Is as the name suggests, riding on a trail. It's very easy to get started as there are hundreds of official trails you can utilise. Many of these were walking trails, although some may be dedicated MTB trails. Not typically a competitive event, it's more of a fun activity. It's great for people new to the sport and those looking to take their bikes off road but not after the huge thrills and spills of more radical routes. Most MTB's can handle the conditions and little specialist experience or equipment is needed..
