I would just like to say to all who have helped to open and keep routes open, thanks for all your hard work and persistance. Without people out there within the buracracy none of this would happen. I know the BRC and other organizations help ,but you have to have people in the system that are willing to push things through. Thanks again.

cloud9: thank you for the headsup on this area!

What's the altitude of this area? is it snowbound in winter or is it rideable year round?

cheers,
Ed

Hey Ed, It ranges from about 4500ft to near 8000ft. It connects with the Unc which tops out at just over 9000ft. Winters will be snowed out unless we can really get this global warming thing fired up and moving. In the lower canyons there is not that much riding but is probably open. So the GPS'd area I have won't really be a winter replacement for Moab. But maybe by directing interest in this area FFs will start finding good riding areas around Naturita, Dove Creek, or Monticello... who knows. But it's a start.

Go IB!

There is an article in this month's Blue Ribbon Magazine about trail maps of the Grand Mesa OHV trails made by the Western Slope ATV Association.It says they are free at dealers, Parks , or download from their site. I don't know if these are around the Gateway area or not.

A little bit of them are. The OHV club mapped out the Grand Mesa- far from Gateway, and the Uncompahgre which is close to / next to Gateway.

Cloud9, thanks for explaining AANs to me.
Is this proper usage?

Here is a simple solution, tell us where the BLM employees live, give us their names. ( As a private citizen, gossip and speech is permitted, only the Government restricts this info.)
Then we can ride in a none threatening manner on completely street legal bikes constantly in front of their homes all hours of the night and day. We can ride on public roads all we want, don't make eye contact or say anything to them.
If we can't ride our bikes on the trails without harassment then we have to use the public roads available to us. So what if they are in front of the BLMs homes.
Should ride in pairs or more so their is a witness to the LEO harassment. Videos would also help in the defense in the traffic courts.
Oh just a thought.
