When it’s cold, mountain biking can be a struggle. So, here are five ways to get into mountain biking this winter and how to really enjoy MTB-ing whatever the weather!

1. Try flat pedals on your mountain bike
Flat pedals can teach you some great mtb skills habits and help you to get loose on the bike!
2. Try riding a hardtail
Riding a hardtail mountain bike is a great way to build your core skills, they’re super simple bikes, and, when you get back on your full suspension mountain bike in summer, previously difficult skills will appear easy.
3. Try something different
Cyclocross, trials, BMX, road. They’re all different and they’re all going to help you become a better mountain biker. That’s right, even road…
4. Help out a bit
Volunteer to dig some new trails. It’s a bit of a gym workout and at GMBN we all believe that we should give something back and help to make the world, and the world’s trails, better for all mountain bikers.
5. Get some good kit
You’ve heard “all the gear, no idea”, but, when it comes to riding in winter conditions, the right gear means that you’re going to get so much more from your riding. A good jacket and gloves is a start, but why not check out the GMBN shop for a bit more swag?!
Of course, we’d love to hear from you on this so do let us know what you think down in the comments and don’t forget to SHARE and LIKE this video!
