Join us for DGATV’s autumn colour ride!

On Sunday, October 6, 2019, DGATV will be staging from the Markdale lot (205 Main St. W., Markdale) and riding out once again to admire Grey County’s fall colours.

Registration starts at 9 a.m.  Ride leaves at 10 a.m.

In appreciation for our good fortune and this year’s harvest, riders are asked to contribute a non-perishable food item or monetary donation at the registration desk.  Proceeds will be directed to the Flesherton food bank operated by the Gentle Shepherd Community Church.

This ride is open to OFATV members and non-members. A day pass for non-members can be purchased at registration for $20.

Side-by-side vehicles are welcome.

Factory built two-up riding is legal. Single-rider bikes with added-on seats are not legal to carry a passenger.

For young operators, aged 12 to 16, the ATV should be sized appropriately for the child’s weight. The child must be accompanied by an adult on the trail. Legally, the child cannot ride on the road without a valid Ontario driver’s license (G2/M2). DGATV does not condone unlicenced operators riding on the roads.

Young passengers must wear proper fitting DOT-certified helmet and appropriate safety equipment on a factory built two-up. The law states that the youth must be able to reach hand and foot rests.

As with any ride, please have a full tank of fuel. It is advisable to have extra fuel, drinking water, snack, rain gear, basic repair tools, bandaids, compass, map and cell phone on hand.

We look forward to seeing you on the trail and hope you have a great ride!
