Our school quad bike sessions are suitable for children aged 10 years+.
The sessions start with a full safety briefing and instruction on quad bike controls. In small groups of 4 or 5, children begin on one of our woodland Quad Tracks which consist of many varying challenges to test all levels and capabilities.
If your group masters our track assault course quickly they will be taken on woodland treks designed for the age group.
Quad Trekking is a fun and exhilarating activity as part of a School Activity Day or School camp, developing students independence and confidence as they rise to the challenge of mastering this new skill.
Please note the maximum weight for riding our quad bike is 20 stone.
Minimum Height - 124cm (4' 1").
We use 90cc bikes for children aged 10-15 years, and 125/150cc bikes for 16+. However, our policy is to ensure that the quad bike is the correct size for the person. If our instructor feels that a child or teenager would be safer on a larger bike then we will use one of our 125cc/150cc bikes with this child/teenager. Equally any riders aged 16+ that our instructors feel are too small to handle a 125/150cc bike will be asked to ride a 90cc bike. Our instructor will always discuss and agree this with the organiser/ teacher.
To cater for all abilities, the bikes are operated with automatic clutch and gearbox, so there is no need to change gear.
You will be given a safety talk and full practice session on the training quad tracks. In the case that we do not feel that participants are "confident or competent" enough to go trekking we will continue the session on the training course. Our client safety comes first at all times.
