Good 2 Go?

There are more than 20 errors in the picture below. Can you spot them all? Riding an off-road vehicle can be a fun, exciting activity, but it's important to know how to ride safely. Below are some safety tips to follow to help ensure a safe trip every time!

  • Always wear an approved motorcycle helmet. A bicycle or hockey helmet is not good enough!

  • Always ride sober! No alcohol or drugs before or while riding.

  • Be prepared! Carry a cell phone and emergency kit that includes a map, flares, flashlight, compass, blanket, first aid supplies, matches and a sounding device.

  • Always wear proper eye protection, not sunglasses. A face shield or goggles are best.

  • Always wear protective clothing; boots, gloves, pants and a long sleeved shirt or jacket.

  • Conduct a pre-ride inspection before heading out. Check oil and gas levels, brakes, lights and winch.

  • Always obey speed limits! A maximum of 20 km/h on roads with a limit of 50 km/h; a maximum of 50 km/h on roads with a limit of more than 50 km/h.

  • Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for passengers. They can affect the stability and control of the off-road vehicle.

  • Carry your documents; registration, insurance and driver's licence when riding on roads.

  • When travelling on roads, ride on the shoulder and in the same direction as traffic.

  • To ride off- road, you must be at least 12 years old unless under close adult supervision.

  • To ride on roads, you must hold a valid G2/M2 licence or greater.

  • Always ride within your ability and know your limitations. Consider taking a rider training course to become a skilled, confident rider.

  • Be a responsible rider! Ride in designated areas only, respect private property, watch for wildlife and keep noise levels low.

  • Young riders lack the physical strength, experience and cognitive skills to operate an off- road vehicle. Know their limitations and follow age and size restriction for specific types and sizes of machines.
