As we gear up for the riding season, it's always important to note the conditions out there so no inadvertent damage is caused by ATV travel. Below is a link to the current burning restrictions on the Government of Manitoba website. ATVMB recommends avoiding back country travel during dry conditions. Stay safe out there!

Aquatic Invasive Species - Stop the Spread!
Posted on: Tuesday May 8, 2018 - 10:20 am CDT

Zebra mussels, an aquatic invasive species are in Manitoba waterways and we are all responsible for assisting in the fight to prevent the spread.  Adult zebra mussels attach to anything that sits in the water, including boats, canoes, trailers, fishing equipment, etc. and can survive out of water for 7 to 30 days. When zebra mussels are born (veligers), they are microscopic and cannot be seen but there could be a hundred of them in a single drop of water. That is why it is so important to clean, drain and dry anything that has come in contact with infested waters, including your ATV.

Breaking News
Posted on: Friday April 27, 2018 - 12:07 pm CDT

The Belair ATV Club, a member club of ATV Manitoba, is pleased to announce that after a year and a half of planning, field reconnaissance and negotiations with the Province, the Department of Sustainable Development (DSD) has approved a significant series of recognized ATV trails in the Belair Forest for management by the Belair ATV Club. The formal Land Use Agreement was officially signed on Wednesday, April 25, 2018.

 

This new trail network compliments and connects to the recently developed Whistle Pig Rail Trail from Pine Falls to Gull Lake, and the hope is to continue the expansion of rail trail connectivity all the way to East Selkirk, all of which adds significant kilometers of trail to the ATVMB trail network in Manitoba.

 

The new trail network includes the main north/south stem trails, the North Star and Ridge Trails, spanning from Stead to Traverse Bay Road East. Branching off these main trails are six scenic loop trails.  In addition, the rail line west of Hwy 59 running from Grand Beach Park to Traverse Bay Corner and a connector trail (north of Belair Road) eastward from the rail trail back to the North Star Trail are also included. A recently approved multi-use trail for the Red River North Trail Association was just cleared from Lester Beach east to Hwy 59/North Star Trail, and the Osprey Trail has been cleared along the south boundary of the park.

 

Plans for the new trail network include 10 evaucation sites for STARS and/or ground EMS,  two staging areas at the north and south ends and five information kiosks. Signage of the trail will begin this summer.

 

For ATVMB clubs to continue working on provincial trail development that benefits all who enjoy the sport, your support is needed.  Riders are encouraged to join a club and if there isn't one in your area, consider starting one.  For more information on ATVMB, member clubs and how you can become involved, visit http://www.atvmb.ca.

 

ATVMB wishes everyone a fun, safe and responsible riding season. Please respect other trail users and all fire/travel bans that may be in place.

ATVMB New Board of Directors
Posted on: Tuesday March 20, 2018 - 12:13 pm CDT

ATV Manitoba held their first Club Summit on Saturday, March 17th, in conjunction with the 2018 Annual General Meeting. The summit was a relaxed event providing ATVMB Club executives with the opportunity to network with the ATVMB Board of Directors and hear from Oksana Buhel of the Canadian Off Highway Vehicle Distributors Council (COHV), who gave a presentation on Club/Federation relationships and how we are connected to the bigger national picture through the All Terrain Quad Council of Canada (AQCC) and COHV. 

The Annual General Meeting followed the Summit in the afternoon when members heard from Blair McTavish of the Department of Sustainable Development; Chris Ewen, Mayor of Ritchot; Yvonne Rideout, Executive Director of Snoman; and Bob Lagasse, MLA for Dawson Trail. 

Members also participated in the annual election of officers and we are happy to report that we now have a Board of 11 directors who are all eager to serve as the leaders of the ATV community in Manitoba. Thanks to all directors for volunteering their time and expertise to assist ATVMB in building the ATV trail network in Manitoba and encouraging safe responsible riding on our trails.

We would also like to extend thanks to departing board members Calvin Egg, Chris Frazao and Natalie Sever for volunteering their time to serve on the ATVMB Board of Directors. We wish each of them continued success in the future. 

Please join us in congratulating the new ATVMB Board of Directors:
