What Central Coast Motorcycle Association is all about?

The Central Coast Motorcycle Association is a family oriented off road motorcycle club. The CCMA has been in existence in one form or another since the 70’s. In the past we hosted the Leapin’ Lizard Enduro, which fell victim to the all too common loss of trail miles.  We put on several rides every year like the Hangover Ride every New Year’s Day and the Nathan Woods Memorial Ride every Spring.

We have also put on numerous motocross races including the High Mountain Motocross — all great successes.  More recently we have been working with the USFS to improve Pozo, our local riding area. We have purchased picnic tables that have been placed at Turkey Flats, and Chester Springs.

 Public Comments Needed for 2019-2020 California State OHV Grant

The Central Coast Trail Riders Association (CCMA) Public Input Needed 2018-2019 California State Parks OHV Green Sticker Grant Meeting

The CCMA is requesting public input for the 2019-2020 California State Off-Highway Motor Vehicle (OHV) Green Sticker funding/proposal submission cycle by hosting a General Public Open House meetings on Thursday February 27, 2020 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. The meeting will be held at the:

La Mexicana Restaurant.  7495 El Camino Real, Atascadero, CA 93422.

Each year, the State of California makes funding available through the OHV Grants Program. The grants program provides financial assistance to eligible agencies and organizations (federal, city, county, nonprofit, etc.) that develop, expand, maintain, operate, support, or contribute to well-managed, high-quality, OHV recreation areas, roads and trails. The OHV grants program has funds that are available for education, operation and maintenance, law enforcement and restoration projects.

The Central Coast Trail Riders (CCMA) will be submitting an OHV grant application for ground operations funding to help improve the overall OHV experience on the Los Padres National Forest OHV areas, including Pozo.

The CCMA has begun developing our State OHV grant project proposal for the 2019/2020 program period.  We would like to invite the public and our members to our monthly meeting to discuss potential project ideas for our grant deliverables.

Public input will be gathered at these meeting or you may submit written comments by sending them to:

Central Coast Trail Riders Association (CCMA)

P.O. Box 4942

San Luis Obispo, CA 93403

Attention: Bruce Whitcher

After March 2, preliminary applications will be available for public review and comment online by visiting the California State OHV Grants and Cooperative Agreements program at www.ohv.parks.ca.gov.

Comments should be submitted via email to www.ohv.parks.ca.gov and also mailed to P.O.Box 4942, San Luis Obispo, CA 93403 Attention: Bruce Whitcher

 

To all potential volunteers.  The CCMA will be scheduling one or two work days in the November/December 2013 time frame.  The work days will concentrate on water bar maintenance on the Pozo trails.  This involves hand tools used to clean out existing water bars so that they drain correctly.  This maintenance work helps to preserve the water bars so that they do not wash out.  It is not difficult work, but the soil must be moist.  Scheduling of the work days will be on short notice because of the need to have moist soils, but not too wet.  So, this is a heads up.  If you are interested look for e-mails in the November/December time frame announcing work day specifics.

In the meantime, if you have questions please call Bruce Whitcher at 805.459.7111 or e-mail at user501968@aol.com  or Dennis Law 805.801.8829 dlaw@amblaw.com

Work is needed on all trails, but especially Tower trail, Burnout and Las Chiches.  Work will consist of clearing drains and some brushing.  Some tools will be provided but volunteers should bring their own if possible.
