What do I wear?

Your helmet is mandatory and must be approved by the Department of Transportation (DOT). If your helmet is old or has ever been dropped, then it is time for a new one. A full helmet or dust mask is more comfortable when the weather is hot and dusty.

Other recommended equipment includes goggles, gloves, and boots.

As for “appropriate” clothing, well, that depends on the weather and the route. Some people wear running shoes, shorts and a T-shirt but for the most part that attire is unsuitable.

Dress to protect yourself from branches, stones, dust, bugs, wind, sun, and rain; from just simply being outdoors.

Dress comfortably because you will likely be straddling a bike for hours.

Dress in layers for the weather and the terrain — add a few items when you’re cold or it’s raining, and take off a few when you’re hot.

Riding an ATV in single-digit temperatures becomes extremely cold, similar to riding a snowmobile. Dress accordingly.

Also, it is good to have extra fuel, drinking water, snacks, rain gear, bug spray, basic repair tools, band-aids, compass, map and cell phone on hand. Note that there may not be cell service in all areas.

ATVing is a lot of fun. You get to go to places that you have never been before, travelling through some very beautiful areas. Enjoy your time in the great outdoors. Stay safe and have a good ride!

How old do I have to be to ride the trails?

To operate an OHV (Off Highway Vehicle) other than a snowmobile or dirt bike, the driver must be at least 14 years of age. If the drive is between 14 and 19 years of age, they must have completed an OHV Safety Training course. All 14 and 15 year olds must be supervised by an adult who has held a valid drivers license for at least 24 months or who has completed an OHV Safety Training course.

Anyone over the age of 16 may drive an OHV so long as they have a valid drivers license and have held that license for at least 24 months. If they have not held a valid drivers license for 24 months, they are still required to complete an OHV Safety Training course.

Operators of an OHV must carry a government issued registration for the OHV and must have a valid license plate attached to the OHV which must be visible anytime the OHV is off the owner’s property.

    What positions do people hold in the ATV FEDERATION?

    PEI ATV Federation  is a not for profit, volunteer run organization that requires many volunteers to operate.

    Executive/Board of Directors – responsible for directing the PEI ATVF’s operations.

    Trail Maintenance – always an excellent reason to get out on the trails! Trail maintenance continues until after the end of season . The PEI ATVF member clubs maintain around 350kms of trail.

    Administration – positions include Treasurer, Secretary, Webmaster, Communications, Membership and Event Coordinators. As is often the case, one Volunteer can wear many hats so the more people to share the workload, the better. If you have time for paperwork and enjoy organizing then make yourself known. Just be an enthusiast — you don’t need to own a quad!

    Sponsor Relations – always appreciated, our Sponsors defray our costs and bring interest and enthusiasm to our events. The PEI ATVF needs representatives to interact with our Sponsors, ensure that our appreciation is shown and to make our Sponsors aware of all opportunities. Another project on the To-Do List is to create a consistent Sponsorship Recognition Program.
