At Bristol Activity Centre we deliver safe, high quality quad bike treks around the undulating terrain of our urban venue using only top quality, fully insured machines. We provide full instruction, and you will learn how to maneuver and control your quad bike with confidence. This experience is suitable for a complete quad novice. But is also challenging enough for a person who has gained previous quad biking skill.
Before the first part of your trek, all participants are given a safety briefing with instruction on how to use our automatic 300cc off-road quad bikes. You will also be kitted out with all standard safety equipment needed – helmets, gloves and overalls.
A basic skill trail will start with you driving in and out of poles, enabling you to get used to the controls, and then drive around the tight turns at a faster speed. After this is complete, we will then take you off and around our main quad trek where you’ll hone your skills at controlling your bike on various terrains. You will each get a total of 25 minutes minimum on the quad bikes, followed by a short "Successfull Handling Skills & Trek Achieved" presentation for bring yourself and your bike home unscathed. Participants need to arrive ‘no earlier’ than 15 minutes prior to their arranged time, to allow for our safety briefing and to kit up.
Is it a race?
No, at Bristol activity centre we run a quad trek. Although our 300cc quad bikes can reach some fantastic speeds, we focus more on the driving skill aspect. You will drive varied terrain such as dirt tracks, woodland, grass field, and a long straight road, we take you up steep inclines and down hills.
It’s an exhilarating trek around a large track which will really test your driving skill, and for those with more advanced capabilities our track extends with additional routes which will put your skills further to the test to navigate the trek.
This Trek is suitable for the complete novice who had never driven a quad before, right up to those with experience. We take the trek at your pace and it’s all tailored to your skill.
What Should I wear?
We provide coveralls for you to wear on top of your clothes, along with gloves and of course a full face helmet. You will need suitable closed toe footwear – preferable sturdy boots, or trainers with grip.
Is it muddy?
Generally not, because we drive over a varied terrain which covers woodland, concrete road, cobbled stone roads, and fields. But we still recommend bringing a change of clothes just in-case you get wet from the rain.
Are they easy to drive?
The Quad bikes are very easy to drive for novices, they have a reverse gear, a low gear to climbing those hills, and a high gear for when you want to go a bit faster – simple!
Please note, we ask for a deposit at the start of your trek – this is a security deposit to ensure that there is no deliberate dangerous or careless driving which may damage our quad bikes. Of course we understand that accidents happen, and we are of course fully insured, but this is to prevent unnecessary/malicious damage.
