If you need warning signs, you should not be riding that kind of trail.

You just weren't riding fast enough ;)

Edit: I just looked at pictures of Downieville. Yes, its downhill but it looks more like a downhill cross country trail. The video showed quite a different type of trail IMO.

looks fun to me,

asphalt scares me more, it's gotten to the point if I want to ride on asphalt I do it at 4am to avoid cars

Today on my ride to work a man cut across two lanes of traffic in a last ditch effort to get his morning Dunkin'. Unfortunately I was riding in the bike lane and he didn't bother to check past the row of stopped cars he was cutting through. I think he figured it out when my outstretched foot stopped me against his door as I tried to lessen the impact. Cars come out of nowhere, that trail didn't move on them they just weren't following it.

True, but there's nothing that really gets the adrenaline flowing like riding in traffic. Used to love doing that through the financial district in Boston.

you must have a death wish. I can't even drive in boston much less ride a bike.

I liked riding my bmx because I could easily hop curbs and get out of danger quick. My 26er is a little tall for me to fully clear a curb.

Somebody cut out the whole reason she freaked out - but in order to see it you have to see the background video:
