  • Bi3 Quad Bike Trekking!

    Bi3 Quad Bike Trekking

    On Saturday 18th November, the Bi3 team visited Walnut Tree Farm in Crewe to spend a morning Quad Bike Trekking. As most people will know Bi3 thrives on its stomach so following a McDonalds breakfast pit stop we arrived raring to go at the farm for a safety brief on the Yamaha Grizzly 350cc Quads. After some basic training and a skills test we set off on our adventure!

    The course consisted of multiple types of terrains such as; hills, fields, bridges, steep inclines and declines, mud pits, streams and tunnels under the M6 (nice not to be on it for a change!) – leaving us all very wet and extremely muddy! One crash later, we headed back to change into some clean, dry clothes and of course get something to eat! The White Lion Inn at Barthomley was a great find for some traditional food and great ale.

    A fantastic day of team building that we would thoroughly recommend www.quadbiketrekking.com
