Mountain Biking Vacation in St George Utah

Mountain biking is a dynamic sport is more ways than one. Aside from riding trails, climbing hills, and negotiating tricky downhills. the actual riding conditions are as consistent as Mother Natures mood. A smooth, single-track ride one weekend can, after a downpour, turn into a wheel-jamming mudfest that can wreak havoc on equipment, and piss off your laundry man. We spent some time while on a vacation in St George Utah doing some mountain biking.

Advancements in design, components and equipment also mean that riders can now ride faster, farther, and with more comfort and confidence than before, albeit at the expense of your bank accounts. But the real focus of the sport is not who’s got the latest fork, most expensive set of wheels, or flashiest jersey. All these accouterments don’t mean anything if you yourself are not ready and knowledgeable. Here are tips for you to keep your trail-riding trouble-free and worthwhile.

Techniques

Learn to absorb any shock. No matter how expensive your hydraulics are, your most reliable shock absorbers will still be your arms and legs. Always keep a loose grip especially on rough terrains to absorb the shock. It will also help if you distribute your weight evenly between your hands and feet.

Prepare for climbs. On steep climbs, the front wheel must always be grounded and the rear traction must not be lost. Your torso must be positioned over the handlebar but your hips low and back in order that the rear wheel will maintain its grip. For extremely steep hills, sit on the front-most part of your saddle for maximum power in pedaling  Also don’t forget to wear a strong pair of bike shorts.

Familiarize yourself with shifting. Especially when going uphill, know the level of gear that you must maintain so that you can ascend with ease.

Always look ahead. Always have an overview of what’s ahead of you – about 20 feet ahead. There may be times where you want to observe your surroundings but always keep one eye on the trail ahead. Try to visualize a straight line on your path.

Transfer your weight. There is a chance that you may suffer injuries and falls if you do not know how to quickly transfer your weight during your ride. If there is a different path, lean back and pull up the handlebar slightly to lift the bike’s front wheel then transfer your weight to the front immediately by pushing down lightly on the handlebar and lift the rear wheel with your legs.

Be careful in your descends. Don’t be too stiff and too firm when biking. You should be relaxed and loose. Keep your elbows and knees bent to absorb shocks from bumps. On extreme slopes, keep your arms straight and move at the behind of your seat to transfer the weight to the back from the front.

Equipment

While generally, mountain biking is more affordable that road biking, it can still be an expensive outdoor activity with all the accessories that you may want to add. But not all accessories and upgrades are essential. For some people. a bike and a helmet is all they need. Here are some tips in purchasing the right bike:

Know the kind of bike for you. Mountain bikes have many different varieties and most of them are appropriate for beginners. But be careful as there are other varieties that may be difficult for starters such as downhill bikes. They usually have full suspension on them but is quite heavy compared to most bikes making it difficult for you to navigate.

Get a light frame. A good bike starts from the frame which is the metal polygon in your bike. For beginners, it is advisable to get a lightweight one which is usually made of aluminum. You can do away with your stock components. Just get an expensive one when your old ones get broken or lost.

Ask for assistance. As much as possible avoid buying your first bike alone. Look for professionals who can assist you in finding your bike. If you cannot find a professional then maybe a friend of yours who is curious and particular to details can help you.

Okay, so you’ve decided you want to become healthy and also to put some extra muscles on those gorgeous legs of yours. That is what we did recently on a trip to St George where we were able to take advantage of a Tuacahn hotel package. What’s your solution? Mountain Biking. Here are some useful tips for those of you who may want to take up this sport:

1. Own your bike.

Yes, we did not mean “buy your bike.” We said, “own your bike”. This means that after buying your bike, whether it’s expensive or not, you need to be familiar with all the aspects of your bike. Literally, your life is on the line when you ride your bike so choose wisely. It’s best to know all the quirks of your bike as well. Practice braking on both tires. What gear best works for this type of road? What seat position do I feel most comfortable in? Own your bike and own your life.

