AMTRA rides are graded at 4 different levels. The following is a description of each of the levels.

Level 1: For riders with little or no trail riding skills.

Level 2: For riders with skill levels above those of a beginner and usually easy rides with lots of assistance given.

Clubman: For riders with average skills and the ability to cope with most terrain and bike repairs
(Punctures, broken levers etc). Assistance given if required.

Experienced: For riders with the ability to cope with all terrain with little or no help unless asked for.
Experienced grade rides usually cover longer distances.

The last thing we want to do is take you out on your first AMTRA ride and have you not enjoy it. Consider your skill level carefully and start out on an easier grade of ride.

Remember that extremes of weather can change the level of a ride from easy to hard and vice versa.
If you are unsure, contact one of the new member officers or ride leader for further information. Phone numbers are on the front page or pre ride notices.

AMTRA recommends that all riders should be self sufficient, and that the following Items should be carried on every ride:

Small personal First Aid Kit, front and rear (or 19”) tubes, puncture repair kit, tyre levers and pump, set of spanners to suit your bike, throttle and brake cables (if appropriate), clutch and front brake levers, gear lever, epoxy repair kit, tape, short length of wire, tow rope, small length of chain, joining link and chain breaker, waterproof matches or lighter and DWF fluid.

All these items can be stored on the bike and take up little room if packed properly.
