Photos: July 29th GRANT Ceremony and Concrete Ramp under construction
The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative congratulates the Fort Riley Directorate of Family, Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (DFMWR) for their completion of their All Terrain Vehicle Course Renewal and Improvement. The project involved the installation of two concrete staging ramps both at the entry gate and exit gate of the ATV course for safe deployment and re-deployment of ATV/OHV from vehicle transport trailers.
The GRANT ceremony was held on July 29, 2014, at which Yamaha presented the GRANT to USAG Fort Riley leadership. Construction on the project began on August 4 and was completed September 1. A ribbon cutting ceremony took place September 30, 214, and the site is opened October 2, 2014. Fort Riley DFMWR plans to later add a double-vaulted latrine and a covered training to further improve the services at the OHV area.
Fort Riley has 10,230 acres of designated training area with 32 miles of trail, 22 of which accommodate riders of all ages and experience levels. The ATV course provides off-road recreational space for Fort Riley soldiers, DA civilians, family members, retirees and guests. Fort Riley DFMWR issues ATV and dirt bike usage permits, vehicle access permits and informs users of daily check-in-out requirements on Fort Riley iSportsman.
The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative is proud to support Fort Riley Directorate of Family, Morale, Welfare, and Recreation in their efforts to provide safe and accessible riding opportunities to the soldiers, families, retirees and guests of Fort Riley, Kansas.
