Downhill Mountain Biking

Downhill Mountain Biking Resort

Mountain biking is mostly riding off road, but much of the time you are riding on backcountry dirt roads, service roads and trails. A mountain biking experience is usually slower than road biking, and dustier. The bicycles are different and designed to do a special job; ask your guide what type of bike you will need.

Downhill Mountain Biking Resorts are usually a ski resort that has groomed trails and gondolas or chair lifts that take you and your downhill mountain bike to the top of the hill so you can ride down. They usually have rentals and require you purchase a trail pass.

Perhaps you were motivated by seeing other mountain bikers out riding and having fun. If downhill mountain biking is new to you, many guides have several trips that are the perfect introduction. You will need to learn some basic shifting and braking skills. With most downhill mountain biking tours you don't have to carry anything on your bike. The support truck carries all the food, gear and runs the shuttle so you can get back to your car. You can use your own bike or rent one, but you will need to purchase some good cycling apparel and shoes. You get to relax after a day of downhill mountain biking with a cold beer.

Mountain biking is a great way to meet people and the longer the ride the more time you have to get acquainted.
