There are many resources on the internet about ATV Safety and tips on how to ride an ATV. We recommend everyone take a hands-on basic awareness or certification program. For those of you that would like to get some basic information about riding before making a purchase or get some online tips about ATV Safety and Riding, here are some resources:
Ride Safe, Ride Smart
The primary goal of the Ride Safe, Ride Smart DVD is to demonstrate the safe and responsible use of ATVs thereby assisting in reducing accidents and injuries that could result from improper ATV operation by the rider. This nine-minute video is a rider-friendly look at how to get a proper start in ATV riding. It profiles two families; one who rides for recreation only, the other who uses their ATVs first for working on the farm, then as camping and trail riding machines. Both sets of parents lead by example, emphasizing riding an ATV that is right for your age, wearing proper protective gear and respecting the environment. They also recommend taking an ATV RiderCourse to get the most from your ATV, enjoy the opportunity to meet other enthusiasts, and find out about the best places to ride.
