South Cow Mountain OHV Area will be Closed During Motorcycle Races


The Bureau of Land Management will close the South Cow Mountain Off-Highway Vehicle Area to general recreation use and through traffic from Friday, April 4, through Sunday, April 6, 2014, to provide public safety during the North Bay Motorcycle Club's Sawmill and Crosscut Family Poker Run motorcycle events.

The BLM has granted North Bay Motorcycle Club an exclusive use permit to use the trails throughout OHV area for this event.

"We are expecting hundreds of riders, all riding at high speeds," said BLM Ukiah Field Manager Rich Burns. "We have to be as certain as we can be that no one accidentally gets onto the race course, for the safety of the participants and the public. The area will be reopened to the public on Sunday afternoon when the last participant is off the course."

If rain delays the events, they will be rescheduled for April 25 through 27.

Information about the events is available from the North Bay Motorcycle Club at www.northbaymc.org.
