Summer is upon us and about one third of the riding season has already passed.

Many may be wondering what happened to the Dirty Knobby. Good news — the Dirty Knobby 2012 has not passed you by.

The Dirty Knobby 2012 will be on Sept. 8 in the Mountain House Road area. It will be hosted by members of the Williams Lake Off Road Motorcycle Association. It will (as always) be open to all ages and skill levels, with more fun and activities planned than ever before.

A possible change in location may provide a much improved parking area and room to host this event. Visit www.wlorma.ca for updates on events and locations. Printed advertising will precede this fall’s event too.

WLORMA encourages all off-road users to respect the areas and other users of the places in which they recreate. Be sure to ask for permission for access to private property, be sure to close all range gates that you open, be respectful around cattle and horses, and be aware that mountain bikers, hikers and horseback riders share the same areas as we do.

The association would also like to give a huge high five to the mountain bikers in the area for the success of their registered trail network on Fox Mountain. As the association is also pursuing a registered trail network, it says it admires the amount of time and commitment that a small group of riders have given for the good of a huge demographic of riders — members or not.

WLORMA asks all dirtbikers to show the utmost of respect for the hard work that has gone into the Fox Mountain network by passing through these areas cautiously, staying off of man-made obstacles, and remembering that most mountain bike traffic flows downhill — don’t ride against the flow to avoid accidents and conflict.

Heed the non-motorized postings on some of the trails by using other trails. Through hard work and co-operation there will always be room for all two-wheeled users to ride in harmony.

The annual, famous Overlander Cross Country is scheduled for the Sept. 9. The association looks forward to seeing all of you out at the event to spectate and maybe even ride with some of the best in the province.

The association reminds trail users that riding on Crown land is a privilege — not a right — so responsible, respectful, and a good ambassador for the sport that many of us love so much — dirt biking!

As WLORMA is a non-profit organization, the association encourages anyone interested to join and become a member.

Membership info is available on the association’s website.
