If you’re looking to experience the thrill of driving off road on rugged, muddy terrain to make the most of this warm summer weather, then our quad biking safaris are your best bet!
We’ve been busy following all the government-issued precautionary measures, to make sure our activity centre is back in action. Book your slot with us to enjoy off road cruising on our best off roading track and have the time of your life.
However, when it comes to quad biking, it is imperative to take all the safety measures into consideration.
In this blog, we have put together our 3 essential quad biking safety tips that you need to know.
Make Sure the Quad Bike is in Solid Condition
When it comes to your own quad bike, ensuring that it is in great shape is something you need to consider. This is because if any part of your bike is in poor condition, you might end up face down in the mud, or worse!
At Avalanche Adventure, we conduct regular maintenance checks on our bikes to make sure everything’s running as expected. We also ensure that they are equipped with the required safety features, such as hazard warning lights, speedometer, and brake lights.
Our safety checks include checking of tyre pressure, front and rear brakes, oil level, steering, and fuel level. That said, you can rest assured that all the ATV vehicles at our activity centre are completely safe and secure.
Check the Tyres of Your Quad Bike
Since you’ll be driving the quad bike on rough, muddy terrain, it’s important to check you have the right tyres for the job.
Typically quad bike tyres are categorised by 3 numbers, documenting the tyres’ height, width and rim size.
You’ll want to speak with a professional about what’s going to be best for your bike, but choosing the wrong tyres can damage your vehicle over time, so it’s worth spending some time getting it right.
As well as size, you also need to check the vehicle’s tyre pressure. That being said, you’ll likely want to have a lower than recommended PSI. This ensures your tyres have a larger surface area, perfect for riding on muddy terrain without getting stuck.
At Avalanche’s activity centre, all our quad bikes are maintained so that they can be driven on almost any type of terrain. Moreover, its overall design and strong tyres make it possible for you to drive them on concrete roads, rugged terrain, desert areas, mountainous terrain, grassland, etc. Not that you’ll find many deserts or mountains in Leicestershire!
Our experts ensure that all these quad biking safety tips are taken into account before each ride, so that you have the best possible experience.
Wear Protective Gear and Clothing
For every adventurous activity, it is vital to wear suitable protective gear and clothing. When it comes to quad biking, this is even more important as bikes aren’t equipped with seatbelts, roll cages, or weather coverings.
Your protective equipment should include a helmet, a pair of gloves, ankle-high footwear, goggles or visors for eye protection, and clothing with long sleeves and trousers to protect your arms and legs.
At Avalanche Adventure, when you come for a quad bike experience, we provide all the necessary protective equipment. After all, your safety is our top priority, only ahead of your enjoyment.
