Bikers love Rabbit Hash and no wonder! All roads leading to the General Store were made for motorcycles... The scenery is amazing, the curvey roads make for an interesting ride, and the destination offers refreshment and a chance to hang out with other bike enthusiasts.
As you can see in the photo above, there are literally hundreds of visitors to the Rabbit Hash General Store on any given summer day. This amount of traffic has the potential of becoming an irritant to local residents who are not accustomed to the noise or the crowds. So by observing the simple guidelines below you will help keep Rabbit Hash safe, clean, and peaceful.
1. Don't speed! The speed limit is 15 miles per hour downtown and by the store. Just beyond the General Store area the roads are posted at only 20-25 miles per hour. The roads leading in and out of Rabbit Hash are also very narrow. With kids, dogs, cats, deer, turkey, raccoons, bicycles, tractors, and other vehicles around... Driving at a low speed keeps everyone safe!
2. Try not to rev up your bike on Lower River Rd or Rabbit Hash Hill Rd. We know that many of you have tricked-out and souped up hawgs and the urge to show off your bike is sometimes hard to resist. But please remember that most of the time it's generally quiet around here... And the residents of this community want to live in the boonies just for that reason. So it's no surprise that "bike" noise is the most common complaint heard.
3. Don't litter. Even if it looks like nobody lives along the roads you're traveling, the property belongs to somebody who has to maintain it. Glass bottles are the worst since mowing tractors can run over them, shatter the glass into tiny slivers, and then fling broken pieces all over the place. This includes the road you're driving on! Don't be the cause of flat tires or injuries to barefoot children... Throw your trash in a waste can -- not along the roadside.
We love everyone who visits our small rural community and look forward to another great Spring/Summer season. Your help in preserving our historic town and respecting its residents, will insure a bright future for Rabbit Hash and for everyone who loves it.
