Have you seen our Facebook page? Not much going on today but with spring right around the corner the activity will certainly pick up.

Working The Front Gate

Are you interested in becoming a SAER member? Click on the Photo to check out our membership page for information on how to get started.

 

Who knows? – you might get to work the front gate the next time this guy comes to race.

 

We have a Nemadji trail blog. Check it out.

Due to the continued snow and ice we have cancelled the April 7th motocross race at Grantsburg. The remaining races on April 28  & September 22nd still stand. Thanks for your understanding.

I spent another day wandering around the woods of Douglas
County on Sunday, 1-13.  Luckily, the snow cover was even less deep
then it had been on previous trips, although the air was a tad colder
(approx 10 degree F).  This was trip #4.  Kent Goble and Nanette
Chenery helped out on a couple of the earlier trips.

We have completed most of the scouting and have sent this trail
alignment proposal to Douglas County.  It is GPS’d and flagged with
Pink Tape.  It’s 3.7 miles long, which if implemented, will
practically double our singletrack mileage in WI (right now it’s 4 of
singletrack, 1 of combined ATV/bike).  We did our best to make things
sustainable and interesting for the users.  The two road crossings
were placed such that a rider can look both directions and see the a
long ways down the road.

The DNR reported to me this morning that Conservation Officers AND
hunters have reported dirtbikers riding on the trails that are closed
all year except for the Enduro.  These are clearly marked with
“Closed” signs at all access points and so, anyone who uses them must
know that they are taking advantage of the situation and putting our
efforts at risk.

I hate to sound preachy, but it must be obvious that the DNR allows
this activity as a privilege, and they could easily decide that this
should no longer be allowed.  We would then lose some of the trails
that may not be sustainable all year round and helps to test Enduro
riders on more technical and fresh singletrack stuff.  It also would
put the brakes on the possibility of putting in any additional trail
of this kind.

If you or anyone you know is using these trails, or if you happen to
come across someone who is doing so while you are out riding in the
Nemadji, PLEASE do what you can to put a stop to it.
