Mountain Biking for Road Cyclists

Mountain Bike RadioOver the years, we’ve been asked several times to do a show on mountain biking and our answer has always been the same.  “We’re a road cycling podcast.”

But the time has come and this show is dedicated to helping road cyclists determine if mountain biking is something they should try out…..and if so, how to get started.

We bring in mountain bike expert and host of Mountain Bike Radio, Ben Welnek to help us out.

In this episode:

  • Why to try mountain biking

    • Weather or seasonal restrictions
    • Cross training benefits
    • The benefits of mountain biking
  • Getting started in mountain biking

    • Basic gear
    • Finding places to ride and people to ride with
    • Gauging your level
  • How to balance road cycling with mountain biking

  • The most common mountain biking mistakes made by road cyclists
