Outdoor Travel and Mountain Biking Adventures

Bike tours and mountain bike travels are favorite ways to get around and see the world and enjoy the outdoors.  We try to keep up with road and trail bike news and related biking information.

A mountain bike is for off-road cycling but is often used for a variety of smooth and aggresive terrains. Ride across rocks, washouts, steep declines, on dirt trails, logging roads, and other unpaved paths and trails. These bikes should be built tough to handle off-road use with obstacles such as dirt, logs and rocks. Tires are wide and knobby for traction on uneven terrain.  Gearing may go up to 30 speeds for climbing and steep descents.

Get your bike, gear and get started.  Utilize the web to find riding trails in your areas or plan a trip around a location where you want to ride and see the country side.  Use the IMBA (International Mountain Bike Association) and other resources listed below to learn more about riding and finding places to ride.

Regardless of where you ride, close to home or far away, be sure to keep safety in mind.  Helmets, protective gear and cell phones are easy to forget.  Make a list of required items with safety in mind - hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.  A compact first aid kit and water are also essential for any bike adventure.

Start riding short distances and build your way up to longer treks.  Do not ride alone.  Find a friend or team up with a family member.  Be aware your strength, endurance and physical capabilities and use feedback from your body to determine how far you can travel.  Plan your rides and ride responsibly to ensure you are abe to stay in the game.
