More snowmobile trails could close if ATVers do not respect land owners, When the snowmobile season is over and the gates and fences go up to close off the trails that go over private land some atvers think its ok to go ride on those trails in the summer and do not understand the problems this cause for the snowmobile clubs. I own an atv and I ride around my town, I know how fun it is to ride and to discover new places to ride, find new trails road to ride... but we need to be smart and respect land owners, the people that are doing these acts are giving ALL Atvers a BAD Name.
Our ATV club in Dubreuilville like many other clubs in Ontario have codes of ethics, we have rules we go by, we give example and help the Town with problems with ATVs and we work hard fixing the problems... but there is always a few bad ones that break the rules and cause troubles for the rest and make us look bad.
In Sudbury they are having this problem, they have a hard time keeping the ATvers out of the private that the trails go over, if this continue to go on the club will loose trails in those areas. Please read and share the news article in the Northern Life news paper from the Sudbury area.
