I have been a big fan of hiking trails for a long time, but lately I have been a little bit disappointed with how little I get done when I go. You see, when you go on hiking trails on foot, it might take you all day – or several days – just to complete one trail. I needed a faster, more exciting way to spend the day in nature. After all, I love hiking but I really don’t have that much time. That is how I took up mountain bike riding.

Riding on mountain bike trails is one of the most exciting things that I have ever done. The great thing about mountain bike trail riding is it that combines the excitement of extreme sports with the beauty of nature. People who ride mountain bike trails get it all – they can spend the day breathing in the fresh forest air, while simultaneously enjoying one of the most extreme, outrageous sports that there is. You just can’t get any better than that!

The only problem with mountain bike track riding is that it takes a while to get to the better trails. Even for those of us who live in a very bike friendly place such as Oregon – my home – mountain bike trails are still usually a good drive from any major urban center. Although there are many foot trails that also allow mountain bike riding, many other ones do not. Sometimes it can take hours to get to the best mountain bike trails. If you really want to take good mountain bike rides, you might have to be willing to devote a whole day to going on a bike trip.

One of the most important factors in whether or not you enjoy riding on mountain bike trails is how good of a bike you have. It makes a huge difference!. Good mountain bikes have shocks on the front and rear wheels which will significantly cushion your ride. They will make you stick to the trail better, giving you more control on the downhill. Eventually, if you ever get serious about riding mountain bike trails, you need to get a good bike and that is that. A good mountain bike can cost 800 dollars or even more, but it is worth the investment. It will give you a great way to have fun while getting an excellent workout at the same time.
