a bit of history 

The Calgary ATV Riders Association members have been riding throughout Alberta for more than 30+ years.


In the early 1990’s the Rebels were bringing together a group of individuals who loved to ride and have fun. They organized rides and camping events for new and existing members.

In May of 2006 the Ghost Forest Land Use Zone (FLUZ) came into effect and in response to the restrictions placed on the trails in the Ghost Waiparous area the Calgary Quad Squad was established as a non-profit organization as a chapter of the Crowsnest Pass Quad Squad (CNPQS).

The Calgary Quad Squad worked hard in the first few years building a relationship with the Alberta Off-Highway Association (AOHVA) and Environment & Parks and is now known as a club with integrity and a provincial leader in the community that is environmentally conscious and a defender of multi-use trails.

On May 1st 2009 the Calgary Quad Squad officially changed their name to The Calgary ATV Riders Association.

This name change was to enable the Calgary club to individually access federal and provincial grant funding without impacting other grant opportunities for the CNPQS. The club has created their own logo, pamphlets, website and clothing apparel that we are very proud of.

Our stewardship initiatives have grown over the past years. We started from a single bridge in 2006 and today we are the only local ATV club in the surrounding area to have an agreement with Environment & Parks to work on trails and to enhance a rides experience in the Ghost PLUZ all while working in conjunction with the other organized active off-road clubs.
