  1. Urge Your State Representative to Oppose Raid of OHV Fund The House has introduced its version of the 2018 New Mexico state budget (HB 131) which includes a provision to take $85,000 from the OHV Trail Safety Fund. Our friends at the New Mexico OHV Alliance have indicated that this $85,000 represents the last of the Fund's money. While the Legislature has been successful in the past at raiding the Fund for other priorities, it is still important to make your voices heard and express opposition. The Trail Safety Fund is fully funded by OHV registration and user fees. It is set up under a "user-pay, user-benefit" framework to be used primarily for OHV law enforcement, education and training, information system development and management, resource monitoring and protection, trail building, maintenance and restoration, and the implementation of other provisions of the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Act (enacted in 2005). This is tantamount to placing an additional tax on OHV users that provides no benefit to those who pay. Please urge your Representative to oppose this depletion of the Trail Safety Fund! Take Action! Send an email to urge your State Representative to oppose this provision and restore dedicated funding to the Trail Safety Fund! http://www.arra-access.com/action/

  3. I have watched Washington State change over the years and being at a place in my life where all I want to do is ride trails, I am considering leaving Washington State. Where would you move to if you were set up in life and all you had to do was to enjoy the next 30 years riding trails? Your help is greatly appreciated. I have 3 places in mind, what say you guys? Where would you go? My ideal riding is technical single track. For instance I love little Naches, Tahuya obviously and Shelton areas. Thanks everyone who chimes in, much appreciated. PS. Pics are a huge bonus.
  4. I am a novice rider looking for people to ride with. I live in Durango but have been riding in Aztec and Farmington. I'm not a novice to offroad, I desert race quads and mountain bike, but this motorcycle thing is a whole different ball of wax. I just got a CRF250X to trailride, love it, but am hesitant to explore much on my own. Anybody else slow wanna ride?

    newmexico The Aztec MX track is back

    A couple guys formed an LLC and negotiated with the city of Aztec and now have a contract for next year to run the track after being down for several years. The contract actually starts next month, but they are having a practice day on the newly groomed track 10/27-28. $20 for one day, $35 for 2 days. Finally, MX back on a really nice track (when it is groomed). They are in the process of figuring out sanctioning and stuff like that. The funds from the practice day are going to help with that.

    newmexico Moving to ABQ/rio rancho

    Hey y'all, Ill being moving to ABQ area in June and I have a couple of questions. Ive been on rider planet and have seen the areas to ride. Any other hidden gems of places to ride? I enjoy Mx the most and then desert riding. Second, I will be looking to buy another bike when I get there but have notice craigslist is dead, where do y'all look for bikes for sale? Facebook? Last, I need people to ride with! Also, what are yalls thoughts on Farmington? I have a great job offer up there but haven't been. Dave
  17. Anything rideable in the Farmington area? Still a lot of snow on the ground up here in Durango. Thinking maybe Dunes as it's the furthest south.
  18. The Glade Run Recreation Area, aka Chokecherry Canyon is a popular network of trails for dirt bikes and mountain bikes. There is a bunch of world class single track that is mostly designated for both kinds of 2 wheel vehicles. We ride there fairly often, but hadn't been there in probably about 5 or 6 weeks. My son and I went for a nice 25 mile loop this past Sunday and we were appalled at the condition of some of the trails. Trails that are signed mountain bike or dirt bike, not gated, have been blown out by SxSs and quads to the point that in some parts they are like a highway, these were formerly, that is recently, single track. It is becoming a mess. The next day I called the BLM and talked to one of the BLM Rangers. He said he is well aware of the problem, in fact a friend of mine that was out there the same day ran into him and he was trying to chase down a couple of SxSs that had been tearing single track up. But here's where I want your attention. He also said the real big problem he is having is dirt bikers cutting new illegal single track. If we want to keep our access to this wonderful area we better start not only policing the idiots on 4 wheel vehicles, we need to police ourselves. If anyone here knows anyone that is tearing single track up on a SxS or quad, please report them. AND, if you know any dirt bikers that are illegally cutting trails, please report them also. We are going to lose a lot of that area if we don't start acting responsibly. Administration has been historically very sympathetic to the mountain bike crowd, not us.

