Travel & Recreation: Bicycle Trips

Mountain Biking Basics
As you are most likely aware, biking can take on many forms, from the sleek and thin lined racing bikes, touring bikes, fat tired beach cruisers, hybrid cross designs, trickster bikes, to your stout mountain bikes equipped with shocks. There's a certain feeling with biking that's unlike any other sport. Wind rushing through your hair, zipping around the neighborhood. For most, biking also holds a strong image of childhood, innocence, family and going for a ride in the neighborhood. Even as adults, going for a bike ride still brings out that mischievous child in us. And for the truly mischievous child, there is mountain biking.

The beauty of the sport, as one rider put it, was that your whole body is riding. Your mind is alert ready for sudden changes in the trial requiring quick adjustments. Mountain biking is more aggressive than off roading, which is more like a stroll in the woods.

Mountain biking is also a sport that will leave you totally spent. It is a great work out. Eat a good meal before you go. Bring lots of water, drinking it often throughout the ride. Take eye and head protection very seriously. There can be flying rocks as well as bodies. After your first day out, you'll wonder why they make 24 speed mountain bikes. You'll only use the two lowest speeds, and you'll be wishing for an even lower speed.
