THIS ACTIVITY IS "EXCLUSIVE" TO OUR BRISTOL, CRIBBS CAUSEWAY VENUE.
FEE PER PERSON
PARTICIPANTS MUST BE 18+ YEARS
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 manoeuvre 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 some previous quad biking skill.
The first half-hour of your session includes 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 and gloves, and be asked to complete a disclaimer.
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 30 minutes minimum on the quad bikes, followed by a short “Successful Handling Skills & Trek Achieved” presentation for bringing yourself and your bike home unscathed. Participants need to arrive ‘no earlier’ than 15 minutes prior to their booked timeslot.
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 terrains such as dirt tracks, grass field, and a long straight road. We take you up steep inclines and downhills.
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 some experience. We take the trek at your pace and it’s all tailored to your skill.
What Should I wear?
We provide safety gloves and of course a full face helmet. You will need suitable clothing, we recommend full-length trousers (no shorts) a long sleeve top and closed toe footwear – preferably sturdy boots, or trainers with grip. Participants not appropriately dressed may be excluded from participating, although we do sell disposable coveralls if required.
Is it muddy?
Generally not, because we drive over a varied terrain which covers concrete roadways, 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.
