Toronto ON – November 23, 2018 – Land access is a growing concern for off-road riders. The back country of Canada has received an influx of visitors trying to escape the stress of city life. Competing activities may seek to use the same areas. Passionate environmental groups may seek to limit recreational activities altogether. The only way to achieve a balance with nature and the other users is for all to practice environmentally sustainable habits and respect each other’s rights.
The Canadian Off-Highway Vehicle Distributors Council (COHV) has created a series of videos to promote environmentally responsible riding practices. The first of the videos titled “Wheels & Water Don’t Mix” relates to minimizing contact with active bodies of water. The motorized off-road riding community is an awesome group of volunteers that have established environmentally sustainable trails across the country. It is important to all riders to be a responsible rider.
