Keeping Trails Open, Protecting Your Rights


ATVsNobody does more for ATVing than the ATVA. Join today!

Do you believe kids should be able to ride ATVs? Under a recent federal law, the sale of kids ATVs was illegal. That is, until the ATVA, working with individual members, industry partners and others, fought to overturn the ban. Be part of future battles to protect our kids' right to ride and race! Join today!

Do you ride on public land? Where would you ride if it got shut down tomorrow? At the national and local levels, the ATVA is working to block efforts to close trails and shut riders out of public land. Join today?

Do you want to ride on your own land? Is there a private riding area near you? Some jurisdictions try to pass laws banning riding in your own backyard, or private MX tracks. The ATVA fights them. Join today!

Does your health-care plan cover you? Have you checked your medical insurance plan for exclusions? Some insurance plans won't cover injuries suffered on an ATV. The ATVA is working to change that. Join today!

Do you want to ride more trails? When you buy gas for your ATV, do you know where the gas tax money goes? It goes to the federal Recreational Trails Program, which the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), the ATVA's sister organization, helped establish. The program provides funds to the states to develop and maintain recreational trails. Federal lawmakers targeted the program for extinction in 2012 but the ATVA and others fought back, and won. Join today!

ATVsDo you want to make better trails? If you want to build trails, where would you start? A lot of riders start with the ATVA to get expert advice on building trails. Join today!

Do you worry about ethanol in your fuel? Do you know that there is a big push by the ethanol industry to increase the amount of ethanol in gasoline? Increased ethanol could damage ATV engines. The ATVA is working to block any increase in ethanol until it's shown that it's safe for ATVs. Join today!
