It is a primetime to step up and make it be know that the ADV members are willing to assist in these situations.
If the OCSD, RCSD and USFS know that they could have a group of riders who can assist in a moments notice to help find lost folks.
We would have a big impact public opinion on keeping riding trails open.
I concur completely! This is partly the blame of all the communities and public agencies that use,maintain,patrol or,profit in the Cleveland National Forest. Many many knowledgable people and resources were available to avert this tragedy. Better COMMUNICATION AND MUTUAL RESPECT is what is needed between hikers, mountain bike riders, equestrians, local authorities, motorcyclists and others.
