Focus on trail clearing
ATVBC would like to welcome the Vanderhoof Offroaders Club, a group of enthusiastic ATV and SxS riders who are eager to recover existing trail systems in the Vanderhoof area.
Many popular trails have suffered from years of neglect, with beetle killed trees blocking trails from being accessed by all users (walkers, mountain bikers and quadders).
While individuals and small groups have worked hard to maintain access, it is time for a more sustainable initiative and Vanderhoof Offroaders Club President Russell Lenny and Vice-President Stephan Young are excited to see riders willing to sign up and help.
Join the Vanderhoof Offroaders Club
All ATV and SxS members from Vanderhoof and the surrounding communities are welcome to join ATVBC and the Vanderhoof Offroaders Club. Membership benefits include insurance savings that usually cover or exceed the cost of club membership, discounts at hotels, and on riding related products.
A group of Vanderhoof riders met to form the club and discussed early initiatives. Mapping trails and noting where work needs to be done is something all riders can contribute to. Russ asks riders to use the free Wikiloc app, and instructions for use were shared on the local ATV Facebook group Vanderhoof & Area Off Road Riders. Note that the Facebook group consists of riders from across North-Central and North-West BC, not all of whom are Vanderhoof Offroaders Club members.
The Club has already been in touch with the Nechako Valley Search and Rescue Association, who are interested in any trail maps that are developed.
With the club just forming, Russell has asked prospective members what they would like the club activities to look like. In addition to rides, trail clearing and mapping, responses include Poker Rides, family events, and water identification courses.
