Planning Overview

In "Management Guidelines for OHV Recreation," author Tom Crimmins proposes the "four Es" of management: Engineering, Education, Enforcement, and Evaluation (or monitoring). Ride with Respect focuses on the first two Es, though we've assisted in all four. A fifth pillar of management should simply be Enjoyable Trails! Without ample opportunity, no amount of engineering, education, enforcement, or evaluation will succeed. So Ride with Respect participates in land-use planning with a handful of government agencies. That way, all recreationists have a place to do their thing.
