After first consulting the map I carried in my pocket and memorizing the trails I wanted to ride, I bounded through the forest on my trusted mountain rig. I wound my way among the rocks and roots, pumped my brakes steadily on winding hairpin turns, navigated a bevy of bog bridges and thoroughly enjoyed the velvety smooth singletrack on a wooded carpet of pine needles. Never once did I take my map out. Not once did I wonder where I was. And when my odometer went on strike, I didn't worry about the mileage. That's because I read the signs.

The valley's mountain biking community is buzzing about the 50 new signs and 30 new signposts installed in the the White Mountain National Forest's Moat trail network recently during a collaboration between the forest the White Mountains chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association.
