Quad biking

Quad Biking is a type of Motorsports. The rider sits on and operates these vehicles like a motorcycle, but the extra wheels give more stability at slower speeds. Although most are equipped with three or four wheels, six-wheel models exist for specialized applications

Who is it suitable for?
Depending on the equipment available this activity can be suitable for all ages. Some providers have small low speed quad bikes and go karts which can be used by Beavers and Cubs whilst others will have more powerful versions which are suitable for older sections.

Additional Information
Don’t forget for all motorsports to wear a helmet at all times.
