What you need to know about Mountain Biking Events
Mountain biking is riding bicycles off-road (as opposed to Road Cycling events) and often over rough terrain, using specially designed bikes with features designed to enhance durability and performance. Mountain biking can generally be broken down into multiple categories: cross country, trail riding, all mountain (also referred to as “Enduro”), downhill, freeride and dirt jumping. However, the majority of mountain biking falls into the categories of Trail and Cross Country riding styles.
Find the right Mountain biking event for you
Mountain bikers ride off-road trails such as singletrack, back-country roads, fire roads, and often venture to ski resorts that stay open in the summer for such activities. Because riders are often far from civilisation, there’s a strong ethic of self-reliance in the sport. Riders learn to repair broken bikes and flat tires to avoid getting stranded. Many riders carry a backpack, including water, food, tools for trailside repairs and a first aid kit in case of injury. Group rides are common, especially on longer treks. Map navigation skills will come in handy.
