To bike or not to bike...

They say mountain biking is the new golf. Golf clubs across the land are being relegated to dark corners of garages while their sleek and sophisticated cousins are taking pride of place boldly straddled to the backs of mud encrusted SUV’s.

The mountain biking bug is sweeping across the nation and there are a number of reasons we reckon you’d be happier peddling along a single track with the wind in your hair than finding yourself stuck in a sandy bunker, red faced and frustrated.  

Mountain biking is a real sport – it requires endurance, resilience and stamina. Your legs and heart will be pumping whether you’re navigating a piece of single track or hopping over boulders. You’re definitely going to lose those love handles and your legs will be worthy of any run-way model. 

Endorphins are going to flow – mountain biking makes people feel happy and your improvements will be noticeable. After you’ve pushed yourself to the top of a gruelling climb, you’ll be rewarded with an epic descent. It will be difficult to wipe that smile off your dial when you’ve ridden an entire route without having to un-cleat or use the “chicken-run”!  

Building better bonds – it’s a social sport and complements family life. Chances are your wife and the rest of the family will be eager to join you on your adventures and so you’ll get to spend even more time doing what you love with the important people in your life.

Freedom to explore – you get to spend time in “real” nature. We’re talking about trees, rivers, birds and bugs. Mud flying in your face, dirt sticking to your sweaty arms while you whoosh through a forest at breakneck speed. There are so many new places to discover and doing it on the back of your trusty steed is the perfect way to take it all in.

So what are you waiting for? Pump up those tyres, fill up your water bottle and head out into the countryside to reinvigorate your body, mind and soul.
