Good Conduct

Family Friendly - Battle Born Cruisers is a family friendly club. We do not support or allow lude behavior, harassment, racial, sexual, religious, or disability related joking or other forms of hazing, harassing, bullying. We celebrate the diverse background of our members and strive to be a place to escape the social intolerances of our world. All members are required to respect other members even if they do not agree with one another. Public nudity or sexual displays will not be tolerated.

No Drugs or Alcohol - Use of drugs (legal or illicit) or alcohol while driving on the trail or public roads is strictly prohibited. If you are caught driving while under the influence you will be asked to leave the trail and be removed from the club. We will also immediately notify the authorities of your actions. Note that mild social drinking at the end of the day at camp is acceptable as long as our family friendly policy is not violated.

Tread Lightly!

Battle Born Cruisers respects the Tread Lightly philosophy and requires all members to adopt the same person philosophy. The T.R.E.A.D. Principles are critical to ensuring that we do our part to keep public lands open to offroad enthusiasts now and in the future. We require all members to:

  1. Leave the trail and campsite better than how we found it. This includes picking up trash left by others.

  2. Stay on the trail! Deviating from established trails diminishes the beauty we seek to enjoy and diminishes it for others.

  3. Pack out what you pack in! This includes solid human waste.

  4. Carry spill kits and catch cans and mats for trail repairs.

  5. Participate in club cleanup events and trail adoptions.

Honor the Bylaws

Our bylaws are key to good organization and management of our club. Please read them and honor them, and help others, even officers to do the same.
