All rides are via dirt bike.

Bike and rider must be in good working condition.

Protective gear (motorcycle helmet, eye protection -preferably goggles, gloves, long sleeve shirt, long pants, and off-road motorcycle boots) must be worn. Also, chest protectors, elbow guards, and knee guards are highly recommended.


Meeting times will be at 9:00 AM with rides staring at 9:30 AM unless otherwise agreed upon with the ride leader. If you intend to ride, please contact the ride leader. Ride leaders may change departure time or meeting place or cancel rides due to lack of participation, bad weather, or unforeseen reasons.


Trail Projects involve clearing trails of deadfall by riding dirtbikes and carrying small hand-saws and other tools to clear the trails. NCTR has small chain saws with backpack and fender mount carriers. Some projects are not rides (e.g., bridge building).


General - Although we are attempting to rate the rides as indicated below, if you have never ridden with NCTR, you should call the ride leader for more details about the terrain, ride difficulty, and general pace of the ride. Also, we will help one another through particularly difficult sections, but in order to maintain the pace as indicated for a particular ride and overall enjoyment of all the riders, we ask that each rider be able to handle the ride as described without excessive help or stops. Generally most rides are all day (40-80 miles), so bring plenty of fuel, water and lunch/snacks. Ask ride leader for details.
