Cool Finding Common Ground - TreadLightly Fundraiser

I had the opportunity to work with TreadLightly! and Fat Tire beer (New Belgium Brewing) on a project called Finding Common Ground.

Now before you get all because we had Fat Tire blacklisted as a company not to buy product from, understand that they have made a 180 turn around and support motorized recreation.

Please watch the video, and share away. The more times it is watched on FB and YouTube, the more they will donate to TreadLightly! (They started at $10k and are adding to that amount with each view and like.)

We filmed it in Moab on Cliffhanger and Chicken Corners. It was a fun experience and I am glad I can help TreadLightly! get additional funding outside grants.

Definitely a interesting spin on the message, but not surprising given the times we now live in.


But in the end none of that matters, the root is equal access to all.

Thank you for your help.

I first saw the video on FB and wasn't going to click it other then Val also worked on it and I know Val as a pretty big supporter of gaining more access.

I was surprised to see the turn around on Fat Tire though. I guess they finally realized that mountain bikes are not accepted by the enviro-nazi's either?

Yes, I think they did realize the enviro-nazi's hate mechanized use and just want everything closed. I also think they had a big shift in management that help them realize it.

Yep. Happens quite a bit and some of the crazies have gone to jail because those traps are getting to the point where someone could be killed.

It's funny to see the two camps in mountain biking. There's one group that's terrified of being associated with motorized user groups because they somehow think that environmentalists are going to give them more access just for not having a motor. That same group is also flipping out now that some bikes are being sold with electric assist motors in them.

There's the other camp that believes we should work with other user groups who are getting shut out of trail access.

Some of the most fun trails I have ever ridden are shared OHV trails. Motos make the best berms just by riding in a trail and their whoops are fun to double. Double track trails are usually not as fun, but they're great for access to good single track. There are some exceptions of course. I love ripping down porcupine rim on my bike. I've only had a few close calls with jeeps on the trail, all on me since I'm doing 20-25 and people wheeling are usually crawling in four low.
