$10,000 Pledge to the BlueRibbon

BLUERIBBON COALITION, INC.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CYCLE GEAR DONATES TO KEEP TRAILS OPEN IN 2012

CONTACTS:
Don Amador, BRC - 925.625.6287
Dave Bertram, Cycle Gear - 707.747.5053 x112

DATE: March 20, 2012

BENICIA, CA

Cycle Gear, the country's largest retailer of motorcycle apparel and accessories, pledges $10,000 to the BlueRibbon Coalition in support of the organization'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- to the Fund (up to $10,000per year).

Dave Bertram, 5-time ISDE gold medalist, two-time national off-road champion and CEO of Cycle Gear, states, "Trail riders continue to face unwarranted land closures and restrictions at state and federal OHV areas. 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, cancelled 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." Bertram said.

Don Amador, Western Representative for the BlueRibbon Coalition, said, "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."

to them indeed!!!

Thought the same thing, haven't owned a bike since '88 but have friends who do. Went to their site thinking it might be a good place to get a gift . . . http://www.cyclegear.com/

Aside from bike specific items they have all sorts of stuff to wear, use in a rig, around camp etc, the gifts too

Me too and it isn't just a motor cycle place!

They have ATV gear, board shorts, DVR cameras, tennis shoes, snow shovels, shirts, gear bags, sweatshirts etc, all quality name brand stuff from what I saw. Looked like they ship free over a certain $ amount and don't tax some stuff.

$10k to the BRC is another good reason to have a look.
