minor repairs, if necessary, plus spare tires, a cell phone, ID and
some cash. Don't forget plenty of water for hydration, and
some energy bars for nourishment. Trail maps are available at
the resort rental shop. It is also recommended - especially for
one's first visit to a mountain resort - to go out with a guide
who knows the trails and can assist with techniques.
Lifts are modified for transporting both the biker and the
bikes to the higher levels. Some of the downhill trails follow
dirt paths, while in other sections of a trail, there might be
some very rocky terrain to traverse. Other areas might be relatively flat. Part of the fun is the variety of the terrain!
Many experienced mountain bikers might prefer to travel
solo, but most mountain bikers like sharing the experience with
others of a similar experience level. Members of the group learn
from each other, and provide motivational assistance, as well
as, support if there are equipment problems or in case of an
accident to a rider. Once again, the rental shop may be able to
match individuals together; or bring your own group from your
ski, hike, bike or social club.
Another option that many prefer is cross country biking
along paved country roads, paths following flowing rivers or
streams, or the service roads connected to the resort. Thus . . .
Step 1: Get fitted for your mountain bike.
Step 2: Load your bike, as well as, yourself on to the lift.
Step 3: Put on your helmut and head for the trailhead.
Step 4: Ride the trail and do it again. Sound familiar???

mountain biking. Some are steep, while others are much flatter. Grand Targhee Bike Park / Cort Muller, photographer

and maintain lift-accessed biking trails within their boundaries. In many respects, these bike trails are similar to ski trails
and descending them provides the same wonderful feeling of
a sunny day on the snow-covered slopes. Cool breezes still caress your face, but instead of snow ladened pines, the leaves
of deciduous trees are gently swaying. The meadows are filled
with wild flowers in full bloom. And, beautiful mountain
views and fresh air surround you. Sounds like paradise!
Developers of bike trails design them for a variety of experience levels similar to those created for skiers and boarders
for winter fun. Beginning trails are available for those just
starting to enjoy the sport or for those who want a more mellow participation level. Numerous trails are available for those
who want a little more of a challenge. And, there are trails for
highly skilled downhill mountain bikers and serious racers.
As with any sport, there is a learning curve. For neverevers or beginners it is recommended to take lessons to gain
knowledge. Lessons can be arranged through bike rental shops
either at the resort or within the adjacent towns. Some considerations include which bike is best for each participant
based on one's physique, skill level, and, of course, one's pocketbook. Techniques are also taught for handling various terrain
elements. In these lessons, one can also learn what should be
taken on the trail and how to perform minor bike repairs. In
addition to wearing appropriate clothing, it is also important
to obtain a well fitting helmet, tools to fix a blown tire or other
