It just depends upon what you will be riding, if you will need a sticker. If the route is designated as OHV, then you need a sticker. If someone is on a GSA or SuperT, and you are riding pavement and county roads/Forest Service roads, you don't need a sticker.

Stickers will be available at Red Mountain for $25.50.

The Stickers are another way of supporting the sport that we know and love. It is a funding source for trails and trail maintenance in the state, AND perhaps most importantly, a small portion of the fee for the sticker goes to Search and Rescue "Insurance". If the local Search and Rescue organization is mobilized to come find/get you out, the associated costs of that effort are covered by the State.

Here is a description taken from a State Web site:
"The fund reimburses on actual operating expenses incurred by local governments and
teams during search and rescue missions. Those expenses include reasonable costs
incidental to SAR activities such as: fuel, repair and rental of motor vehicles, fixed-wing
aircraft, helicopters (when used for search and/or rescue not medical evacuation),
snowmobiles, boats, horses, generators and any other equipment necessary or
appropriate for conducting SAR activities; reimbursement of mileage at the appropriate
state rate; meals and room rental for personnel and any other similar expenses."

$18.50 of each $25.50 goes back to the OHV fund.....where grants are awarded for trail maintenance. Local clubs apply for the grants and then do the work.....on a volunteer basis. The money usually provides materials and equipment, sometimes labor.

Makes our trails awesome!


But yes.....you buy a sticker and it is a cheap insurance policy against a potential, very expensive extraction bill, if you need assistance.

Remember RMAR is a fund raising event and I would say don't just look at us as this great deal of an event that only cost $60. It be nice to see 200 riders whether they ride trails or stick to graded dirt roads or slab it fork out $25.25 for the stickers. Imagine if 200 riders did that at our event that is $5,050 extra raised going straight to trail maintenance.

If I remember correct Jim at Red Mountain where we are located has stickers to sell. I think everyone that shows up should be in a mood to open their pockets a little. Seriously $25.25 is nothing no matter how you feel about the OHV stickers. Remember our events also show the Town and Government official's our events are serious in trying to KEEP our trails open...so an influx in stickers being bought during one of our events says "hey this group gave back beyond what they already pledged to do".

So stop being CHEAP and buy the sticker. By the way Colorado is cracking down on vehicle son 50" or smaller trails (ATV to Single track). So $25.25 for a sticker where you are happy when buying it or being stopped and ticketed for $75 for not having it and making you mad.

Again BUY THE STICKER

Everyone remember that the San Juan 500 is on the front end of the week.......

We only have a few slots left......





Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders is proud to announce, new for 2013, the San Juan 500. The SJ500 is a point-to-point ride ending in Silverton, CO, just in time to join the RMAR Rendezvous. Both events will occur on the same week, allowing riders to participate in both, one after the other.

This is a three day / three night smaller version of the CAM 1000, but is open to the mid-weight adventure bikes in the 650-990cc class, as well as smaller, street-legal dual-sports. We’ll carry our gear and camp in high-country campgrounds. No sag wagon on this ride.


If you are interested in participating and would like more information, email Mac.

July 22-25, 2013 – San Juan 500:

Event: 2013 RMAR San Juan 500
Location: Southwest, Colorado
Dates: July 22-25, 2013
Base camp: Red Mountain RV, Silverton, CO
Fundraising: This event will help support groups preserving our sport in SW Colorado
Event Leader: Matt McCabe, Operations Director and VP of RMAR (Mac on ADV)


Route: 3.5 Days (3 nights) of 500+ Miles of Primarily Off-Pavement Riding, Point to Point, around southwestern Colorado. We're starting and ending in Silverton, Colorado, just in time to start the 2013
RMAR Rendezvous.

Anyone have a spare bed available in a camping cabin or RV? I'd gladly pay my fair share. It's looking like my schedule may be fairly clear for July, and I'd really like to ride some of the 4x4 trails in the area that I never did in my 4x4.
