Trail work and our right to ride, we all need to be involved!

Trail Work and our right to ride on our public lands!!
I tough it important to start this thread to help inform the public, primarily anyone who enjoys riding in the dirt in any capacity, from the hard core single track rider to the Adventure bike rider and anyone else who enjoys recreating on our public lands, National Forest, BLM, etc. Also to give recognition to those who have been involved and fighting for our right s for the last several years. I don’t mean for this to become a political rant or a place for complaints but rather a positive exchange of Ideas to help further our goal of keeping our public lands open for ourselves and our family’s recreation and enjoyment. I’m hoping for pictures and stories of trail work days, the efforts of groups and individuals and maybe most importantly contact info for those who would like to be involved in on the ground grass roots efforts. Of course being an AMA member and donating to groups like the Blue Ribbon Coalition and others is a great start and that may be all many individuals can do but where the real battles are fought and won is on the local level by individuals and local clubs fighting for access to their own backyards. So anyway I could go on for a very long time about this but I think everyone gets the Idea.
I’ll start out, for riders in Northern California primarily in the areas of the Plumas and Lassen National Forest to get involved contact:

Ironman Dual Sport

Paradise Ridge Riders MC
Bill Major ---
Bob Van Court ---

Sierra Access Coalition

Here's a couple of shots of members of the Ironman Dual Sport Riders Club, Paradise Ridge Riders and our friends from The Nevada County Woods Riders working to build and maintain sustainable trails in the Lassen and Plumas National Forest

Ummm...why the funky font? How 'bout just regular text?

But yes, get involved!

Here's the latest SOS newsletter, more local to so-Cal, and worth a read:

Any and all help is needed,CA is doing it's level best to make trailriding and dirtbikes a fond memory.

Sierra Access Coalition have a pending lawsuit against the USFS in the Plumas National Forest and they need all the help and donations they can get.

Turns out when the Forestry people got out and made their maps and designated trails accordingly they made many mistakes,this lawsuit points out those mistakes and can get their roadless act designations thrown out.

As for local here in Chico and surrounding towns the Ridgeriders meet at Chico Honda on varying Thu Nights,trail work is ongoing.
Some bikes around at times

I'd be game for it if I could find some to go with in the Kern county area that a noob on a KLR650 can get to.
