CAN I JUST RENT A BIKE TO RIDE WITHOUT A GUIDE OR INSTRUCTOR?
No – we do not offer bike rentals without a guide or instructor. Insurance regulations forbid it. We do offer individualized instruction by the hour.
WHAT IS MY RIDER LEVEL?
During sign in we ask your rider level, this is so we can put you in an appropriate group and offer training suited to your ability. We teach all levels of rider – but you must be able to ride a bicycle.
Here is a list of rider levels and what they mean:
Risk Tolerances – where you might fit in – We do our best to ensure that every rider gets training suited to their ability. By choosing a rider level, instructors assume you have the skills listed – We can always move you up a level – but moving down can be demoralizing. If you are risk averse, it is better to start a level below to practice and improve technique as opposed to “pushing the envelope” and potentially getting hurt.
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY AT TRAIL TOURS LIKE?
For the full day program, you will arrive at the base by 9:00am and begin the sign in process where you complete the necessary paperwork and make payment. After being outfitted with appropriate riding gear, you will be asked to attend a group riders’ meeting. By 10:00am all riders will be assigned to their appropriate groups and will begin their programs.
Beginner level riders typically spend the morning on our site learning the fundamentals of riding a dirtbike/ATV. More seasoned riders will be placed in a group of riders with similar experience. Advanced training techniques and a thorough warm-up/assessment will occur before the trail ride begins. Customers will have the opportunity to change groups based on either their riding level or their desire to accompany other members of their party throughout the day.
All groups will meet back at the base for 12:00pm for a 45 minute lunch break.
Due to COVID-19, the decision was made that Trail Tours will NOT be supplying lunches or drinking water for customers during the 2020 season. Customers will be responsible for packing their own lunches and drinking water. Trail Tours will not have any food or any beverages for sale.
- With the distance from our compound to restaurants or convenience stores, it would not be feasible for customers to leave our compound to visit restaurants or convenience stores to purchase lunches or beverages during lunch break.
- In the interest of the environment, we ask customers to pack lunches in reusable containers when possible.
- Coolers with either ice or reusable ice packs are highly recommend as we do not have refrigerators for customer use.
The afternoon ride will commence after lunch and continue until 3:30pm.
For the half day/evening program, you will arrive at the base begin the sign in process where you complete the necessary paperwork and make payment. (Morning half day riders arrive at 9:00am, afternoon half day riders arrive at 12:30pm, and evening riders arrive at 4:00pm.) After being outfitted with appropriate riding gear, you will be asked to attend a group riders’ meeting. Within the first hour all riders will be assigned to their appropriate groups and will begin their programs. Due to the reduced training time, we do not guarantee that beginning level riders will make it into the Ganaraska Trail System. Our facility has many trails for any level of riding.
IS RIDING GEAR IS PROVIDED?
After sign up we provide you with a full set of riding gear. Riding gear is crucial to stay protected when riding off road. We have a shipping container full of gear and can accommodate most sizes from child to adult.
Gear includes: helmet, goggles, head sweat, knee and shin pads, elbow pads, riding pants, jersey, chest protector, gloves, and boots.
Gear is washed between rides, if you have your own equipment feel free to bring it. You will need socks and undergarments.
