You Know You’re a Mountain Biker When…

There is a special bond mountain bikers share with each other—and there are even some habits, characteristics and quirks that only other mountain bikers can appreciate. So, for all you mountain bikers out there, perhaps you can identify with these descriptions:

You know you’re a mountain biker when…
  • You go riding in the woods on a powder day…on your bike.
  • You have a semi-permanent chainring “tattoo” on your right calf.
  • Taking off your socks reveals a distinct dirt line.
  • You count trail building as community service.
