About the Quad Riders ATV Association of British Columbia (ATVBC)
The Quad Riders ATV Association of British Columbia (ATVBC) was formed in 2001 to provide leadership in off-road vehicle (ORV) use. ATVBC promotes safe and responsible, environmentally sustainable use of ORVs and advocates for publicly accessible, mixed use trails across British Columbia.
ATVBC sits on provincial committees and working groups to lobby for legislative developments which will increase riding opportunities with a focus on safe and responsible use, educating riders on proper riding techniques, safety, gear, trail etiquette, and current legislation to ensure they are riding legally, as well as provide basic awareness about recreating in the backcountry.
ATVBC provides its 40+ member clubs with grant funding for trail maintenance and development projects for the benefit of all trail users, hosts educational meetings and public outreach events, develops educational tools and safety messaging, liaises with rural communities and local government to facilitate ORV tourism by improving access to trail networks, public roads and road crossings with long term goal of establishing a quality destination riding experience as a viable tourism product for our rural communities, creating local jobs and improved economy.
