ANNUAL GREEN RIVER RIDE 1976-2013
May 2-4, 2013
Rev 06 May 2012
The Green River Ride, formerly the Tenmile Wash Ride, is ideal for the whole family and has been for 37 years. Hosted by the Utah Trail Machine Association (UTMA) participants of all ages are invited to attend. Staging is at White Wash located twenty-five miles SE of Green River, Utah—look for our UTMA presence. The gathering of families and friends creates a delightful atmosphere for all in attendance. Seasoned veterans enjoy renewing friendships with stories and memorabilia of past Wash rides while rookies make new acquaintances.
A variety of terrain presents exciting trails for dirt bikes and ATVs alike. There will be those in attendance who can direct new-comers on accessing trails in the area. No organized rides by UTMA are planned— riding is on your own in small groups.
