Mountain Biking - Emerging sport in India
Updated: Dec 1, 2020
Everyone’s first memory of cycling is of their parent running behind them holding the bicycle as they are trying to balance and them shouting, ‘Don’t let go, don’t let go’. The scene after they have learned to balance is the opposite- shouting with joy as they go pedalling with the feeling that they have wings.
Cycles are our first vehicles and as we graduate to other forms of transport, we forget the joy of cycling. The way we push ourselves to pedal uphill, the thrill of going downhill at full speed and the various stunts we have tried with our cycles.
Mountain biking brings back the fun of cycling fused with bounteous adventure. Pick up a cycle, choose your trail and experience your adventure. Mountain biking blends exercise, fun, nature, exploration, challenge, and adrenaline-rush. Along with being a major part of adventure races, it is a sport by itself with many international championships. Mountain biking has something for everyone with its various styles-Trial, cross-country, All mountain/Enduro, Downhill/Park, and Fatbiking. Each style has its set of challenges, requires different skills and different kinds of bikes.
In India, Mountain Biking like other adventure sports is gaining popularity. The diverse mountain ranges of India offer great Mountain Biking destinations. A biker is spoilt for choice between the striking snow-clad, majestic Himalayas and the lush green, stunning mountains of the Western Ghats.
