Questions: Rides and events
1. What does the ATV Club Bylaws say about ATV Club rides?
The ATV Club Bylaws designate Club Rides for each third Saturday after the Club meeting. These monthly rides may be changed as determined by the Trail Boss. The Club recently voted to do another monthly ride on the first Saturday, when possible. There has been many added rides to pre-ride some of the Rally rides.
Complaints of the ride destinations and/or changes made or ride experiences, speed, trail conditions, et el., should be directed to the ATV Club.
2. Riders rules.
Each person is responsible to make sure that the following rider is aware of all turns. Stop and make sure that the following rider knows where you are going. (Look for a hand wave and respond likewise). If the rider following you does not appear, stop and wait, eventually the entire group will stop. Do not follow too close and moderate your speeds and distances. Please keep pace with the rider ahead of you so as not to slow down the following riders. If you are unsure of your ability ‘stop’ and ask for assistance. For larger groups many guides will use the drop system. If you are not aware of how this procedure works ask the guide.
3. Does the ATV Club conduct Social Events?
Yes, because of member interest, Campouts, rides, Vehicle/ATV tours, parades, and the annual holiday dinner are scheduled in addition to the third Saturday of the month additional day rides may be scheduled. These events are approved by the membership and presented at Club meetings. Participation is optional, times are subject to change.
4. How does the Club make notifications of rides?
ATV Club rides, campouts and events are posted in a yearly schedule sent out via our up- dated, G-Mail notifications and also posted on the ATV Club website, look for reminders or updates on the ATV Club Rides G-Mail, email address list. Updated change notices posted one week before the event if possible if there is inclement weather or other factors that could cause an event cancellation. The event schedule will be posted on the ATV Club Website.
5. Does my ATV need to be "street-legal" to participate in a club ride?
Many areas of our rides do not require ATVs to be street legal. However, the enforcement of related laws tends to be very inconsistent. Riders who choose not to license their ATV for use on public roads must recognize that participating in a club ride will be done at their own risk. The rider is solely responsible for any resulting citations. Please note that some trails may restrict OHV’s wider than 50 or 60 inches. Arizona now required OHV’s to have the Arizona OHV sticker ($30 per machine) if you are an out of state OHV. The Club and Trail Boss cannot be responsible if you choose to ride a wider OHV’s and are restricted from certain trails, it is your responsibility to know of these restrictions.
6. Does the ATV Club stage and convoy to the Campouts?
No, usually the Camp-out location is posted, and directions given to the members. It is important that you acknowledge your intention to participate in a Club Campout. There are other requirements such as furnishing firewood, control of pets, etc.
7. What are the themed social events all about?
Often at campouts there will be desert socials, or shared pot luck dinners arranged. Participation is optional.
