It’s not all about the riding – take time to relax and enjoy the experience too! Chances are you’re riding somewhere with spectacular views or beautiful scenery, because lots of trails are located in woodland, national parks and other similarly beautiful places, with mountains. The mountains are important (the clue’s in the name).
Stopping to enjoy the view is also a convenient excuse to stop and get your breath back if you’ve just busted a lung on a climb. For extra credibility, take some photos.
