The SLO 4-Wheelers, a San Luis Obispo County based club, was
formed in the spring of '94. The SLO 4-Wheelers has quickly grown to be a very active club, with
members who hail from all parts of SLO County. We're either out enjoying the trails, working to protect our access to them, or just having a generally good time at one of the many 4-wheeling events and social activities of the club. Membership is open to all!
A Little History
Activities include at least one monthly club run. Past runs have
included wild flower trips in the Carisa Plains, scenic cruises over the
coastal range, rock climbing in the Sierras (Coyote Lake, Rubicon),
and desert rides in the Paniment Valley.
The club also makes several day
runs to local area trails in the Los Padres Forest. It has been our
intention to try to have as many different types of runs as possible, so
whether you have a fully built trail machine or a stock sport-utility vehicle,
our club has something to offer you. We like leisurely enjoying our
natural surrounding area just as much as slowly crawling over boulders.
Presently the club has adopted two local trails and was involved
with CCORE, a coalition of local OHV clubs. We also maintain a working
relationship with the local Forest Service and have adopted a local Forest Service campground. We have been involved
with the USFWS & USFS in the local Condor Release Program, which occurred near
a local OHV trail, and participate in the San Luis Obispo Christmas Parade and local
Toys for Tots drive, Templeton 4th of July parade and the American Cancer Society Relay for Life among other activities..
The SLO 4-Wheelers club is also a member club in the
California Association of Four Wheel Drive Clubs. The SLO 4 -Wheelers, at the end of each year, donates all excess funds generated by the club to various organizations that work to to keep our Public lands open. Including United Four Wheel Drive Associations, Blue Ribbon Coalition, California Off Road Vehicle Association and others as funds allow.
Oh did I mention the General Meeting? No? Well it's held the first
Wednesday of each month at Denny's in Atascadero at 7:00pm.
All are welcome so come check us out! Have a good meal, listen to a bunch
of 4-wheelers make plans for more fun and meet one of the best groups of
folks around. Be forewarned, although you don't have to own a 4X4, if you
bring it to the meeting you'll probably have half a dozen folks crawlin' in
and on and under it!
