"All trail-access decisions are political decisions"

The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public lands through the electoral and legislative processes.
The TPAC tactical goal is to target key races using state-of-the art real-time analysis where there is a tough election and the pro-access candidate needs some extra support to help to defeat their opponent.
TPAC is needed to counter the anti-access special interests in Washington DC who have long ago figured that contributing to closure-oriented politicians is how they will accomplish their goal of restricting OHV access on federal lands.
TPAC is ready to stand in that political breach to stop the flow of anti-access politicians into the Capital. TPAC will work hard to reverse that trend so that pro-access legislators will exist as the majority in Congress and the White House.

What Inspires You to Join the Fight for Trail Access in the 2016 Elections?

With just a few weeks left until November 8, TPAC will be launching a 2-Day “What Inspires You to Get Involved in the Election” Fundraiser on October 18 and 19.

TPAC will be asking you to name your favorite OHV road, trail, open area, or person that inspired you to support our effort to elect pro-trail candidates in the 2016 election cycle.  .

As you know, Congress and federal regulatory agencies, such as the EPA, FS, BLM, and USFWS directly or indirectly control what vehicles we can purchase, aftermarket products we can install, or where/when we can recreate on public lands.

Loss of trail and road opportunities can even impact motorized access for folks who want to enjoy non-motorized activities such as mountain biking, hang-gliding, fishing, and equestrian use.

Funds raised will help TPAC support pro-trail federal candidates in the 2016 presidential election who need 11th hour support.

For a donation of $25 dollars or more, TPAC will list the first name, city, state, of donor and his/her favorite federal, state, county, or private trail/riding area/racing facility.   The list will be updated each day.  TPAC also has some of its new “Vote Trails” decals that we will send to you as well.

TPAC will take early donations and will include early donors when the fundraiser is launched on October 18.

You can donate $25, $50, $100, $200, $500, $1,000, up to $5,000.
