The Cowichan Valley ATV Club is an affiliate of the Provincial ATV association, ATVBC. There are five other ATV clubs on Vancouver Island (Alberni Valley Hill Climbers, Sooke, Nanaimo/Mid-Island ATV Club, Comox Valley ATV Club, and Campbell River ATV Club) and 37 other ATV Clubs on the mainland. Together we form an organization that meets regularly to ride ATVs and organize other related events. This provides a forum for social interaction between like-minded outdoor enthusiasts. CVATV has 230 members from a South Island area that encompasses Victoria, Saanich and the Cowichan Valley to Ladysmith
We are striving to promote our sport in our local communities as a responsible, fun, safe, and challenging recreation that is suitable for almost anyone. Our goal is education of the public and other riders about the fun of ATV riding in a safe and environmentally diligent manner. We as a Club are united in our approach to private landowners and government leaders in attempting to gain ATV access to private/restricted lands and promote sustainability of the ‘sport’ for Members and future generations.

Hi, please consider this a request for information on joining the Cowichan Valley ATV Club. While I currently do not own an ATV, my wife and I enjoyed ATV riding for several years. We sold the ATV after my wife was no longer able to ride due to an ongoing back problem. I since purchased an adventure motorcycle and am looking forward to continuing exploring off road on my own. I understand in order to access Mosaic Forest, one must be a member of an approved club, hence my request for membership.
Thanks for any information and consideration you can provide.
Unfortunately Mosaic has excluded dirtbikes from the agreement. The following comes from the agreement.
“ATV” means a single-operator four wheel all-terrain vehicle designed and manufactured for off-road use, informally referred to as a ‘quad bike’, ‘quad’, ‘utility terrain vehicle’, ‘side by side’ or ‘four wheeler’, and includes “sit on” and “sit in” ATVs, but expressly excludes 2 wheel motorcycles, informally referred to as ‘dirt bikes’, and vehicles referred to as ‘dune buggies’, ‘mud buggy’s’, and other home-built or modified 4×4 vehicles;
Darn, that’s most unfortunate (for me and other responsible Adventure bike riders).
Thanks for taking the time to reply and provide that information.
Am assuming then that all the Facebook posts I see from folks on motorcycles on Mosaic property is done so illegally then??
I’ll follow up with Mosaic direct to see if they will grant special permission.
Not sure you received my reply as I had some issues with send so am resending here just in case. Darn, that’s most unfortunate (for me and other responsible Adventure bike riders).
