Organising a kids party is never easy at the best of times, so when my 12-year-old son decided he wanted to go quad biking I didn't know where to start. After speaking to one of the guys at Quad Nation they found me my closest site and ran through some of the different packages on offer, which made everything a lot easier. After confirming a date I booked a 2 hour quad biking experience for my son and three of his friends.
The boys had never been quad biking before and they were really excited about their quad biking experience, so luckily they didn't have to wait long. When we arrived at the site they were raring to go, but before they were let loose on the quads they had to get changed into a pair of overalls and sit through a short safety briefing. The briefing was fairly short and sweet though, and covered everything the boys needed to know before heading out on their trek.
With the briefing over it was time for the moment they'd all been waiting for – getting on the quads and exploring the countryside! After completing a couple of warm up laps the instructor led the boys out into the countryside, and even though I wasn't out on the bikes with them I could see there was lots of mud involved.
The trek lasted around 30 minutes and was tailored to younger drivers, which meant they skipped some of the harder obstacles and spent more time splashing through puddles and racing across dirt tracks. When the boys eventually made their way back to base they were absolutely covered in mud, which is definitely a sign of a good quad biking experience, and I could tell they'd all absolutely loved it.
After a quick change out of their overalls we headed home, but the entire car journey back was spent discussing the day in every last detail. The boys had clearly enjoyed their first ever quad biking experience, and next time I take them quad biking I'm definitely joining in with the fun!
