Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and social distancing orders, we have not scheduled any training courses yet for 2020. We had hoped to have a schedule by now and to begin training by April 25th, but clearly that isn’t going to happen. We had hoped to launch our Canada Rides Adventure Tours at the SCORRA Winter Whiner, but we are putting that on hold as well. Our hope is to be able to offer you training and tours by late summer, early fall. We will be monitoring the situation and will provide updates on our schedule on our website, Facebook and Instagram. Until then, we will keep dreaming of off-road riding.
Canada Rides is a training school created to introduce dirt bike, ATV, side by side and adventure riders to their respective sport in a safe and informative manner.
Courses will run throughout the riding season, typically from May 1-November 30.
Canada Rides has a variety of programs to suit the budding off-road rider.
MSF Dirt Bike School
MSF Dirt Bike School is a curriculum based on the Motorcycle Safety Foundations (MSF) off-road course. The course consists of:
One-day hands-on training session
Teaches basic riding skills and responsible riding practices, including risk management and environmental awareness
After successful completion of the course, riders will receive an MSF DirtBike School completion card and the Tips and Practice Guide for the Off-Highway Motorcyclist booklet
The CASI (Canadian AQCC Safety Institute) Training curriculum was developed by the All-Terrain Quad Council of Canada (AQCC) in conjunction with the ATV Safety Institute (ASI) and the Canadian Off-Highway Vehicle Distributors Council (COHV). The CASI training course consists of:
Half-day hands-on safety training teaching basic skills required for safe and responsible ATV operation
Emphasizes safety awareness and responsible riding practices
After successful completion of the course, riders will receive a guidebook and a certificate
ROHVA (Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association) Training course consists of:
3-hour on-line safety training component (to be completed prior to hands-on training day)
Half-day hands-on safety training
The course addresses basic operation and emphasizes safety awareness related specifically to ROV operation
After successful completion of the course, riders will receive a completion card, handbook and certificate
Adventure Bike Training
Our adventure training is designed for riders who want to master handling their adventure bikes in off-road conditions.
Purchasing an adventure bike, insurance and gear is an expensive investment. It makes sense to have professional instruction in using your bike in off-road conditions.
Topics covered include:
maneuvering through single-track
Whether you’re a first-time rider looking to enter the sport, or an experienced rider looking to improve a specific skill set, we have a course for you.
If you would prefer one-on-one instruction, or customized group training, please contact us today!
