POCATELLO, Idaho - BlueRibbon Coalition on March 19 announced that Cycle Gear has pledged $10,000 in support of BRC's efforts to ensure continued access to public lands.

The donation highlights Cycle Gear's total fiscal commitment to the BRC Trail Access Fund for 2012.  This is the 10th year in a row in which Cycle Gear matches club and rider donations, dollar for dollar up to $10,000, BRC announced.

"Trail riders continue to face unwarranted land closures and restrictions at state and federal OHV areas," stated Dave Bertram, Cycle Gear CEO who also is a five-time ISDE gold medalist and two-time national off-road champion. "Cycle Gear is proud of this grant program that supports BRC's efforts to successfully champion responsible motorized recreation on designated roads, trails and areas. Today, the OHV community is confronted with an endless parade of frivolous eco-lawsuits, canceled motorcycle events and closures of historic single-track trails.  The off-road business community must continue to support access groups that fight to protect our rights to enjoy public lands."

"BRC would not be able to continue its work if it were not for generous donations such as this commitment from Cycle Gear whose support is greatly appreciated as it will help fund our access efforts in 2012," added Don Amador, BRC's western representative.
