THE NEW OFF-ROAD FAMILY

WIDE OPEN By Karel Kramer THE NEW OFF-ROAD FAMILY For those who don’t live near a desert, you would be hard-pressed to imagine the off-road invasion over long holiday weekends. In popular riding areas you can reach the top of a hill and think you are seeing small cities, but those are merely enormous gatherings of trucks, vans, campers, trailers and motor homes. We are pleased to see that today, and more than ever, we are seeing riding groups camped and riding together that are not segregated. We aren’t talking…

WHERE TO RIDE: LITTLE SAHARA

By the staff of Dirt Wheels WHERE TO RIDE: LITTLE SAHARA For those of us in California where two of our major dune playgrounds require driving through some of the most desolate desert around, reaching the Little Sahara Recreation Area (LSRA) is a treat. From Salt Lake City, the nearest major population and transportation hub, the trip to Little Sahara is around two hours with a trailer. Along the way you’ll see lakes, rivers, mining towns and rolling prairie. LSRA records more than 20,000 visitors on the busy…

WINTER RIDING FUN

-- Having a blast in the snow -- By D. West -- It’s that time of year when the weather becomes colder and we transition from autumn to winter. For Southern California riders, it means they get to spend more time riding in the desert and sand dunes, which are too hot at other times of the year. For riders in other parts of the country, it means they may have to deal with snow on the trails. WINTER RIDING FUN The good thing about quads and UTVs is that they’re able to travel across snow very…

WINTER RIDING FUN

-- Tis the season... -- By D. West We have moved into a new riding season now, and that is, of course, determined by the climate. The weather brings cooler temperatures, which is a welcome change from the burning hot days of riding in the summer. I suppose one’s fondness of this climate difference is based on what part of the country one lives in. I’ve never lived way up north and had to deal with deep snow and ice. Perhaps I’d dread wintertime if it kept me from being able to ride on good old dirt. However, I live in…

RIDING ACROSS WILD CANYON

RIDING ACROSS WILD CANYON There are certain things that make a place one of your favorite places to ride. Something to give the riding experience a bit of a unique feeling. Perhaps an unusually beautiful view or maybe a section of trail that raises your heartbeat into the turbo zone. Having to connect the trails by riding across a bridge like this would certainly give you a rush. It's not unusual to come to make-shift bridges on a trail to help you get across a deep creek or a big ditch. However, this one here…

3-WHEELER NEWS

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 3-WHEELER NEWS Production of 3-Wheelers ceased in 1987 due to safety concerns as 4-Wheelers took over the market.  Most Major race series then moved away from 3-Wheelers around that same time period.  In 2014 the New East Extreme Dirt Track Series allowed 3-Wheelers back into the regular program as exhibition classes and they quickly grew over night.  At one of the series largest Events in 2018 at Pine Lake Raceway one can easily find more than 100 of these 3-wheeler machines from the 80’s back…

WHERE TO RIDE IN HAWAII

-- A dream trip to Kauai's lush Princeville Ranch -- By Ken Faught The garden island of Kauai is arguably one of the most beautiful locations on the planet. In fact, over a hundred motion pictures have been filmed on the island, including Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, South Pacific, Soul Surfer and the hit TV show “Gilligan’s Island.” The island gets its beauty from rainfall and regularly trades top honors with Costa Rica as the world’s wettest spot with upwards of 450 inches of rain a year. Yes, that is…

WHERE TO RIDE: SAND HOLLOW STATE PARK

-- Off-road wonderland in Hurricane, Utah -- By the staff of Dirt Wheels Many of us live in states that seem driven to limit or even fully eliminate off-road recreation. In light of that, it is satisfying and rewarding to visit Utah and experience a state park teamed with BLM land like Sand Hollow. Sand Hollow is not far from the state’s southern and western borders and likewise relatively close to Zion National Park. You’ll find the typical yet spectacular southern Utah red rock inside the park, as well as be…
