From Farm to Fun Machine: the ATV Evolution

When you consider the humble beginnings of the ATV - a 'farm to town' vehicle that could also be used as a workhorse in the 'back 40s' - the current ATV explosion as a year-round adventure machine is all the more remarkable.

When you consider the humble beginnings of the ATV - a 'farm to town' vehicle that could also be used as a workhorse in the 'back 40s' - the current ATV explosion as a year-round adventure machine is all the more remarkable.

And there really is no other word to describe the ATVing phenomenon other than: Explosive.

After toiling in the shadows of snowmobile sales for almost thirty years, in 1996 ATV sales eclipsed those of snowmobiles and today, ATVs outsell snowmobiles by a margin of four to one. According to the Canadian ATV Association, there are now more than 20 million ATVs in use in North American -- and percentage wise, a disproportionate number (3 million) have been purchased by Canadians.

Every month, as 8,000 new ATVs are sold in this country, the number of ATV associations, tour operators and travel experiences continues to grow. It 's in response to this unprecedented demand (which by the way, is almost evenly split between men and women and age groups ranging from teens to Gen-Xers to Boomers to enthusiasts now in their golden years), that ATV Ontario was created.

So what is at the root of the ATV explosion? Some industry analysts believe it's being driven by the Generation Y set and their gravitation toward cooler, sportier quads vs. snowmobiles and even motorcycles. But as we've already pointed out, this is a sport where age or sex stereotypes don't apply.

Closer to the truth is the likelihood that multiple factors are conspiring to make ATVing irresistible to tens of thousands of new users each month, from the thrill of the ride, to the desire to reconnect with nature, to the camaraderie that is inevitable in a sport that is closely tied to the discovery of new trails, new friends and just plain joie de vive.

Moving forward (or perhaps more appropriately, four-wheeling forward) ATV Ontario is also helping to revolutionize the ATV experience by providing people who have a passion for this past time with an unprecedented offering of great trails, eclectic travel experiences and memories of a lifetime.
