Another day, another attack on off roaders. Well, we threw all our weight to keep Johnson Valley (With uncertain results. The government maintains their "we will do what we want" stance) and it looks like we need to do it again to keep Ocotillo Wells. Environmentalists want to close the open riding section of Ocotillo and turn it into a designated trails only area, ending what brings so much of the allure to the place. To a dirt bike rider, this would be like putting a 15 MPH speed limit on the Nurburgring.
Please help and write to your representative, even if you have never been there, never plan on going, and never leave the safety of paved roads.
