It happens to us all, well, those of us who buy a 4×4 vehicle and realise how much fun they are to drive. We all start off as simple owners but before you can say “waffle boards” you are looking at mods for your truck to squeeze more potential out of them, but you also start looking at legitimate organisations that can help make your off roading experience even better.
There are a couple of organisations in the UK, the one we’re looking at today is GLASS.
On their website, they state that;
“GLASS is the National User Group for those who enjoy using the Country’s network of ancient unsurfaced public roads and vehicular rights of way. We are a not for profit association dedicated to driving, protecting and researching our unique heritage of unsurfaced public highways. We promote legal and responsible driving as a way of enjoying the countryside, campaign against irresponsible use and aim to keep them open for all to use.”
The GLASS story started in 1995 and since then GLASS have evolved to become a responsible organisation that help keep the green lanes of the uk, Green!
GLASS operates a paid membership platform, and they offer members access to regular news and updates via bulletins and their bi-annual magazine, and additionally offer access to their impressive online database of green lanes in the UK.
They often exhibit at shows, looking to recruit new members to help them grow the organisation – they do not host their own off road events as Green Laning itself is better carried out in small groups due to the narrow lanes available and also so as to not disturb the natural surroundings too much.
