If you are into mountain biking at all, you will have to get yourself a mountain bike light. Even if you only bike in the day, you should always be prepared by having an emergency kit, and a bike light. The chances of getting stuck in the woods or the mountains overnight may be slim, especially if you are an experienced biker, but having a light can make it easier for you to find your way out of trails or if an emergency occurs past dusk.

Do you stay properly hydrated while riding? Do you even have somewhere convenient to put your water bottle?

Biking is an exciting sport and leisure activity, but can also be a dangerous one. Although watching it from the comfort of your home with your best friends or pet feels safe, it’s not the same out there.

Mountain biking can be an expensive hobby. Any rider, whether novice or experienced, knows very well that your equipment heavily influences your performance. But as your skill level improves and you start to take on new challenges, you’ll quickly find yourself limited by your equipment.
Ripping down the trails on your mountain bike is one of the most exhilarating outdoor activities you can participate in. But it doesn’t matter whether you’re riding in a city park, hitting black diamond trails, or exploring the backcountry. Both amateurs and experts alike all run the risk of getting a flat tire, and there is nothing else that can bring such an abrupt end to your summer fun.
By keeping your tires at the right pressure, you’ll be able to drastically reduce your chance of a flat. One of the biggest mistakes that novice riders make is riding on tires that are a little low. With this in mind, a good bicycle pump can spell the difference between completing your run and heading down to the shop to replace a worn out tire.
