FIRST PARK VISIT

No need to be timid, everyone was a beginner at some stage. Therefore we happily guide and assist you on your way to collect collect your first experiences in Gravity mountain biking. We warmly recommend that First timers and Bikepark novices take following tips to heart:


Gear

To be able to have fun on the Bikepark trails, an adequate freeride or downhill bike is a prerequisite. You can find perfectly maintained rental bikes in our Bikeshop at the bottom station Waldbahn.

Safety first: The right bike also needs the right protective gear, which you can also obtain from our Bikeshop.


Trails

Riding downhill is more tiring than one might think. Therefore don't take on too much. To get you started we recommend a few training laps in the training area. Here you can find easy berms, small bumps and some small wooden ramps, which can be conquered without any troubles. Take a few turns and get to know your bike and the new riding experience. Once you feel secure enough you can take it to the next level on the trails Morning Glory and Vuelta, both marked blue. 

Be sure to take frequent breaks and listen to your body. When your underarms start to hurt - this is the so called arm pump - and the knees start to get wobbly, then it's time to take a break!
