Established on July 26, 1990, The Thunder Mountain Wheelers (TMW) ATV club of Delta, CO boasts of membership of over 150 members and growing. We are a tax-exempt 501c(4) Colorado nonprofit corporation.
WE BELIEVE IN: USING, NOT ABUSING OUR PUBLIC LANDS
We believe in having fun riding while promoting safe and responsible use. We are very active in preserving the privilege of riding on public lands by being involved in land use issues with the Federal Land Management Agencies.
Meetings are held the last Monday of each month from April to October. Topics covered include business and important issues pertaining to ATVs, as well as other OHV vehicle issues. We provide information on a variety of topics such as first aid, safety, survival, land use issues, legislation, political action, or anything else of interest to the membership. Guest speakers are often invited that offer expert advice and information on a wide variety of topics.
Join us for the next meeting at the Delta Trap club (1670 I Road) in Delta, CO. Enjoy a potluck dinner with brats, hamburgers and drinks. We ask each member to bring a covered dish or dessert to share along with their own dinner service. Visit with old friends and meet some new ones. After dinner stay for that months agenda and guest speaker discussion.
We sponsor two+ rides each month from April through October. Most rides are from 20 to 40 miles long and take the majority of the day. Lots of water and a lunch are recommended. Rides are at leisurely pace with many thumb breaks along the way. Sometimes a history lesson of the area is given by one of the “old timers”. No one is expected to ride beyond his or her ability. In case of an emergency, a fully stocked commercial first-aid kit accompanies each ride. Helmets are not mandatory, but are strongly recommended.
We have adopted many trails and lakes on the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forests. We have received numerous Colorado State Parks OHV grant funds to maintain our adopted trails including the purchase of Sweco 480 trail dozers specifically designed for maintaining ATV trails. This dozer is used the entire summer season to protect the resources with trail maintenance; re-construction and restoration keeping the ATV trails in tiptop shape.
