If mountain biking is part of your to do list for 2020, welcome! You’re about to embark on a journey of a lifetime, with a sport that not only has a multitude of physical benefits, but also allows you to better take care of your mental health in the process as well. Sometimes a challenge is all we need to get out of our comfort zones, and starting a new sport can be daunting. Knowing where to go to find the best quality mountain bikes in the country can help make the process a lot easier. Speaking to an expert who can help you to gradually enter into the world of cycling can make you feel more at ease right from the beginning, as you prepare to hit the ground running (literally) very soon. 

The Origins of Mountain Biking

Mountain biking originated in California on Marin County’s Mount Tamalpais. It would take a while for it to be adopted fully and it would only be at the end of the 1970’s that traditional bicycle companies started to put more emphasis on manufacturing mountain bikes using high-tech, lighter materials. Since then, the industry has boomed since, expected to reach a global market value of $3.5 billion (over R50 billion) by 2026. It’s safe to say you’re not alone on this adventure, and there is a lot of support around you regardless of where you’re planning on doing most of your mountain biking.
