Tip 1: To help stay on top of your nutrition during rides and races, set a timer for 20–25 minutes on your ride computer or watch so you don’t forget to eat/drink! It helps a bunch to be reminded, then it just becomes habit.
Tip 2: Keep quick links for your chain and tire plugs taped to your handlebars or stem on all your bikes so you can easily get to them when the time comes!
THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS TO GET MOUNTAIN BIKE ACTION
Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
