No matter what activity TRAIL KIDS are involved in, there is essential equipment that is worth investing in and other equipment that can be picked up or improved on as you get more involved. There are many things to consider when selecting equipment. Here are some basics. And please, if you have any questions about gear, ask your coach or local gear shop. We want equipment decisions to be easy for you, so each club cooperates with local shops to help define specific equipment that will work for your adventures.

A big consideration for clothing is the weather.  Wearing just the right amount of clothing to stay warm but not too warm is a balancing act that you will get better at the more you ride, run, or ski. Layering clothing can be a helpful tool in achieving this balance. Remember that if you will be near cars or other sporting enthusiasts, it is helpful to wear bright and reflective materials that allow you to be noticed.
