    Mountain biking is a great way to explore the outdoors,
    stay in shape, or just have fun. Racing down the side
    of a mountain is a lot of fun indeed, although it can
    also be quite dangerous. Even though it's dangerous,
    if you ride with caution, it can be enjoyed by the
    entire family.

    Styles of mountain biking
    Mountain biking can best be characterized into three
    different styles - downhill, free riding, and cross
    country. Even though the different styles are similar
    in some ways, they still require different skills. The
    style that you pick will determine the type of bike you

    Locations for mountain biking
    The sport can best be thought of as biking on an unpaved
    surface. Many areas throughout North America have
    specific locations designed for mountain biking. Before
    you decide to go down a trail, you should always check
    with your local park to get the routes, regulations, and
    any rules that they may have.

    You can also find groups that have mountain bike rides
    and competitions. You can look on the internet or even
    in a local paper and see exactly what's available in your
    area. You may be able to find groups for the more
    advanced riders as well as beginners.

    Becoming a great biker
    Endurance and stamina are a must for a great mountain
    biker. It will also take ambition and practice to succeed
    as well as conquer the course. Like all other sports,
    it takes time and practice. Those just beginning will
    have to get past the bumps and bruises from falling
    off the bike.

    Selecting your mountain bike
    The bike you select is more of a personal choice, and
    a big determining factor on the type of riding you will
    be doing. Bikes come in all styles, shapes, and prices,
    which will make selecting one for yourself very difficult

    You should use the internet to help you shop for a bike,
    even do some price comparisons online as well before you
    make a purchase. Before you buy a bike, always ask to
    try it out first. A great mountain biker will become
    one with his or her own bike. When buying, make sure
    you check for comfort, how it fits, even how it is geared.

    Staying safe when riding
    Mountain bike riding on unpaved roads can be very
    dangerous, as mentioned earlier. Anytime you are riding,
    you should wear a helmet, along with knee and elbow
    pads. If you are following a group or riding in the
    woods you should strongly consider a pair of goggles as
    well. Safety should be your top priority and never
    taken lightly anytime you are mountain biking.
