Mountain Biking Tips and Advice from RushAdventures Bike Holidays

What to wear:

Helmet – A helmet is recommended for all riders in the bike park. We strongly recommend a full-face helmet to provide the greatest range of protection.
Goggles – Wrap-around goggles are the best choice for eye protection against dirt, branches, and other obstacles you’ll encounter on the trails or in a crash.
Elbow and Knee Pads – Provide protection from cuts, scrapes and any impact to these parts of your body that are most common to be injured in a crash.
Shoes – Shoes with a durable toe box and high ankle support are important to manage the rough terrain and impact.
Long Sleeved Shirt and Shorts – Cover up with the proper clothing to limit the amount of bare skin showing.
Full Finger Gloves – Use these to keep your hands on your bars with secure grip on your brakes. Your hands are typically the first to support you in a crash, so you want them covered up.
Body Armour – Optional for anyone who wants extra protection for your back and chest.
Neck Brace – Optional for anyone who wants extra neck support which typically is needed when hitting large jumps and drops.
