Mountain Biking involves riding bicycles off-road, often on rough terrain, using specially designed mountain bikes (or MTB).
There are six main types of MTB riding styles – Cross Country (XC), All Mountain, Downhill, Freeride, Park, and Touring.
While mountain biking is often regarded as an extreme sport, it is increasingly popular as a form of exercise for all ages and abilities.
