BENICIA, CA (April 6) – The country’s largest and fastest growing retailer of motorcycle apparel and accessories joined forces with local off-road groups and presented a $10,000 dollar check to a national trail recreation group to promote and protect responsible off-road access to public lands. Cycle Gear and AMA District 36 made the donation to the BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) at the company’s headquarters in Benicia, California.

The check symbolized Cycle Gear’s total amount of matching funds that it will donate in 2007 to the BRC via its Trail Access Fund. This is the 4rd year in a row where Cycle Gear matches, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 per annum club and rider donations to the Fund.

Dave Bertram, off-road legend and CEO of Cycle Gear, states, “This check presentation shows our continued strong support of the BlueRibbon Coalition’s efforts to successfully champion our rights to access public lands in a responsible manner. It also highlights our efforts to partner with off-road organizations such as AMA District 36 and the TimeKeepers Motorcycle Club who have taken advantage of our Trail Fund Program for 2007.”

Dave Pickett, president of AMA Dist. 36, said, “Programs such as this will continue to grow in importance as the popularity of off-road recreation continues to increase. With that increase comes many challenges and this collaborative effort will help keep the sport going for generations to come.”

Don Amador, western representative for the BlueRibbon Coalition, said, “I know riders appreciate seeing off-road businesses work with local user groups to help promote and protect off-highway vehicle recreation. Cycle Gear has been a leader in that regard and it’s great to have them as part of our access team.”
