Are you tired of being let down by a flat battery on your mobile phone? Well this could be your answer.
Visit any sports or nutrition store and you’ll find rows and rows of products boasting a variety of benefits and advantages to both your training and actual performance in any given sport. So which products are beneficial for mountain bikers, and most importantly, which ones actually work or have proven benefits?
When someone mentions sand, most people would think of picturesque beaches or mysterious deserts with hypnotic, ever-changing dunes. For most mountain bikers, however, sand is a challenge to be avoided if they could help it. Only providing little traction, sandy areas, patches, or sections had been crash sites for many of us.

We all know that there is no shortage of diets or eating plans in the world today – there is even a Cookie Diet! The options are especially plentiful when it comes to fitness and active lifestyles. Virtually every diet and nutrition regimen boasts a variety of benefits for athletes and active individuals. Increased energy, improved focus, toning, shaping, sculpting, muscle mass – many diets claim to do it all. There are even diets tailored to specific sports and activities.
But what eating plan is best for mountain biking? What diet should avid riders follow to meet mountain biking’s unique challenges and energy requirements and ensure they’re providing their active bodies with sustained energy throughout the ride? No, it’s not the Cookie Diet. It’s the paleo diet.
Sometimes getting your bike to the trail can be the most challenging part of a mountain bike ride. Mountain bikes are often large and unwieldy, and for some, the act of transporting a mountain bike from home to trail is difficult and discouraging. But it doesn’t have to be.
Here we’ll explore some options for transporting your mountain bike to help eliminate any excuses or barriers between you and your next ride.
