NEW JERSEY - Help Save Access to New Jersey State Parks and Forests

Dear BRC Members and supporters in New Jersey,

We got word from both BRC's President, John Parrinello (JP) (who hails from New Jersey) -- and also the East Coast Enduro Association (ECEA) -- on an unfortunate and unfair recent shift in policy by New Jersey State Parks & Forests that threatens to end the historic use of existing trails. This policy threatens the survival of a sport that contributes to the economies of New Jersey's small towns and communities.

Left unchecked, these policies will end the long history of enduros in the state and prevent New Jersey from benefiting from the economic contributions that come as a result.

John said that the ECEA has been working with our national partners, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), on an Action Alert and letter generator. Just follow the "Take Action" option to send a pre-written email directly to the governor. 

As JP says, it is important that BRC make sure all users who ride in New Jersey know about and are engaged in this and all OHV issues. If you live in New Jersey, please take action today!

As always, call or email if you have any questions or comments.

CALIFORNIA - Help Preserve OHV Use On The Six Rivers National Forest
The Six Rivers National Forest in Northern California has a new Forest Supervisor, Merv George. Merv and his family are from the area and I believe it is important for OHV recreationists from across this county who have visited or want to visit this part of California to let him know that you value continued access to historic motorized roads and trails. This part of the state is also home to a number of hard-core anti-access groups who most certainly will be making demands on his office to close roads and trails
