Published on: 6/27/2020
Trail Maintenance on July 11. We would like to have enough people to have two crews working maybe 1/2 mile apart. One crew with at least 7 to 8 people with two gas powered long pole hedge trimmers and two gas powered pole saws. The other 3 to 4 people would throw brush off the trail and shuttle machines. The second crew with at least 4 to 5 people with one gas powered hedge trimmer and one gas powered pole saw. The other 2 to 3 people would throw brush and shuttle machines. More people would be great then we could add chain saws to the crews for cutting larger brush and trimming downfall trees. Meet at 4th of July North parking lot at 9 am. The club has all the equipment. 50” trail. Call if you need a ride on the trail. Bring lunch and water. Usually back to parking lot between 2 to 4 pm.

Trail Maintenance is on June 20th! We need all the help we can get! This is a great time to get some fresh air and take out your pent up frustration on some brush/limbs while improving the riding conditions on the local trails. It also helps NIATV get funding to put towards our other goals.
Please see the "Event Calendar" and sign up. There are options available if you'd like to assist but do not have a 50" machine.

Heads up for our neighbors to the west!

It would appear people are reporting WA license plates found in ID recreation areas and law enforcement is taking action....don't shoot the messenger.

Disappearing Rides.
Published on: 6/12/2019
There has been significant confusion with the new Calendar of Events format. "FYI" events (parades, state fair, etc.) were being confused with "NIATV Sponsored Events" (actual Club Rides). I have pulled many items from the Calendar and will be requesting clarification on them. Going forward, "FYI" events will be posted in the Forum Section. Sorry for any trouble this has caused, we're all still in a learning curve here.
