There are only a few times when we have heard excuses from people not to climb a mountain bike, but we are not being fooled. We want to see the world using the bike, I want to see more-new-worlds in the mountains and for this reason I will write to you top reasons why mountain biking is something you should have tried before.
Mountain biking or MTB is challenging. There will always be a technical point you will want to overcome either uphill or downhill. It will never be easier as you will always ask for more from you and from your bike. So if you like the challenges and the joy they give when you overcome them then mountain biking is a sport, a hobby that you have not tried so badly so far!
It will travel you to unique places. One can argue that hiking can also travel to humans, but we'll say that with the bike everything is getting a bit faster. Believe us how to ride one of your neighboring mountains with a bicycle will be a unique experience as you become "one" with nature and you will feel it filling you. And it's not just nature or sight. It is the freedom and peace that you will feel when you are on your bike in a lush green place with the only sounds you will hear being birds.
Of course, every walk - almost - ends with a frozen beer. Mountain biking does not always have to do with absolute performance or with who gets first to the top. It has to do with fun; it has to do with calmness and good company. What better then after a beautiful day in the mountain with the ladies cruiser company to end the walk in some shady corner with frozen beer and couscous for the day that passed?
You get away. You forget the bustle, you forget the cars, and you forget the problems. You leave them all behind you when you ride on a mountain bike - and if you can not leave it alone behind you, it often causes you the route with its challenges or beauty. As long as you are on your bike, all you care about is how it will be to keep this mood forever. Mountain biking is the best way to get away from your daily routine, to find the peace you need to avoid being crazy by the obligations.
You will be in a great shape. At first you may not like at all that there are hills and you only want to downhill, but over time you will see that the more time you spend on your bike, the more pleasant you will feel. You will improve your physical condition and every time you will ask a little more. The points that make it difficult for you to make your first walks will make you laugh but also feel impressed by your progress. Do not think you will only exercise your feet. The whole body is activated when you are on a mountain bike.
You do not have to carry the back-pack. The bicycle jersey now has plenty of space to carry the basics for a short ride, as well as most new mountain bikes - regardless of category - now have space for at least one bottle. Those who have not tried to ride without the backpack can not understand how much more relaxed you feel.Leave the car in the house. Start your walk from your home, ride up to your destination and I am sure - even in the city to be your route - you will find several points that will make you smile. Surely you will not say no to a short walk after the job, if you know a pretty fun way!
