The 4th Annual Colorado 600 – Single Track Awareness and the ColoradoTPA

The 4th Annual Colorado 600 is prepped and has headed out fora five day ride and trail symposium through the mountains of southwestern Colorado.  Each day riders learn about what is facing trail riding enthusiasts and the issues facing OHV trails in Colorado and Utah.  Riders are able choose the option of single track, dual-sport or adventure trails based on what they are in the mood for.  Sign in opened at 9:00am yesterday, Saturday, Sept 7th in South Fork, Colorado. Sunday thru Wednesday there will be two routes per day so both types of riders may enjoy the local history and Trail Awareness Seminar and alternate routes will be posted for the more aggressive riders in both types.

All proceeds from the ride will go to support the Colorado Trails Preservation Alliance, a Colorado 501c3 non-profit. The newly-formed TPA is focused on preserving single-track trails for motorized riding. For more information: ColoradoTPA.org  or  Colorado600.org. The  Trails Preservation Alliance is the successor to the Colorado 500 Legal Defense Fund (C500 LDF).  After seven years of operation, the LDF became a 501c3 organization, totally staffed and controlled by volunteers.  The newly-formed TPA is focused on preserving motorized, single-track trail riding.  This does not mean that the TPA will ignore other forms of off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation.  All forms of OHV recreation—ATV’s, 4WD’s, snowmobiles—will be supported by the TPA.   However, its primary goal is to preserve single-track trail riding.

The TPA will act as an advocate of the sport and take the necessary action to insure that the USFS and BLM allocate to trail riding a fair and equitable percentage of access to public lands. Stay tuned as we hear more about the ride, the issues discussed and some of the great times everyone is having!
