How To Introduce New Riders to ATVing

Everybody remembers their first ATV ride. While ATV riding is inherently fun, itís remarkably easy for a new rider to have a bad experience and never want to try it again. Two of my friends were eager to give ATVing a whirl and I was bound and determined to make it an awesome experience, so I turned to the professionals.

This past winter I took my daughter snowmobiling with a company called Back Country Tours, which is located about two hours north of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. Everybody at Back Country Tours was so helpful and made the trip so fun, I figured Iíd hit them up again to help me introduce two friends from my archery club, Devin and Gord, to ATVs.

While I could have simply taken Devin and Gord out riding on my own, a touring operator seemed like the better choice for several reasons. First, I didnít have enough ATVs for everybody, and thereís nothing worse than sitting around watching other people ride while you wait for your turn. Another reason is safety. Instead of passing along any bad riding habits Iíve picked up over the years (we all have some), a good touring operator provides qualified instruction for new riders. As well, a touring operator wonít take riders to trails they arenít ready for. Nothing will sour a potential ATV enthusiast like an injury on the first day Ė especially for Devin, who is trying to make the Olympic archery team.

If I ever make it back to Canada I'll have to hit a couple of those places. I bet that craft beer would be good with Weber's Burgers.
