There is not a muscle in the body that can go on vacation while you are mountain biking. Your legs push and pull the pedals but your arms also have to hold their own while you are balancing and pushing through tough terrain like soft sand and uneven rolling hills. Going uphill gives your heart a tough workout so it is a great way to build cardiovascular fitness.
- Mountain bikes have larger, stronger frames and wider tires in order to handle a variety of rough terrain. It requires endurance, bike handling skills, and guts to get up, and down, some tough hills.
