    Hello Dirt Riders,

    It is with our deepest regrets that NBDRA must inform you that the we will not be holding the Harescramble Race event as planned at Crabbe Mountain July 16th, 2023.

    The decision made was not an easy one but we strongly believe to be the right one. Your Board of Directors discussed this decision at length and in great detail. At this time, we have determined that conditions are not optimal to deliver the quality and safety of race our membership deserves and expects.

    The specialised nature of our sport introduces various factors that must be considered before holding any event. This decision was not taken lightly and was done so with our member's best interests at heart.

    We understand that significant effort was put into trail-blazing by our volunteers in preparation for this event. The NBDRA board will ensure those people are properly recognised & celebrated.

    We also understand that many will be disappointed by the decision but know that we are evaluating dates for an alternate race this summer, and in doing so, keep 2023 to a 5 race series as planned. Any new events will be shared as early as possible.

    Refunds will be issued for those who already registered.

    Thank you all for your patience and love. Our volunteers, members and their families are always our foremost thought, and the are the driving force behind everything we do.

    Kind regards,

    NBDRA Board of Directors

    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delays is because things are moving fast and each time we plan a communication, new progress occurs and we're quickly outdated.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.
