Be carefully in the mountain bike ricing
Now, more and more people prefer to mountain bike racing. Also, mountain bike racing is a great sport to promote health, stay fit and have fun without torturing yourself with intervals. But the most important thing is the security! We should be carefully during the mountain bike racing. If you are the beginner, please see the following tips. Maybe they can help you to avoid hurt.
Choose rides that offer appropriate terrain for your current level of fitness and ability.
Ride at a pace and effort that allows you to talk comfortably without gasping for air.
Ride with others who are close in fitness and ability as often as possible.
Change your rides and explore your environment. Discover new neighborhoods, trails and bike paths to keep things fresh.
Socialize as much as possible. Ride out to your local coffee shop or get a smoothie after a long workout. Enjoy good conversation with your riding partners and talk about something you have in common—like cycling!
Don’t be afraid to ease up when you find yourself going too hard. Slow down until you get your breathing under control. Concentrate on exhaling slowly until you recover and can continue your ride at a lower heart rate.
Remember to take in your surroundings and notice the hawk soaring overhead, the beautiful flowers by the side of the road or the spectacular views around you. It’s one of the few sports that allows you to stop and smell the roses.
Find a rhythm that’s comfortable to you. Stay positive when you aren’t feeling well and slow down if you need to.
Every day is different. Just because you rode at 18 mph yesterday doesn’t mean you need to average that speed today. Heart rate monitors and odometers are fine to monitor workouts, but listening to your body is just as important.
In the beginning of the mountain bike ricing, don’t worry about which crank arm is forward and which is back. Just do whatever comes naturally. Then, after you get comfortable with the basic lifting, make sure to practice with either crank arm forward, and learn to direct the handlebar twisting motion so it turns the front wheel slightly left or right. Once you get that move down, expand the length of your standstill until you are no longer using the momentum of your traverse to hop. Then try hopping the bike up-slope. If you ever feel yourself falling, try to fall uphill. With luck, you’ve picked a spot clear of obstacles, maybe even one with grass on either side of the trail for a soft landing. Large fields or lawns are great places to practice bunny hopping.
Above all, keep it fun and you’ll look forward to tomorrow’s ride!
