Freeride mountain biking is any form of mountain biking that emphasizes skill riding over endurance riding. Usually gravity fed, freeriding incorporates different aspects of biking such as downhill, dirt jumping and technical trail features (TTF’s) to create fun, challenging trails and terrain that help rider’s progress and improve there riding abilities.

Biking is skiing in summer. It’s time to start seeing mountain biking as no different then skiing.

Just like skiing, riders seek more and more challenging and diverse terrain as their skills and equipment improve. Just like skiing, some riders prefer long smooth groomed trails and some prefer rough untamed technical trails. Just as in skiing, some only want to play in a terrain park on jumps and TTF’s that push their ability and encourage learning tricks. Just like with skiing, there are cross-country, beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert trails and beginner, intermediate and advanced lines in terrain parks and bike skills parks. Just like skis, bikes are specific to there purpose. There are road bikes, cruisers, cross country bikes, down hill bikes, freeride bikes, dirt jumpers, trail bikes and BMX bikes. Today’s bike enthusiast may have a quiver of bikes just like today’s skier has a quiver of skis for different terrain and conditions.
