With increasing emphasis on reduction in carbon emissions across the globe, a red alert has been sounded. The world is looking out for effective solutions to tackle the hazards posed to avert an impending disaster in the near future. The leaders at the Copenhagen Summit set an example by organizing a bicycle rally to elucidate the effect of such a simple yet appealing solution.
Of course, bicycles have always been ridden off road but the actual mountain biking sport began in the 1970s. Riders from Colorado and a couple of places in California claim to be the ones to give birth to the sport. While each group may have some validity to the claim, the bottom line is that many have contributed in the growth and development of the sport. Many people have designed bikes, built bikes and created equipment that has catapulted the sport to the popularity that it enjoys today.
Bike tools should be taken along on the trail as well, since the heavy strain of off road and off path riding leads to more mechanical and equipment breakdowns. Essential tools to have with you include a tire pump, extra tire tubes or chains and a basic toolkit to allow you to repair your bike if needed.
