Ride Reno 200

SPARKS, NV (August 19) -- The Twentieth Annual "Ride Reno 200" Dual-Sport Ride, presented by the Dust Devils Motorcycle Club, is set to shake up Sparks, Nevada on September 17th and 18th, 2011. You do NOT want to miss this one.

The Dust Devils Motorcycle Club is proud to host another exciting, AMA sanctioned, Dual Sport ride through Nevada's high desert and California's most scenic terrain in and around the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Come join the fun for 2 days and 200+ fun-filled miles of the best Dual Sport riding you're likely to encounter anywhere!

"I have been riding the Reno Ride 200 for eight years," said Gary Lambert of the Dust Devils Motorcycle Club.  "It has always been a great scenic ride, with fall colors and cooler weather this year the Reno Air races will put it over the top!"

The fun starts on Saturday with yet another epic ride through the forest with lots of easy roads plus some challenging single track.

Does the fun for the day stop there? No. Saturday night features a chance to help protect access to your favorite trails while enjoying a spectacular line-up of fine culinary treats prepared by the famous chefs at John Ascuaga's Nugget Resort and Casino. The "Save the Trails Banquet" will raise sorely needed funds to support the BlueRibbon Coalition in its vital mission of preserving access to public lands. You can buy lots of raffle tickets to win your share of thousands of dollars of great gear and prizes at the Dust Devil's famous "pick a winner" charity raffle, with items generously donated by our sponsors. Banquet tickets for non-riders are $50.

Sunday's new route will take you within excellent viewing distance of the National Championship Reno Air Races, where you can watch the "Unlimited" class, which boasts some planes with 4,000 hp traveling over 500 mph less than 200 ft. off the deck! There will also be F-22 Raptor and Aerobatic performances.

(Please note that this is a non-competitive, self-guided tour on designated routes using roll charts and GPS tracks provided by DDMC. As always, a portion of the proceeds will be given to protect/improve access to the public trails and to local charities.)

This year we are setting up a special Sunday-only Geocache/Poker Run specially for jeeps and heavier "adventure" bikes. Participants will be suppied with GPS tracks and coordinates to all the stashes. The cost will be $40 and includes a year's membership in the BlueRibbon Coalition (or $70 for both the Banquet and Poker Run).

This event is going to be a rip-roaring time, so don't miss it! Jump into the fun and support your recreational access to public trails at the same time (you really CAN have your cake and eat it, too!).

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (April 4, 2014) - Recreational visitors observing a fine flaky substance this morning at the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA) will be pleased to hear it is not snow but judicial manna. Barely a month following argument, U.S. District Judge Susan Illston of the U.S. Northern District Court of California yesterday issued a long-awaited decision on the 2013 ISDRA management plan, ruling almost entirely on the side of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S.
