Welcome To Lost Traction ATV & SxS Club

Lost traction became an AtvBC approved club in June 2018 and has grown to over 170 members as of April 2020. Our goals are aligned with that of the AtvBC policies:
● To promote and foster the sport of ATVing in BC
● To protect the access of ATV’s on public land
● To protect the environment
Most importantly we want everyone to meet new friends, explorer new trails and enjoy rides as a Club.
Our riding area is mainly in and around the Fraser Valley and Lower Coquihalla area. At least once a month the Club organizes an official Club ride for everyone to come and enjoy. In addition to these events many Club members invite others to join them on “Ad-Hoc” rides which can be found posted on our Facebook page.
The Club holds 5 to 6 meetings per year including a Saturday Social Dinner meeting and a Camp-out weekend meeting. We have great support from our sponsors and a strong Board of Directors committed to building Lost Traction into something that will make a real difference for its members, including improvements to the different areas that we ride.
Members have access to special savings from our sponsors. In addition, your AtvBC membership, will give you additional discounts on your ATV insurance and help support the hard work done by AtvBC as they act as a voice of our sport with the Government.
Thank you for visiting Lost Traction!
