Not a sign per se. This was taken in Sept. '06 on Maui in Hana. As far as I can tell, it was the most expensive place for gas on the island, which was relatively expensive in itself. At the time, I believe gas was somewhere in the 2.50-2.75 area back home in DC.

I like how it has a road bike - like it is just banning them and not mountain bikes.

Grindstone Creek, Smokey Hollow, Waterdown, Ontario. Used to have a couple of mills and the valley filled with steam and smoke - all gone now, just a small park and the river.
