Hello Eastman ATV, and Friends of Eastman ATV in the Manitoba ORV community. I hope you have enjoyed your offroad experiences this year. The dry conditions put a halt on riding for July and Aug. Equipment was in short supply, for some models, making it a challenging summer to start to ride. Regardless of that, more and more people are enjoying their SxS or ATV, by getting out for the day with friends and/or family. It’s nice to see the growth of the ORV community in a safe family oriented environment.
The weather turned around in September, and fortunately Eastman ATV was able to reschedule the lost summer rides to the Fall.The Fall ride dates provided a full schedule of rides, less one. With the hard work of the Ride Crew, we had our last ride of the season this past Saturday.The weather was perfect. Without any rain or dust, the ride was very enjoyable in the Belair Forest.

Membership with the Eastman ATV community, provides opportunities to enjoy riding the trails with a friendly, sociable group of people. Our rides are rain or shine, except for freezing rain. Otherwise, we ride in all types of weather. It has been a rich year of experiences, on and off the trail with Eastman. I have developed new friendships and along with my old friends,we have enjoyed this riding season. Because of our ride schedule and the ability to follow Eastman ATV on Facebook, we have a record number of memberships.
Currently, we are in hunting season, so consider waiting until December to ride. If you are intending to ride, for safety reasons, consider wearing bright colors, not camo.
The ATV Ride for Mom has had its kick off meeting, the event is scheduled for June 4th 2022. We are looking for a few people to lead. Donations, Media, Photo / Videographer, and Parking are four positions that we need help with.
