Southern ATV Clubs: Alabama Edition

There are a quite a few ATV clubs in the Heart of Dixie. Most of them are doing great things for their state and community. Sometimes the folks in the southern part of our fine country are overlooked, so I will shine a light on the ones that I could find information concerning their group or organization.

North Alabama
Shoals ATV Riders, Inc. (www.shoalsatvriders.com) is established in Muscle Shoals, Al. They offer at least one organized ride per month. This group rides for fun and fund…fund raising is a passion for this group. The Shoals Riders make contributions to numerous groups such as the Make -A-Wish Foundation and Wish I Could Foundation. They make local rides as well as a few distant locations. They, in part with the Cheaha Trail Riders, hold an annual event to raise a few bucks for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This year the ride will be held on Nov. 4th at the all new Minooka Off-road Park in Chilton County, Al. Email the Shoals Riders at officers@shoalsatvriders.com

North Alabama Trail Riders Asc. (www.natra.dirtrider.net) is an ATV and motorcycle organization based in Huntsville, Al. NATRA is a family oriented club dedicated to riding and having fun. They heavily involved in dirt bikes but don’t mind breaking out the quads from time to time. For more information contact NATRA wintrak@hiwaay.net

The BamaBoggers (www.bamaboggers.com) headquarters is in Decatur, Al. Their motto says it all, “Mud, Ruts, & Guts”. They are extreme mud boggers serving the Deep South.

Central Alabama
Cheaha Trail Riders (www.cheahatrailriders.com) are located in Munford, Al. and was established in 1988. Every since the beginning of this outstanding group, they have devoted a lot of hours to aid in developing and maintaining off-road riding areas in the state such as Kentuck ORV Park in the Talladega National Forest and the all new Minooka OHV Park in Chilton County, Al. CTR, in part with the Shoals ATV Riders, have hosted the annual Make-A-Wish charity ride that usually has been held at Kentuck. This year it will be held at Minooka on Nov.4.

MudandDirt (www.mudanddirt.com) is located in Birmingham and Mobile. MudandDirt get heavily involved in mud, trails, and quad racing. These folks are serious about quads and motorcycles. But don’t take my word for it; check them out on their website. If there is an event with mud then you can bet MudandDirt will probably be attending.

Alabama provides all types of ATV groups and organizations that all have the same goal in mind…..FUN. Contact your local group for more information about joining or just give them a “test ride” before you commit to one. If your club is not in the article, just inform ATV SOURCE about your club and they will submit it on their list of clubs from state to state.
