SVI’S GUIDED MOUNTAIN BIKING 101
To anyone who has been riding a bike since they were a toddler, mountain biking doesn’t sound *too* intimidating. After all, how hard can it be to translate road skills to the trail?
Well, actually, mountain biking requires more skill—and more of a learning curve—than one might think. That’s why we designed MOUNTAIN BIKING 101 for beginners.
- Go with someone who knows the trails: Following another biker will help you find the best line and the right speed. Also, it frees your mind to focus on riding, not directions. And if you happen to need a trail-side repair, you’ll be happy to be with a local guide!
- You’re in good enough shape to get started right now: Mountain biking is the ideal sport to ease into, even if you’re not at your physical peak. As it’s a mental exercise just as much as physical, your fitness level will naturally build up over time.
- It’s actually a lot safer than it looks: It might seem insane to ride through twisting, turning, narrow trails over rocks and down steep hills. It’s not. Riding a mountain bike is a completely different sensation than riding any other bike – it’s slower, more controlled, and much safer than it looks.
- It’s slower than it looks: When you’re just starting out, you’ll be clocking about 6-8 MPH… about the same speed as a slow jog. So don’t worry about getting out of control.
- It’s not just for adrenaline junkies: Those videos of people flying down rocky, curvy trails and doing big jumps? They’ve probably ridden that trail a few dozen times, and they’re usually professionals. For most of us, it’s more of a meander than a rush.
- Mountain biking is not like road biking: If you’re a road biker ready to venture into mountain biking, don’t be discouraged if it feels like you’re starting over. It may take a few twists and turns before you feel comfortable but you’ll get it!
- Stick with it: The first few trips on a mountain bike aren’t always easy. Once you are hooked you’ll slog yourself and your bike up steep hills, over narrow bridges, and down slippery rocks. Your shins will be bruised, and there will likely be a few cuts and scrapes. But you know it will all be worth it.
