Abstract

Elizabeth Peavey takes her first ATV ride with the Winnegance Wheelers and the Woolwich Wheelers, accompanied by Richard Barter, president of the Alliance of Trail Vehicles of Maine, and his son David. She experiences the appeal and challenge of the sport as well as the sense of community that club members feel and their desire to negotiate with those who oppose ATVs. Later, alone on an ATV trail that is closed to the vehicles for the winter, she wonders whether increasing access is threatening such rare stillness.

Subjects
