Mountain biking skills

Lean in!

Just saying, mountain biking can be a bit intimidating. A handy approach is to ask questions when unsure and know there is no such thing as a silly question. Remember everyone had to start somewhere and the most common questions are usually:

“What kind of bike do I need?”

“How dangerous is this sport?”

“Are there beginner trails?”

When first starting it can be overwhelming. Just hang in there!

 Like most other sports, you have to start somewhere and get on that learning curve. It might seem a bit steep at first, but once you commit to learning and stepping outside of your comfort zone, that’s when the real fun begins! If you ask around those other riders who have been mountain biking for years, they will probably tell you they still learn new things.  That’s a seriously great aspect to this sport – it’s never boring! We are excited to share some advice and tips around the gear you will essentially need to make your MTB experiences so much more rewarding. Let’s get this ride started and talk more about fun of mountain biking. 

Feel the difference!

Mountain bikes are designed for riders looking to change it up. Getting away from the norm of staying on the bitumen or bike path, to exploring the outdoors via a forest or dirt trail. That’s exactly what we do at About MTN Biking – we look to change things up all the time! There are plenty of review sites telling you they are the best. Well our team is more likely to tell you how DIFFERENT we are – not trying to be the best, just bringing an enthusiastic vibe. We are leaning into our own challenge of rounding up the more unusual tips and information that riders are looking for. Let us help to expand your boundaries and challenge your physical skills and endurance. 

” This sport generally starts out as a choice of riding style but very quickly becomes a passion as you discover more riding destinations and trails.” – Max Wheeler

We give you the information that creates the option of challenges – test your limits of speed, endurance and riding ability. Or just head out on a leisurely ride with friends whenever you like. How do this? At About MTN Biking we’ve tested and rated some of the more popular Mountain Bike Trails to help get you riding! And don’t worry, we’ve covered from Beginner Level Trails right up to the more gut wrenching Advanced Level.
