16 Aug 08 ATV Maine: An Interview with President Jim Lane
What is ATV Maine?
We recently talked with Jim Lane, President of A.T.V. Maine, about Maine ATV trails and the sport in general. A new ATV spur trail directly to Northern Outdoors Adventure Resort was officially approved earlier this spring, opening up access to hundreds of miles of exceptional ATV trails to our Northern Outdoors guests right from our cabins and resort. Though we have years of experience as a premier snowmobiling resort in Maine, we are still learning about ATVs. Jim has been involved with ATVs for over a decade and is an avid rider. Here’s what we found out:
ATV Maine, the Alliance of Trail Vehicles of Maine, is a private, non-profit organization that represents over 100 affiliated ATV Clubs in Maine when dealing with the state, landowners, and other issues affecting ATV trails and riders in Maine. ATVMaine has a great list of all the Maine ATV Clubs, with contact info, so you can find out detailed trail, riding, and resort information. A.T.V.Maine membership dues fund the organization’s efforts to assist Landowners and Clubs with trail issues, pro-ATV legislation, and other activities supporting responsible ATV sport.
