Biking involves little planning and preparation as compared to other sports, but before you take your bike out there are a few tips you need to consider before going biking for the day.

Trails that are short don’t necessarily mean they’re easy. Factors such as length and elevation gain should always be considered as well as technical difficulty. Before choosing a trail, ask mountain bikers who are very familiar with the area to recommend trails that would be perfect for your skill level and also consider trails that you would like to be a little challenging, a little challenge never hurts anybody in fact in this sport it is highly recommended. Remember that taking new and unfamiliar trails should be taken with care and caution. Trails in the Summit Country are interconnected and requires range in skill level. But pushing yourself too much can never be good at the end, so don’t be embarrassed if once in a while you get off your bike and walk the rest of the route, you might be sparring yourself from scary situations up ahead.

Make you have protective gear on all the time, precautionary steps are a must do in ensuring you stay protected and safe all the time. The risk of injury is inherent in the sport of mountain biking, especially in the more extreme disciplines such as downhill biking. Therefore protective equipment is a must for every mountain biker. It can protect the rider against minor injuries, and reduce the extent or seriousness of major impacts. Helmets are not only considered as protective gear but is also a life saving device if you get into an accident. They’re usually well ventilated and lightweight so you wont even know that its there, make sure it is strapped snuggly. Biking could get more difficult when you have to reach and stretch farther for the pedals or handles, so you should consider that when you’re renting or borrowing from a friend. Make sure the parts can be adjusted to your specific needs.

Mountain trails can get very busy just like traffic on the roads. Mountain trails are open to other nature enthusiasts like hikers, nature photographers, and people going to their picnic destination or even horseback riders. A good courtesy to avoid collision and accidents is to call out your presence. Always remember to slow down when you’re turning on a blind corner. Make sure you’re not scaring the horses though, show consideration by dismounting your bike and taking a few steps downhill before getting on it again.

Colorado is home to many outdoor sports, but biking particularly have a special place. They’re host to state-wide races, bike festivals and longer and more interesting bike trails. Breckenridge in particular has one of the more exciting trails, so whether you’re a beginner or a professional, or even just a passing fancy at the moment you will never be disappointed in Breckenridge.
