Mountain Biking Trails - Bring Me That Horizon

May 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 189

That little itchy feeling when you cruise on your good old cycling road around your block. Like one hundred and second time? Isn't it? If your answer is "yes" then it is time to talk about mountain biking trails.

Where do you want to go today?

Your bicycle is a mechanical invention letting you to enjoy various cycling types and methods. If it sounds a bit strange, take a look at two different cycling machines - road bike and mountain bike. They are created for quite different roads.

Since this article is about mountain biking trails, I suggest we try to characterize each of them.

Forget your biking road around the block and begin with...

Cross country trails (XC trails) are probably the broadest type of trails. Like the name suggests, your path brings you through forests, plains, hills and... everything else you can imagine when you leave urbanized areas. Most likely you will be peddling on a single track.That means no intense traffic and more nature for you.

If this seems too easy and too relaxed for you, try something more challenging. Mountain biking trails called downhill (DH) trails and freeride (FR) trails. Since these trails are highly specialized, you should consider getting more "serious" bike. Downhill and freeride machines are something every mountain biker can be proud of.

Downhill and freeride trails are dangerous. Therefore you will get most adrenaline and joy riding on them. While both require extra skills and equipment, downhill trails are usually faster and rough (I believe it's the right word to describe downhill feeling).

Freeride trails are more technical.

Have you ever heard about bike stunts? If no, you will definitely learn them on your freeride trail. Handmade obstacles, various jumps and dropdowns. Already feel adrenaline in your veins?

Grab your bag pack

Mountain biking trails often lead you out of the city. Into the wild, if you like. It's called escape romantics. Mountain bikers love this feeling. However, be sure your escape will be safe and reasonable. You don't need to take a whole supplies team on your trail with you.

Bag pack filled with bike repair kit together with repair kit for yourself (it means first aid kit) some water supplies and a map should be enough for your first journey into the wild.

Surely, if you plan to ride more than one day and sleep in a tent without hot shower and your TV, your bag pack should carry much more necessary stuff than this.

One thing is for sure - take your first step. Find your perfect trail.
