    August 2019 Novice Ride

    Ohio 4x4 Trailriders : Novice Ride August 10th at 9am

    This ride will focus on drivers with limited off-road experience. We encourage participation from anyone with a stock to mildly modified 4x4 vehicle (for example 31 - 33 inch tires on a short wheelbase vehicle full size trucks do not do well).

    The ride is in the general vicinity of Tar Hollow state park, Laurelville Ohio, but NOT in the park itself

    We'd really like to stress the need for a "high clearance" 4x4 rig, and encourage both front and rear tow-points. It's no fun for anyone if you get stuck and there is no place to attach a strap or winch without damaging something.

    As nearly all of the routes are legal roadways, ALL VEHICLES must be street legal, all drivers must be licensed, and all driving laws must be complied with. No ATVs/quads, Side-by-Sides, etc.

    NOTICE: there is always a chance of damage to your vehicle when you travel off road. Particular risks in Ohio include "Ohio pinstripes" from bushes/branches. In the spring ride a vehicle did tip over onto its side.

    Activities will include a tech inspection to verify the street/trail worthiness of the vehicle, recovery demonstration/discussions, trail etiquette, and a tread lightly discussion, followed by a planned-to-be-easy trail ride.

    While the day is generally structured as starting with the what are normally the easier trails and working up to the moderate trails the weather can and does play a huge role in determining the actual difficulty of any trail on any given day. Thus we cannot guarantee the difficulty level of any trail before you drive your vehicle on it. There are opportunities between different trails to call it a day if you so decide.

    Those wishing to participate are encouraged to register early as the ride will be limited to 40 novice participants. Specific ride information will be sent to pre-registered participants only.

    This ride will be on Saturday 9:00 A.M. and is planned to run until approximately 4:00 or 5:00 PM. If you are interested in registering for this ride please fill out the online form at:
    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1F...m?vc=0&c=0&w=1

    Ohio 4x4 Trailriders have a zero tolerance for drug and alcohol use on the trail, or prior to the event. Anyone found with drugs or alcohol will be asked to leave and not permitted to participate with the club in the future.

    We would like to emphasize that this is a novice event. If you are a more experienced driver and/or have a modified rig, the club allows non-members to participate in a normal club ride in order for you to get a feel for a "normal" club ride. Our trail rides are always on the 2nd Saturday of every month. If you would like information on a "normal" club ride please ask via the Facebook page, message one of the club members or officers or the club site (Ohio4x4.com).

    If you have any questions regarding the novice ride please reply to this post, or message the club via this page...

    We look forward to seeing you on the trails....

    I've asked the "Novice Committee" what they would like members to do at this point...
