10 Reasons to Join an ATV Club

atv club by hmcfabulous on FlickrAre you an ATV rider who wants to find the best trails in the country, or even the world? Are you interested in finding riders as passionate about ATVs as you? Are you often searching for info on the latest ATV gear and accessories? If you answered yes to these questions, you now have three reasons to join an ATV club.

Through an ATV club, you’ll meet like-minded people looking to have a good time on four wheels, stay updated on events, and get together for memorable trips. But before I give away every reason to join an ATV club, here are the top 10 reasons you should join one today.

  1. Information
    Riders learn more about ATVs in a club than they do on their own. Many of these clubs provide information on ATV safety, equipment, proper maintenance and tips on buying and selling ATVs. Beginner riders benefit by having all of their questions answered by a resourceful and trusted community.
  2. The Best Trails
    This could fall under “information,” but learning about the best trails near you is in a league of its own. With this knowledge, you and your friends can take your ATVs on a weekend or vacation of a lifetime.
  3. Activities
    Many ATV clubs organize activities big and small for ATV riders. Some are sponsored ATV races, while others are low key gatherings where riders, their friends and family can get together and have a good time.
  4. Classes
    Most ATV clubs also serve up weekly classes where you can refine your old tricks, learn a few new ones and get to know your ATV all over again. Sounds cheesy, but understanding your ATV through in-depth classes allows you to become a better, safer rider. And who doesn’t want to learn more about their ATVs?
  5. Swaps
    An ATV club is a community of trustful individuals, an atmosphere that’s perfect for selling or swapping ATV gear and accessories; or even for trading ATVs jsut for the weekend. Maybe you own a utility ATV, but are interested in getting a sport quad…Or maybe you have always been curious to see how the Maxxis Mudbug performs in mud. A club makes it possible to take others’ vehicles a spin so you can try out those tires or other vehicle types before you buy them.
  6. Exciting Friendships
    In any club, it goes without saying that you’ll create lasting friendships. But when you get together with friends who are passionate about ATVs, taking risks and creating new adventures, then you’ll never be for want of a good time. ATV Safari tours in Africa won’t seem so farfetched now that you have a group accompanying you.
  7. You Save Money
    If you’re in a club, you have access to resources that can save you money in the long-run. Not only do you receive information about the best ATVs, tires and equipment to withstand time and the elements; but as a club member you may get deals at mechanics and ATV shops. As long as you show proof of membership, you may be entitled to a discount. The same holds true for park access – you may qualify for a discount on seasonal and day passes.
  8. Private Trails
    One of the sweetest perks about joining an ATV club is having access to private trails owned by your affiliated club. Many ATV clubs use membership fees to create riding areas accessible to members only. When looking for a club near you, this is one incentive to look out for.
  9. Education
    We touched on the importance of education through safety and knowledge; but clubs also provide state-specific information like riding restrictions, state rules and lots of other valuable information needed before hopping on an ATV.
  10.  Networking
    The more people you meet through your club, the more likely you are to find influential people who can help you in a number of ways: from finding the best deals at a local mechanic, to kick starting your business ideas. Every club offers the chance to network and better your image in the social and business sectors. ATV clubs are no different.
