  Mountain biking

 

  

    Cycling is one of the sports and recreational branches that positively affect human health and body development. By riding a bike, we activate the cardio-vascular system, as well as a large group of muscles, which contributes to our health and psycho-physical development. Whether you do cycling as an amateur or as a professional, you will have multiple benefits for your health through these activities. There are several types of cycling, but we will primarily focus on mountain biking (MTB). The most important thing is that the safety of cycling through mountain trails is probably higher than on the road, where the chance of a crash of unscrupulous riders is very high. Certainly, wearing a helmet is mandatory.

    Mountain biking allows us to experience an unforgettable adventure with beautiful natural surroundings. The combination of cycling and hiking, as well as staying in pure nature, is a specific experience which provides a special thrill and a hard ride through mountain trails, but also the excellent views from mountain peaks and a ride through floral meadows and goat trails. Various obstacles, such as rocks of timber only reinforce the positive effect. Adrenalin addicts will find so much there for themselves...

     It is practically almost impossible to prepare for a new ski season without taking an occasional bike ride through a forest environment. Mountain biking has been going through a huge expansion for years and it is becoming indispensable for everyone who enjoys the outdoors. To begin with, we recommend a ride through some specially designed trails or a smaller climb up a nearby hill. The benefits of such a preparation for a ski season are vast, from cardio-vascular activities to strengthening leg muscles and doses of adrenalin that will grow over time. It is also worth mentioning the important fact that mountain biking does not pollute the environment.
