Have You Got the Mindset to Take on a Mountain Bike Epic?

Sure, a day of singletrack mountain biking at the weekend will sharpen your bike skills . . .But view it more as a means to an end.

What if your ride gave you the chance to take on Mother Nature head-on, in her own back yard!

“Epic is more than just a route or a race, it is a growing experience. It isn’t just about pedalling for a few minutes, seconds or beating a competitor. . .

It’s about the journey and all that it entails, learning about yourself, making friends, being helped, and of course, helping others along the way”

There’s an Epic route or Race on every Continent, some well known and some yet to be discovered.

From prepared singletrack to outback routes. From the 7 Staines in Scotland to Nepal’s high altitude routes, with the Alps and Rockies thrown in for good measure. The jury is still out on Urals and of course the Sleeping Dragon – China.

With interest for these multi-stage Epics growing, more quality now appear on the calender. The Canadian BC Bike Race is a relative new comer, promising to challenge the established hard-core classics, the TransAlps and the Trans Rockies Challenges, the Cape Epic, and the Mother of all Epics, La Ruta de los Conquistadores.

However, majestic scenery, fantastic mountain biking, and successful teamwork comes at a price. Mountain bike skills, personal physical and mental toughness and teamwork need to be sharpened beyond that of your average weekend warrior.

Training, guts and determination are a must if you stand any hope of staying the course.

Sure, a day of singletrack at the weekend will sharpen your bike skills . . . but have you got what it takes to take on an Epic?
