INTERMEDIATE / ACTIVE

MY FITNESS LEVEL…
I ride my bike on a regular basis either for fitness, to commute to work, or just for fun. I enjoy an active lifestyle with an occasional physical challenge.

I ENJOY…
Rolling terrain with some bigger hills that are challenging. I feel great after reaching the top.

MY AVERAGE DAY ON THE BIKE…
Around 2-3 hours of riding each day. I can ride about 30 miles, and up to 50 miles on a long day at an average speed of 15-18 MPH.

I’M COMFORTABLE CLIMBING…
Steep rollers and short mountains, but with a few breaks in between. About 2,000 feet of climbing.

FOR MOUNTAIN BIKE TRIPS…
My fitness level: I am comfortable on 2 hour rides at a moderate pace, of 8-14 miles in length with a few short anaerobic climbs throughout. I get out for exercise about 3 days a week.

My skill level: I have some experience riding trails or off road terrain and have been mountain biking for at least one year. I can control my bike speed and direction on smooth trails and moderately uneven terrain, but often walk my bike when things get rocky or rooty.
