Quad Biking – The Ultimate Stressbuster!
With all the stress and uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, people have been looking for different ways to escape their worries. Some started baking banana bread: others became obsessed with the Joe Wicks workouts. But quad biking is also a fantastic stress buster. Getting outside, getting unplugged from social media and email notifications and the constant roll of news reports will do you the world of good!
The excitement of riding around on four wheels brings an adrenalin rush and a physical challenge that will help you unwind from day-to-day problems. And if it’s a sunny day, even better for a vital dose of vitamin D! Just remember to stay safe by wearing appropriate clothing, paying attention to the safety demonstrations, and listening to what your instructor tells you. Happy quad biking!
Go Karting Derby
With fantastic views of the hills around Buxton, this 500m outdoor karting track really is a gem. The track has great bends and corners and even an underpass/overpass to keep drivers on their toes! Known for their welcoming and friendly staff, Buxton Karting has been called the best karting track in the UK by reviewers on Google.
Whether you’re racing alone or want to get a group of mates together for a birthday or stag/hen do, they’re more than happy to accommodate parties. Events are held throughout the year, including Junior Grand Prix, Mini Grand Prix, Grand Prix, and endurance races. With 160cc and 200cc karts to choose from, you can turn up, suit up and jump in!
Quad Biking Derbyshire
Located in the heart of Derbyshire, Wild Park offers something a bit different when it comes to quad biking. They are an “extreme” quad bike trekking centre, with over 200 acres of land to explore. This means however many times you visit, you’ll never go on the same trek twice! There’s mature woodlands, swamps, brooks, open fields, mounds, and open arenas where you can really get some speed up. The standard 10-mile trek takes around 2 hours, or you can go for the extended 15-mile experience which takes around 2 and a half hours.
You’ll have loads of fun getting nice and muddy, but don’t worry about getting your clothes dirty as you’ll be provided with overalls as well as helmets and balaclavas. Whatever your level of ability, the fully automatic 400 cc Suzuki quad bikes couldn’t be easier to use. Simply control your speed with the thumb throttle and the only other thing you have to use is the brake!
Quad biking at Wild Park is an all-year round activity; whatever the weather, you can go out for a ride. Just make sure you dress for the weather you have, not the weather you want. At the end of a long ride you can have a hot shower in the on-site facilities and even hire a towel and shower gel if you’ve forgotten yours.
