New to the trails

Postby Pzito458 » Wed Oct 07, 2020 8:00 am

GM newbie to the forum and trails. I am looking for a good trail for dirt bikes for me and the kids. It will be our first time out this weekend. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on a good trail in Barrie. I registered on the OFTRA website.

Thanks in advance

Welcome! With new riders especially child riders you want to take it slow and be safe. I would recommend staying on the 2 track trails (wide) in the beginning and introduce some single tract as skills progress.The Strachan forest tract is a nice beginner area to ride. Personally I like the Wildman tract as there is significant 2 tract (ATV) trail to ride on and if feeling adventurous try a section of single tract.

This time of year be careful as the MX tracts begin to close and some Non Members start to show up and rip up and down the 2 tract.

Look for the Neo Rider training rides to return next season when Covid is less of an issue!
