MOUNTAIN BIKER WITHOUT BIKEPARK EXPERIENCE
You ride a mountain-bike but have never been to a bike park? Gravity Mountain biking differs in various aspects from classic cross-country or uphill mountain biking. Take your time to get used to the new full suspension bike, before venturing on to the first tracks. The training area at the bottom station is the ideal spot for this.
Not all trails in the bike park are suitable for first riding attempts. We recommend that Novice Riders use the following blue trails for their first rides:
- Milky Way: A good trail to get comfortable with the bike and surroundings
- Vuelta & Morning Glory: After doing some rounds on the Milky Way these two trails offer a bit more of a challenge to improve your skills on the bike
Airtime is the most fun when it comes to Gravity mountain biking! If you have little or no experience with jumps and obstacles, take it one step at a time. That’s exactly why we offer trails within the Bikepark of varying difficulty levels. Trails marked blue incorporate small obstacles and wooden ramps for your first jump attempts.
Protective clothing and the right bike
You should ride on a suitable bike and wear the appropriate protective gear in order to really enjoy the Bikepark and reduce the possibility of injury. Please don't ride your own cross-country or All-mountain bike on the trails and make sure to wear the necessary protective clothing. Large disk breaks and a full suspension are absolutely necessary in order to have fun on the bike park trails. All the important protectors as well as perfectly maintained bikes are available for rent in the Bikeshop. Our Bikeshop staff is happy to answer any questions you might have.
Our trained bike guides can help you reach your full potential in your first Bikepark experiences. Even if you already have some experience in mountain biking we recommend a couple of hours with a guide to learn the basics of riding in the Bikepark. You can book group or individual lessons to perfect your skills here.
