed.

    I think a good example of sign size is the Virginia Capital Trail:

    Sign with trail instructions
    Mile Marker Sign

    There is now a Wayne F Anderson Strava Segment going westbound.

    For those curious, here is the segment: https://www.strava.com/segments/15044161

    This segment is heading westbound. Unless someone beats me to it, I'll look through my rides to find one that captures going eastbound and create a segment too.
