COVID-19 Update:  While we await restrictions to be lifted, we are working on an upcoming adventure tour schedule for 2021. 

Canada Rides 

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. 

Programs

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

CASI Certification

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 Certification

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:

  • hill climbing

  • log obstacles

  • 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.
