Play with your bike instead of suffering the track

Mountain biking is an activity that requires a good physical condition as well as a wide range of technical skills. The singletracks we aim to ride are full of obstacles more or less easy to jump over. Learn how to approach them to fully enjoy your ride.

Description

Going over an obstacle with your MTB

Crossing an obstacle and being able to maintain your back wheel motricity are helpful uphill. Frustration comes quickly when you trip over a stone, forcing you to push or carry your bike a few meters again and again. By working on your ability to fly over obstacles, going uphill will become a game with only one rule: “no foot down” !

If you don’t have your mountain bike with you, you can rent the Giant Talon 2 LTD 2017 from Legend CHX, more appropriate to get the basics of trials mountain biking.

Picking up the best line to ride with your MTB

Choosing the best line to ride with your mtb is a downhill exercise. Going faster pushes the rider to look further in order to anticipate the different obstacles and following the smoothest line. Working on your front wheel grip as well as your commitment is easier downhill.

If you don’t have your mountain bike with you, you can rent the Giant Reign 2 from Legend CHX which has a better geometry for downhill exercises.

Together, these two exercises will put more fun in your mountain bike rides!
