Day 3, dawns with clear blue skies and the rain from yesterday's brief storms promises to make today's riding simply awesome. But before heading out for the day, the riders gathered at the morning's learning session to explore, in-depth some of the many formal land use "processes" that the TPA regularly engages in to ensure motorized trail riding will have places to ride and recreate both today and into the future. Dirt riders that have been riding even for a short while have seen a loss of riding opportunities and pressure to close even more. However, the TPA through its use of specialized consultants and attorneys continues to work diligently to keep places to ride open and available. This morning riders learned some of the basics of land use advocacy and the details of the effort it takes to fight for your right to ride. Currently the TPA is focusing their efforts and resources on threats to 4 major riding areas, across Colorado.
