Trails update June 10, 2020

Trails update June 10, 2020 We know that everyone is anxious to get out riding. Our trails are all on private land so we have to ensure the landowners OK with people being there. We have just recently been given permission for two of the board members to even scout the trail conditions. We have one trail that we now have landowner permission to open, but one of the main bridges is heavily damaged and unsafe. The trail cannot be open until this safety concern is addressed.

2020 Events

GLATV usually holds 4 club rides per year starting in June. Unfortunately, due to the current ban on gatherings because of COVID-19, we are not announcing and may have to cancel these events this year. Stay tuned and stay safe.
