What is known as “cross-country cycling” is a type of mountain bike riding, which includes riding a number of trails over easy to difficult terrain. The rider should be fit and in good physical shape in order to take on any cross-country cycling, as it is not for the weak at heart, because a ride can be from one hour to all day or perhaps even longer.
Cross-country racing combines cross-country cycling with the aspect of competition, and different kinds of races to test the skills of the riders, their fitness, and their determination. The type of bicycle a cross-country rider uses is specifically designed to take on a variety of terrains whilst still keeping an aggressive riding position and with light weight. Due to the cyclist doing some climbing while cross-country cycling, the utilisation of a light bike is vital so that the rider does not have too much extra weight to haul uphill, and regarding cycling clothing, is why a lightweight and great looking mens cycling jersey is the ideal gift.
Bicycling More Popular Than Ever Over the Past Couple of Decades
Actually, over the past couple of decades, the trend towards getting back to two wheeled engineless vehicles has become increasingly popular and especially on the continent of Europe and in the UK and Ireland. In some nations such as Holland, they have had cycling friendly roads for near on 50 odd years, as anybody who has been there can tell you. And cycle holidays have these days become extremely popular as more people than ever want to have a holiday away from where all the tourists go and really see the parts unseen by bus loads of sightseers.
Cycling is a really great way to escape from our over scheduled lives and any getting away from TV, phone and computer screens is a wonderful way to get back to how things were in former days. Yes, you can even leave that mobile phone behind also, to get that really authentic vintage feeling of how people lived not that long ago – and they did so very happily too, by the way!
Commuting – Biking it
Increasing evidence has been shown for quite some time that shows that sitting around in vehicles in the traffic has a negative effect on our overall well-being, and those people who can bike it, should do so. Yes, that will not be plausible for everybody as not everyone lives within cycling range of where they are employed and some good people have children to drop off at school and pick them up, but there’s still quite a few people who have this great easy option and they should at least give it a go. If you do, you may be quite amazed at how efficient it is!
Can you remember the first bicycle you had as a child? You will get the same feeling back again!
