    Hello Dirt Riders,

    Here is the latest update on the trail access file.  The reason there has been delays is because things are moving fast and each time we plan a communication, new progress occurs and we're quickly outdated.

    There was a disconnect somewhere beyond NBDRA borders, and so we asked for our membership to assist in shining a light on that disconnect.

    Thanks to you and your efforts, the NBDRA was successful in securing renewed attention and support to the Trail Access goals for offroad motorcycles.

    Since then, many within the NB Provincial Government have reached out, offering their input and assistance. Similarly, many MLA's in your respective regions have vocalized support, several to me personally.

    QuadNB has formed a committee comprised of their own board members, with the goal of assisting the NBDRA in our trail access endeavor.

    Representatives from NBDRA and QuadNB met on March 16th, to discuss a letter sent to both organizations from DNRE and DTI, detailing their minimum requirements to grant immediate access to as much of the trail system as possible. We collaborated on potential solutions to these items, and that proposal was confirmed received by DNRE just yesterday.

    The requirements outlined in this letter included; signage, trail/organization insurance, municipal bylaws, crown land, private land owners, and corporate land owners, DTI roads, safety equipment, mapping, and administrative governance of the model by both associations.

    Rapid progress is being made. We appreciate everyone's patience.

    Please be sure to like and follow the New Brunswick Dirt Riders Association - NBDRA page. Very soon, this will be one focal point from which official news and policy changes about our sport in NB will be announced.

    The NBDRA will be tasked by the Province to inform the membership concerning rules of access, regulations, trail safety, permissible areas, and more. This will be done by registered email address for active and former NBDRA members, and to the public at large through Social Media.

    Please feel free to reach out with any questions, we're happy to answer as best we can.

    Thank you again. Without each of you and your love for the sport, we wouldn't be where we are today.

    Kyle Simpson - President, NBDRA

    Hi fellow riders,
         As you know, NBDRA has been working closely with QUADNB and the province to secure access to the managed trails access for our members.  Unfortunately, there has been delays beyond our control.  To that effect and as we intensify our efforts to achieve progress with this file, we are looking for support from our members.  We would like for our members to reach out to their local MLA to help exert pressure with your goverment offices and your government representatives to take immediate action on the Managed Trail Access file.
         Attached is an example of a letter.  Please use this as a reference but we encourage you use your own words.  The example provided should help you present your thoughts in a contructive yet stern manner.
        We also encourage you to do regular follow-ups after the initial conversation.  We cannot afford to relent our efforts if we want to see progress.

    NBDRA thanks you for your continued support.

    NBDRA is sad to announce that the Derrick Crann Memorial ride has been cancelled for this year. The Fundraising event will be reschedule for Spring of 2022.

    The timing and efforts required to organize the event in these times of uncertainty is very challenging. Out of respect for all the volunteers, we have came to the decision that it would be better to reschedule the event. All registered participants will be refunded.

    NBDRA is looking to discover the potential interest for young dirt riders to participate in a Learn & Ride event on September 11th in McQuade. We would like to focus on young riders in the PeeWee/Schoolboy classes that have little experience. The event would include balance exercises, braking drills, general bike handling techniques and a fun game on top of a ride in McQuade. We are hoping this event can help parents introduce their children to the sport by providing a safe and informative venue.
