Mountain Biking Experiences
Mountain biking is a healthy, rewarding hobby that’ll take you on the most serenely beautiful adventures across the UK. It’s the perfect way to blend a love for the great outdoors with a thrilling shot of adrenaline-pumping action across purpose-built forest trails.
There’s much debate about where mountain biking first originated. The band of 20 Parisians that modified their 650-B bikes in 1951 with extraordinary sophistication. Perhaps John Finley Scott deserves the honours with his ‘Woodsie Bike’, in 1953. But regardless where you look, all stories include Marin County in California. A downhill race called the ‘Repack’, shaped a casual activity organised by enthusiasts into something much, much more than goofing around with old clunkers.
Follow in the trail of these forefathers with your very own mountain biking experience from our hand-picked collection of heart-pumping gift ideas. Discover the hype that stemmed a movement, now recognised as an Olympic sport. A bad day on the bike always beats a good day in the office anyway.
