Many people enjoy the exhilaration of mountain biking. Others enjoy the level of fitness they achieve from training and racing. A growing number of mountain biking clubs are drawing in new participants who are finding the camaraderie and experience with the outdoors hard to resist.
For those with injuries suffered from running and contact sports, mountain biking gives you a second chance at heavy physical exercise while minimizing the pounding on the ankles, knees and hips that competitive sports can unfortunately cause.
Because of the jolting action of mountain biking, the pedometer readings may not be entirely accurate. Still, many mountain bikers do want to know how far they’ve gone and a few would like to track their heart rates as they bike through a course. Try Bodytronic’s PedoBelt pedometer belt and the POBIKE – the Bike Mounted Polar heart rate monitor.
