Chris’s Guide to Mountain Biking


Mountain biking has long been my favorite sport. I’ve been riding trails on my bike since I was a little kid. I’ve put together this guide with all the years of experience I have to share. If you’re ready to up your bike game, this guide is for you.

I’ve seen too many people out on new mountain bikes who don’t have the skills or fitness to fully enjoy the trails they’re on, and I want to change that. 

This guide will help you be more prepared for your next mountain biking. It will give you all the skills, knowledge, techniques, exercises and motivation you need to get you off the couch and on your bike.

The guide is under development, so check back often as we add additional content.

Trailforks is owned by Pinkbike. It offers an incredible resource for finding trails near you wherever you are in the world. It’s a freemium model that only allows you to view a small area in the mobile app, but so far, the website will let you plan out all your rides.
