145 – What’s One Thing You Wish You Knew Before Starting Mountain Biking?

Todays Guests:

We get advice from past guests of the podcast with answering a question I get asked from listeners on a regular bases:  What’s One Thing You Wish You Knew Before Starting Mountain Biking?

On episode #145 I thought I would reach out and ask a number of past guests of the show for their help answering a question I get asked from a number of listeners most weeks: What’s One Thing You Wish You Knew Before Starting Mountain Biking?

With lots of people dusting off their old rides, getting into mountain biking and hitting the trails for the first time (or the first time in a number of years), I thought it would be helpful to share some insider tips on how best to go about this and start off with the right foot (or pedal) forward. As always the past guests were happy to help out, record their answers and give you their advice on how to get out there, enjoy yourself and be safe on the trails (welcome to the MTB community, we are a friendly wee bunch).

There are a number of different answers, including awesome advise that will help you enjoy those first few rides and get you progressing at a safe and steady pace.

Tune in to hear from racers, trail guides, brand owners, National champions, top MTB fitness coaches, and many more on a number of things you should know before starting off on your mountain biking journey (and how to keep progressing).

Enjoy the show!

It was great to get past guests on the show to help out and hopefully it helps you out and you can ride with more confidence, speed, control, be safer and enjoy yourself more on the trails.
