The Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders (RMAR), will host its Moab Rendezvous from April 16 through April 18. Up to 100 motorcyclists will go out in groups of 10 or fewer on the trails designated around Moab. The group’s goal is to raise $10,000 for Moab-based Ride with Respect, a nonprofit organization that works to conserve shared-use recreation through trail work and education. In turn, Ride with Respect is pledging to pass along 5 percent of the proceeds to each of five organizations — the BlueRibbon Coalition and Utah Shared Access Alliance, which advocate access for responsible OHV recreation, Moab Friends For Wheelin’, which does trail work, service projects,and social rides on 4WD trails, the Brody Young Scholarship of the Utah Peace Officers Association, which grants funding to help the families of law enforcement officers obtain college education and the BEACON Afterschool Program, which provides academic and social activities for elementary and middle-school students in Grand County. The president of RMAR, Matt McCabe, says he is “pretty confident” about reaching the fundraising goal for Ride with Respect. Clif Koontz of Ride with Respect said the donations will be a small way of sharing with other trail and educational organizations.
