On April 15, at the Trail of 100 Giants in the Sequoia NF, President Clinton
proclaimed much of the areas containing the trails used in our upcoming
Sequoia ride as a new national monument. On January 1st, 2001, motorized use
will no longer be allowed. This will be your last year to enjoy those
trails. Our Riders of the Round Table event scheduled in October completely
utilizes trails in this new monument and will no longer be offered after
this year. We hope to see you at those two rides. Our Sequoia Scenic
Challenge will continue each year at an earlier date from Lake Isabella
utilizing the lower forest trails and road systems.
There is a powerful coalition of local users forming to perhaps prevent this
monument from happening and a meeting has been announced for this Tuesday,
May 2nd, at Hodel's Restaurant in Bakersfield at 7:00 pm. I hope to attend
along with you and our fellow enthusiasts. For more info, call Dick Taylor
at: 661-327-0216. I will keep you informed as they will need our donations
for lawyer fees.
The following weekend after this, May 6 & 7 is our "Trails of the Tejon"
ride from Lebec/Gorman located atop Interstate 5. We will be in the parking
lot of the Best Rest Inn and the Flying "J" Truck Stop for sign-ups. I'll be
spending the next several days scouting and charting new routes for two days
of fun and adventure. Please attend!
Visit http://www.dualdogs.com today for more ride information and entry form
print outs. We hope to see you at our Sequoia rides as it will be your last
opportunity to traverse the best trails in the Southern Sierra Nevada's.
More from Dual Dogs:
Dear Dual Sport friends,
It appears I will be out of town May 2nd through the 4th missing the
coalition meeting in Bakersfield. Are there any of you out there who can
attend and represent Team Dual Dogs with our support and be able to report
back the information needed? It would be most appreciated.
Some facts and information to present:
We have in our database over 3000 Dual Sport enthusiasts and 200 aftermarket
marketing managers nationwide. 2000 of those are our event participants and
local enthusiasts, our email address book is near 400 and growing.
We have used trails and roads within the Sequoia National Forest and its
Monument for ten years with recorded use and annual volunteer trail work
totaling hundreds of man hours.
We can help with a donation drive and any quick response with our email
members. Our events are welcome to any coalition members wanting to attend
and set-up any booth for a donation drive. We want to help.
Please consider to attend and any donation would be greatly needed.
