Heavy 's nature's condition of course gives challenge for us to explore it, but did not mean that we cross with term subjugates nature's condition, willing to subjugate nature should we conquer first of all, so that we cross without botch and change nature's condition that there are.

Offroad Motorcycle or dirt bike riding is another growing form of outdoor recreation. Enthusiasts enjoy the opportunity to get deeper into the backcountry to enjoy nature, hone their technical driving skills, and experience the comradery of the shared experience with other enthusiasts.

Each of us has a different reason for pursuing outdoor recreation but we all share the responsibility for protecting natural resources, respecting other recreational trail users, and maintaining access to our favorite recreational opportunities. The best tool to achieve these responsibilities is to maintain a positive outdoor ethic which minimizes impacts on our lands, waters, and other recreationists.

Throughout the Tread Lightly! This system will help us prepare to responsibly enjoy our off-highway outdoors experiences, and to be a positive influence on nature and those around us. Now, off to the wonderful world of responsible dirt bike riding, the Tread Lightly! way. Hereunder all that related to tread lightly fundamentals and principles :

1. Travel Responsibly on roads and trails or in permitted areas.

  • Travel only in areas that are open to your type of recreation.
  • Stay on routes and trails designated for your type of travel.
  • Don't create new routes or expand existing trails.
  • Cross streams only at fords where the road or trail intersects the stream.
  • Understand and practice proper techniques related to negotiating terrain.
  • Always travel with a partner. Traveling solo can leave you vulnerable if you have an accident or breakdown.

These are the fundamentals of reducing impacts on the land. Dirt bike riding requires specialized techniques for negotiating terrain. By learning and applying these techniques, your impact on natural resources will be greatly reduced.

2. Respect The Rights Of Others including private property owners and all recreational trail users, campers and others to allow them to enjoy their recreational activities undisturbed.

  • Respect and be considerate of other users so that all may enjoy a quality outdoor experience. Keep a cheerful, leasant attitude. A gracious “Hello”goes a long way to building a friendly relationship with other trail users.
  • Yield the right of way to those passing you or traveling uphill and always yield to horses. When driving also yield to hikers, and bikers. Leave gates as you find them unless otherwise posted.
  • If crossing private property, be sure to ask permission from the landowner(s).
  • Keep the noise and dust down.
  • Don't be a trail hog. Share with all those who recreate, regardless of their means of travel.
Respect and common courtesy go a long way. By valuing the environment and those who enjoy it, you keep recreational opportunities available for you and others to enjoy. Remember these basic rules and you will find your outdoor experience to be more rewarding.

3. Educate Yourself by obtaining travel maps and regulations from public agencies, planning for your trip, taking recreation skills classes, and knowing how to use and operate your equipment safely.

  • Know local laws and regulations.
  • Know which areas and routes are open to your type of recreation.
  • Make your trip safe. Have the right information, maps, and equipment and know how to use them.
  • Make sure the vehicle is compatible with road or trail conditions.
  • Make sure your vehicle is mechanically up to task. Be prepared with tools, supplies, spares and a spill kit for trailside repairs.
With a little preparation and education, you can make your next backcountry experience fun and safe while protecting the environment. Always plan for the expected as well as the unexpected.

If the opportunity presents itself, take a course or workshop related to your favorite outdoor activity. Universities, community education programs, and outdoor retailers and outfitters often offer classes related to recreational activities. Education and preparation will make your trip easier and more enjoyable.

4. Avoid Sensitive Areas such as meadows, lakeshores, wetlands and streams, unless on designated routes. This protects wildlife habitat and sensitive soils from damage.

  • Other sensitive habitats to avoid unless on designated routes include cryptobiotic soils of the desert, tundra, and seasonal nesting or breeding areas.
  • Avoid disturbing historical, archeological, and paleontological sites.
  • Avoid “spooking”livestock and wildlife you encounter and keep your distance.
  • Motorized and mechanized vehicles are not allowed in areas designated Wilderness.
With the number of recreationists rapidly growing every year, the repeated and often unintentional misuse of land creates environmental damage especially in sensitive areas. By using common sense and taking a few precautions, recreationists will ensure that the natural places they frequent will remain available and in good condition for future use.

5. Do Your Part by leaving the area better than you found it, properly disposing of waste, minimizing the use of fire, avoiding the spread of invasive species, restoring degraded areas, and joining a local enthusiast organization.

  • Leave it better than you found it. Carry a garbage bag and pick up litter left by others.
  • If you encounter repairable damage on the road or trail, don't pass it by. Stop and pick up litter and repair damage as best you can.
  • Properly dispose of garbage, sanitary waste, and gray water.
  • Follow practices to avoid spreading invasive species.
  • Protect the soundscape by preventing unnecessary noise.
  • Join a local enthusiast group. They provide great opportunities to learn more about your sport and local recreation areas and volunteer events, and can become wonderful community to share your experiences with.
Taking a little extra time and effort to minimize your impacts and mitigate the impacts of those who came before you will keep your favorite recreation spot open and beautiful today and in the future. See also at Tread Lightly!
