The start of a new year brings the perfect opportunity for you and your family to start doing something new. Starting something new offers you the opportunity to pick yourself up after the end of the Christmas season. It also allows you to try something that you may not have had the encouragement to do earlier on in the year. The same goes for your children, give them something to look forward to before they go back to school by letting them try something new like quad biking.

Below is a list of the top five reasons why you should encourage your child to take up quad biking in the new year.

1. Quad biking for kids isn’t as expensive as you think.
It is often assumed that quad biking is an expensive hobby. First of all, the most expensive thing about quad biking is purchasing the quad. You can purchase affordable quad bikes from many specialists offering excellent deals and packages for beginners.

2. Purchase a starter quad bike for new riders.
Quad bikes are available in a range of different sizes and speeds, from mini quads designed for kids and adults who want to start with something a little bit smaller then a full sized quad bike. Quad bikes start from 50cc with a top speed of roughly 25 MPH to 150 cc which can reach the speed of 40+ MPH. For beginners it is highly recommended that you purchase a 50cc quad as this allows you to get used to controlling the quad easier when you restrict your speed.
