Welcome to The Cycle Conservation Club of Michigan!

The Cycle Conservation Club of Michigan is a non-profit organization committed to the conservation of our wild lands while promoting the sport of off-road motorcycling. During the riding season, organized “trail tours” are held at various locations throughout the trail system in the northern part of the state. In addition, The Cycle Conservation Club of Michigan sponsors the “Ultimate Trail Ride” – the Michael R. Burlingham Memorial Six Days of Michigan. Six full days of off-road riding – there’s no other ride like it anywhere in the world!

Your membership in The Cycle Conservation Club of Michigan includes a one year subscription to the Great Lakes TrailRider Magazine, a detailed map CD of the Michigan trail system, access to all CCC events and activities plus access to the members' section of this website.

ORV Stickers Beginning April 1, 2014

$25.25 ORV "License" – Required to ride on non-private property (eligible county roads, state forest roads in the Upper Peninsula, eligible national forest roads and the frozen surface of public waters).

$10.00 ORV Trail Permit – Required to operate on state-designated and signed ORV trails, routes and scramble areas (needed in addition to the $26.25 ORV license above to ride trails and routes with an orange triangle. Both the license and the permit are required on SOS licensed vehicles to ride trails and also some sections of Routes, ie. on Drummond Island). If you're riding a street licensed motorcycle on the Michigan ORV trail system...you'll need both ORV stickers beginning April 1.

Law enforcement will be looking for both stickers on the rear fender of any ORV riding the orange triangles on the trail.

Several bills of new legislation affecting ORVs in Michigan have recently been signed into law. See the Legislative page for details!
