Totally agree with Mongwolf, I feel the same way that they need to get a legitimate map program if the site hopes to compete.  Love the website otherwise!

replied to What bike rack do you use?
 
Thule pro 2xt tray hitch rack.  Bought it almost new / used for about half price.  Built like a tank, love the integrated cable locks that deter/slow opportunists thieves when I stop...

Mine stay in my basement.  When on the car rack while traveling I chain them with a Kryptonite Fuhgettaboutit chain and lock.  All you can really do is make sure they are...

mudsoldier is right! Anybody that started riding trails after he did should stop right now. Why on earth would we want new people getting involved in our sport, that would be sheer madness!
