Rider Checklist

When going riding, it is smart to have a rider checklist. Our rider checklist lists the most important things to remember before you leave to go riding.

Planning:

  • Plan where you are going to ride. Do you want to go for just a day ride, or take a weekend trip? Check out our trail directory to get information on the destination you choose.
  • Make hotel or camping arrangements if you’re going for the weekend.
  • Invite other family members or friends to join you.
  • Research the trails and areas where you will be riding. Print out trail maps or directions of the destination you choose. You can find that on our trail pages.
  • Shop for and pack food, water, medicine, sunscreen, bug repellant, and any other essentials you might need.
  • Let someone else know where you are going that is not going with you.
