Our new Information Kiosks for the 3 Blind Mice.
Two of our kiosks are ready! These were generously built by Greyback Construction with supplies donated by Stucturlam, Home Hardware, and Interior Roofing. Big thanks to the businesses!
Now we need to decide where the first big one goes. The plan is for it to be just after the Pearly Gate in a location that is impossible to miss.
I have attached photos of 3 (but not all) of the options.
1-just to the left of the gate with only one side visible to up and down riders.
2-just straight and right of the gate with both sides visible to up and down riders
3-straight and left of the gate with both sides visible to up and down riders
We will have an overview map of the Mice, info on PACA and bike shops, trail days, trail etiquette etc..