    newmexico At war with ourselves

    Many of you in the SW are familiar with WEBE Racing hare scramble series. They have races around northern NM and southern UT and CO. I've always supported their efforts, my sons have raced in many of their events. But, now I really have to withdraw any support I have. They open the season at the Dunes Recreation area west of Farmington, NM, a huge sandpit of a BLM rec area that is virtually empty of vegetation and single track trails. A time or 2 in the past they have also had a race later in the season on the old MX track and some of the trails around it near Aztec. Those trails are pretty much blown out by SxSs and just plain heavy use. So, instead of racing there again where there isn't a whole lot damage to be done they picked a lightly used area of BLM land outside Farmington near the Safety City LEO training facility. There is a lot of very nice and narrow high desert ST there, and I can guarantee you that not only is it going to get blown out, but it will get more use in the future. This, to me, is a tragedy in the making. It seems like all the nice trails are getting destroyed around here by idiots in SxS, Quads, or dirt bikers that don't respect what we have. I emailed WEBE with my concerns as a local, but days later still no response. I'm upset that the BLM even permitted them for that area. Not much can be done short of going to court and getting an injunction, and that is way beyond my financial means. BTW, I am no where near the only one in this area that feels this way.
  20. NEW MEXICO - Santa Fe NF Announces Fall 2018 Forest Plan Revision Open House Dates Dear Action Alert Subscriber, The Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) will continue to host Open Houses to give the public the opportunity to talk with Forest Service specialists about the Forest Plan under revision. There will be no presentation or agenda prepared for the Open Houses. They are instead an informal opportunity for you to ask questions and for the Forest Service to share information and pre-draft material about the revision of the Forest Plan, the comprehensive document that will guide management of all forest resources for 10 to 15 years. Open Houses are good opportunities to get a preview of documents as they are developed and prior to their release and formal comment period. This is a chance to share the progress made since the public meetings on Forest Plan Alternatives and Management Areas in March 2017. In previous Open Houses table topics focused on resource areas, but the upcoming Open Houses will focus on planning topics including Alternatives, Geographic Areas, Management Areas, Monitoring, Wilderness, and Wild and Scenic Rivers. Forest Plan and District specialists will be available to answer questions on resource areas or Forest Planning more generally. Below is the Open House schedule for fall 2018: Tuesday, August 21st (2:30-5:30pm) - Walatowa Visitor Center, 7413 NM-4, Jemez Pueblo, NM 87024 Tuesday, September 11th (2:30-5:30pm) - Sandoval County Fairgrounds, 37 Rodeo Rd, Cuba, NM 87013 Thursday, September 27th (2:30-5:30pm) - Santa Fe National Forest, 11 Forest Lane, Santa Fe, NM 87508 Wednesday, October 10th (2:30-5:30pm) - Rio Arriba Cooperative Extension Office (Conference Room), State Road 554 House #122-A, Abiquiu, NM 87510 Thursday, October 11th (2:30-5:30pm) - White Rock Fire Station #3 (Training Room), 129 NM-4, White Rock, NM 87544 Wednesday, November 14th (12-3pm) Technical Meeting - Santa Fe National Forest, 11 Forest Lane, Santa Fe, NM 87508 Thursday, November 15th (2:30-5:30pm) North Domingo Baca Multigenerational Center (Classroom 5), 7521 Carmel Ave. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113 Monday, December 10th (2:30-5:30pm) New Mexico Highlands University (TEC 205, #30 on Campus Map), 1031 11th Street, Las Vegas, NM 87701 Below is the format for all of our Open Houses: * You can arrive any time, stay for as little or long as you like, and can circulate among Forest Service specialists discussing various topics. * Open Houses are not part of a comment period so we will not be recording public comments, but specialists may take informal notes during conversations. * We will bring our current work to share with you and answer your questions, but we will be reviewing pre-draft material which will not be made available to the public either as a handout or on our website. This is an informal, intermediary step. We will bring handouts from previous public meetings, which are available on our website, and there will be opportunities later for public comment on draft work products. If you have questions please call 505-438-5442, email santafeforestplan@fs.fed.us, or mail: Forest Plan Revision, Santa Fe National Forest, 11 Forest Lane, Santa Fe, NM 87508.

    newmexico Riding in Southern New Mexico

    Hey Guys, I am going to visit my daughter in Texas. Driving the toy hauler from Arizona and have a couple of weeks. Any suggestions on some fun off road riding in Southern New Mexico? Better yet, anyone interested in doing some riding. I will be coming through beginning of February. Ihave a plated KTM500. A level rider. Not bringing the MX bike,so off road only. Cheers!
  24. Interesting, there will now be an "official" way to go from there to there. There have always been routes anyway. A local landscaping company is building the trails . It usually doesn't turn out well when idiots in government get involved that know nothing about anything, but think they know everything. I am holding my breath to see how this turns out. https://www.daily-times.com/story/news/local/farmington/2018/11/30/future-trails-connect-lake-glade-run-recreation-area/2163920002/ FARMINGTON — Farmington Lake users soon will have the opportunity to access the Glade Run Recreation Area from the Lake via mountain bike and off-highway vehicle trails. The City Council has awarded a contract for less than $50,000 to a local landscaping company to build the trails, which will be located near the fishing dock at Farmington Lake. The council awarded the contract during its Tuesday evening meeting, which can be viewed online at fmtn.org. The trails will provide people access to a larger trails system in the Glade Run Recreation Area. “This will be a connector that you could theoretically park at Lake Farmington, load up your OHV or your mountain bike, and you could take a day ride and you could go to the Brown Springs and camp for the night and come back,” Cory Styron, the city's Outdoor Recreation Industry Initiative director, said during the meeting. As Farmington works to build the trails from the lake, San Juan County and the federal Bureau of Land Management have teamed up for trails development in Glade Run. Styron described building the trail as an important moment in the city’s partnership with the BLM. “We’ve come together to make this the outdoor capital of the world,” he said. The City Council unanimously supported the trails development. “I think this is pretty exciting,” said Councilor Sean Sharer. “I like seeing these things coming up and how we can actually start finishing up some of these projects we’ve thought about for a long time.”
