Dirt Rider magazine got a first-hand look at the Colorado 600, which is an event and motorcycle trail ride that attempts to raise awareness on how to save the sport of motorcycle trail riding. “The Colorado 600 is all about saving our sport one case at a time. And yes, we mean ‘case’ literally, because all of your support and donations goes to organizations that are trying to save our sport. It’s expensive to respond to all the travel actions of the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, and to go up against groups that want our trails shut down. If you’d like to share single track, or any other off-roading locations with the youngsters who are the future of our sport, then we suggest you do it now before the trails as you know them become illegal, overgrown, and gone forever–or you can get active and hook up with a solid motorcycle club to make a difference. With that said, if there doesn’t seem to be a club worth putting your valuable time and money into, then it’s not a bad idea to start one of your own. Or light a fire under theirs…” To read more about the event, click here.
