Who doesn’t love exploring the great outdoors, taking the road less traveled, the beaten path? All of us here at BDS Suspension love spending free time off-road whether its on a local trail, cruising the sand dunes, or exploring the U.P. and camping along the way.
With Earth Day just around the corner once again, its important to remember we need to do our part to help out. Finding time to clean up your local trail, getting involved with organizations like TreadLightly! and doing your part to 4wheel responsibly will help keep trails open and in great shape for generations to come.
Many ORV areas around the country are under attack, however. Government and private groups are trying to limit land access for off-road vehicles. Areas like Paragon Adventure Park in Pennsylvania and Tellico Trail System in North Carolina have been forced to close in recent years and countless others across the country had met similar opposition. Johnson Valley ORV Area, home to the hugely popular King of the Hammers race in Southern California is currently under siege from government land expansion for a nearby Marine base. Organizations like BlueRibbon Coalition help fight the battle to keep public access land open to the public for recreational use. They can use your support to help keep trails open and public land available to all. For more information on current initiative and how you can get involved this Earth Day and throughout the year, talk to your local off-road club and check out:
