Recreational


Fitness
I ride my bike regularly for fun, commuting or fitness. I am relatively fit as I enjoy sports and an active lifestyle. I prefer rides with slight inclines, mostly flat, rolling terrain with short climbs. I prefer low to moderate pace with breaks on the way. I can ride 30 – 50 Km on mixed terrain, up to 600 meters of climbing.

Skills
I have some basic experience riding off road, I am mountain biking a few times per year. I can roll and balance the bike on smooth dirt roads and I can maintain control of speed and direction. When things get rough, rocky or loose I’d rather walk the section.

Active


Fitness
I regularly ride my bike on a weekly basis, for fitness or sport. Active lifestyle is in my priorities, I enjoy all terrain and I feel comfortable challenging hills, mountain passages and long persistent climbs,.
I can ride at a moderate pace 4-6 hour rides , 40 – 60 km off road, up to 1000 height meters (elevation).

Skills
I have been mountain biking for more than a year. I have good control of my bike on moderately steep, rocky and loose terrain on climbs and descents. Fast descents bring a smile on my face and I really enjoy technical sections and single tracks.

Avid Rider

Avid


Fitness
I am a strong, experienced mountain biker, cycling on average 100+ km weekly. I have excellent physical condition, I enjoy all terrain including long, steep, challenging, technical climbs and descents.
I can ride for 4+ hours at a fast pace, on 50 plus km long routes and I stay sharp after 1500 m of climbing.

Skills
I have been mountain biking for at least two years on a consistent basis. I have total control of my bike on fairly steep slopes, rocky, loose and tricky terrain. Fast descents are pure fun, rewarding me after a challenging climb.