2. After getting a bike, get a helmet.

Needless to say, a helmet has saved a lot of lives. Or at least, lessened the pain of crashing. Pick those that feels comfortable on your head. Especially if you plan to go on long rides, buy a full-faced helmet if you plan to do downhill biking. Other safety gears like gloves for you to cushion a fall also aside from it giving you comfort, and sunglasses, and knee pads and elbow pads are also advisable. Bring an extra interior and pump as well.

3. Get used to your pedals.

Plant your feet on the pedals and try pedaling inside your garage first to familiarize the feel of the pedal on your feet. Remember that your feet and the pedals will be your constant companions.

4. Find a comfortable position.

Sit on your bike and pedal around. Your arms should remain slightly bent. Your seat height should be adjusted so your leg is about 70 to 90 percent extended at the bottom of every pedal stroke. Keep your body loose and relaxed. There should never be a situation when you should have your knees or elbows locked.xXx: Return of Xander Cage 2017 film download

5. Proper shifting of gears.

In riding your bike, make sure that you are in the proper gear. Higher gears are harder to pedal and will go faster while lower gears are easier to pedal and help you get up hills. Next, try to get used to what gears you need to be in to comfortably go up different pitched hills. As the hills get steeper, it is best to shift before you get to the hill rather than while you are on the hill. For us, this is key to biking.

6. Learn to pedal while standing

This may be useful when you encounter difficult roads. It is recommended to try this on higher gears when on flat surfaces and in lower gears when uphill. If you encounter a long climb alternate between riding in and out of the saddle for about thirty seconds at a time this will help you climb faster and more efficiently.

7. Where to look?

Always be aware of your surroundings. Look not at the bike in front of you but a couple of meters in front of you.

8. Join a local cycling group.

As much as possible, try not to bike alone. Try joining a local cycling group. Aside from acquiring new friends, other riders, especially those who have been biking for a longer time than you, can give you more tips about biking.Raw 2017 live streaming film online

9. Bring lots of water.

Hydration is also one of the most important things to remember when biking. Aside from providing you with extra strength and resistance, water can compensate for the liquid that your body is spewing out when biking.

10. Safety first.

Lower the volume of that MP3 player. It’s okay to listen to music but it’s also wise to be more aware of your surroundings. You may be the safest driver in the world but you can’t control the other drivers.

How to Protect Your Bike When You Forget Your Lock

Suppose you forget your bike lock and you need to go to the convenience store for a minute to buy a pack of gum or soft drinks? How will you keep your bike safe from thieves?

While these tips are based on the instincts and habits of thieves, I cannot guarantee that these are foolproof. Of course it is still better to bring your lock. But for that unfortunate event that you fail to bring your lock here are some of the things that you can do:

1. Turn your bike upside down. If you will enter a store for only a short period and you forgot your lock or if finding a post where you can attach your bike will be a hassle, you can just turn your bike upside down. In this way, your bike may appear to be at such position because it is being repaired or that the owner of the bike is only within the vicinity. Also, it will take a lot of time and effort for the thief to lift the bike up and turn it into its proper position. That will give you ample time to discover such an act.

However, let us say that he knows your method and has managed to turn the bike on its wheels and take it without you noticing. What then will you do? Well, in addition to the first tip, you can:

2. Take the chains off or switch the gears in a wrong way. As an additional precaution, you can take the chain off of the chain rings. Now, the thief will not be able to pedal and will only be in a ridiculous situation if he attempts to pedal his way out. Another thing that you can do is change the gears of your bike without actually moving the chain. In this way, if the thief tried to pedal, the chain will jump five sprockets and the two chain rings will make a clinking noise. He may either lose his balance or better yet, the chain will lock immobilizing him.

3. Put a small lock on the brake disk. If your bike is equipped with a brake disk, then what you can do is put an additional small lock at an opening where you can put the lock. In this manner, the wheel cannot rotate immobilizing your thief once again.

Again, use these methods only if you forget to bring a lock. A bike lock is still the best prevention for a bike loss.
