The RMDRA believes the future of Off Road Motorcycling (ORM) in Albera is based on family participation and numbers.
Responsible land use and education now will provide accessible riding areas for generations.
The RMDRA is just one local group, but joined with other riding groups and other Off Highway Vehicle (OHV)
users we make a voice that will be heard and that will make a difference.
If everybody that rode designated areas like McLean Creek, Waiparous / Ghost, and Indian Graves to name a few,
joined their local club, we would have huge numbers all across Alberta. These numbers would give us a bigger voice with Government and the Public providing
more leverage to help us keep our recreational areas open.
The RMDRA has undertaken many trail initiatives that have been funded through Federal and Provincial Grants.
Additional funds are available through other groups, and the more members we have, the more funding is available
for our projects.
The incredible freedom that we now enjoy at the most popular riding areas around Calgary is being threatened.
We are currently working to keep trails open and add more riding areas in McLean Creek, Waiparous / Ghost, and Livingstone areas.
Alberta Sustainable Resource Development (SRD) and the RMDRA have been working together to map both the McLean Creek FLUZ and Ghost ORM trails.
In 2009 the RMDRA mapped and installed signs for over 700km of ORM trails in McLean Creek, and has gotten approval for the first
50Km of ORM specific trail in Fallen Timber. It is our goal to add hundreds of KM’s of additional sustainable trails in the
Calgary area in the next few years. All of this proposed trail creation takes volunteers and funds.
Your RMDRA executive and many members are working with the major Provincial and Federal trail advocacy groups like the
ASORM , AOHVA ,
NTC , and
SRD to help save everybody’s riding areas. With their generous support we have benn able to
promote responsible land use and we have paid for our members to attend training in sustainable trail creation.
These programs demonstrate to the government the commitment of the ORM community to our sport.
In 2010 we plan to undertake our most aggressive trail creation initiative to date.
Nobody wants to ride alone!
We host Wednesday night Guided Rides, Family Campouts, and regular get-togethers. In 2009 our Guided Rides Program
was a runaway success! Most nights 20 to 40 riders would get together and learn local off-road riding areas with our experienced guides.
We promote all skill levels and encourage family riding. Chances are the person you are riding with was an RMDRA newcomer at one time too! There’s no better way
to improve your skills, find the sweet single track or the best bike maintenance and mods than hanging out with other riders.
The RMDRA forum is the communication network of the organization. This is where members discuss
topics relating to off-road motorcycling, plan rides and buy and sell bikes and gear.
Membership provides access to even more forums on the site. Even if you have never registered for a forum before,
don’t be shy, visit the forum today.
We intend to keep our association meetings fun and entertaining. We intend to have 1 hour of
association business like land advocacy, race planning, or group ride organization, followed by 1 hour of presentations or video
entertainment at every meeting. Many meetings even feature door prizes from our local dealer sponsors!
Meetings are a great place to meet and network with other riders. Remember, the RMDRA is a family organization and all family
members are welcome at our meetings.
We are a Calgary based club organizing CMRC affiliated off-road races. We hold events annually for those
members that enjoy the challenge that racing brings.
The RMDRA is affiliated with both the CMRC and the ADRA. RMDRA has voting rights at the ADRA. This
allows us to have input into issues that affect off-road racers and allows us to stay current with proposed
rule changes, procedures and calendar of events.
You can register online or print off and fill out the
membership form. You can bring it to a meeting, or mail it to the RMDRA (address is
on the form). Or just come to a meeting and sign up. We need your support.
