      Tread Lightly! "RIDE ON Utah"

      Tread Lightly! celebrated the second anniversary of the “RIDE ON Utah” campaign on National Public Lands Day this past Saturday, Sept. 27. Working closely with campaign partners, Tread Lightly! has worked to keep nearly 4,000 miles of motorized trails (across 1.8 million acres) in Utah open to the public.

      The RIDE ON Utah campaign was officially launched in 2012 – in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Utah’s Division of State Parks and Recreation, Division of Wildlife Resources, Utah’s School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration, and Tread Lightly! – to communicate consistent messaging across boundaries promoting ethical and legal use of motorized vehicles on public lands.

        Two Up ATVs

        The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is gathering information from the public regarding passengers on ATVs.

        Specifically, the CPSC has issued a Request for Information (RFI) on the matter, seeing information on the prevalence of carrying passengers on ATVs and the feasibility of a performance requirement that would prevent passengers from being carried on ATVs.

          Approximately 25 riders and supporters were on hand Saturday to celebrate the reopening of phase one of the Rattlesnake Bay OHV Trails in Mississippi’s DeSoto National Forest, according to a report from the American Motorcyclist Association.

          Prior to Satorday’s reopening, these trails had been “temporarily” closed for more than 11 years. The Friends of Rattlesnake Bay off-highway-vehicle group joined U.S. Forest Service officials for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 9.5-mile section of trails.
