I don't know how late I am on this but I've been seeing speed limit signs posted on the Santa Ana River Trail, setting the speed at 10 MPH. The Santa Ana River Trail's website (http://www.trailsafetypatrol.com/index.html) shows a sample of these signs and comments:
"The 10 MPH speed limit eliminates most bicycle groups from the SART as it is very difficult to maintain this low speed."
Now, I'm not sure how anyone expects to enforce this but, seriously, why would you want to eliminate cycling groups from a trail ideal for cycling. I mean, last I heard cycling was a good thing we wanted to encourage. As for eliminating most groups, I know beginning riders who keep up a speed of 12 MPH, so I'm sure that limit is just way too low.
Anyway, I thought I'd post this and see what other riders on the SART think. Good thing? Bad thing? Laughable?
