"The commercials have made it so that we forget that a lot of mountain biking is grunting up climbs, and being rewarded with that maybe 10% of the time when you're breezing down the other side." - Jacquie Phelan
Big Mountain Riding is a state of mind. It is more about how you ride your mountain bike than it is about what you ride or where you ride. Big Mountain Riding features epic challenges of distance and of technical trails. Big mountain riders pedal their bikes up the mountain to ride down. They get where they want to go under their own power. Those who try to ride it all on their trail bikes, 29ers, singlespeeds, all mountain rigs and freeride machines are welcome to learn more about our passion. The site features reviews of big mountain riding bikes, gear and trails. You’ll find tips and tricks to improve your own all mountain riding skills. We also post event coverage of some big mountain riding epics in Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina.
