Mountain biking has different styles of bikes to match your riding style. As well as different apparel to match. For marathon and XC riders, aero is everything! So tight lycra is worn and aero helmets and carbon shoes make every second count. But there is a world out there that South Africans are only just starting to discover - All Mountain, or trail riding!
Read my latest article in Into Cycling about what 'all mountain riders' like me wear when we hit the trail and why! #Bigbikes&baggies

Finally I get to ride with my friend Des often! She used to not even want to ride with riders who were fitter than her. Which made me sad cause she is a complete natural on the bike. Now she can handle the climbs on her new Specialized Levo and I get a real work out trying to keep up! And it's great that she gets to show off her natural descending ability...and she will soon be fitter than me! # levo #specialized #fearoutfunin #aerospherevision
Seriously amazing trails in Piketberg! Awesome community vibe too.

" I thought that my middle name might just as well have been "crash" until I met Jo! She helped me gain so much confidence on my mountain bike that carried over to my road cycling. I can now stay on my bike (well for most of the time...) and descend without slamming my breaks on... What I really love about Jo is the journey she takes on with you, the continued encouragement. It is not just a skills session, and that is it - it is so much more! Even though my focus is more on the road - the skills sessions still helps me so much with my bike handling - a very important factor in bunch riding... Literally anyone who attends her skills sessions/clinics will benefit from it - whether you are old, young, fit, unfit,pro, amateur, any body type, any disciple. Her fire and passion for life and cycling will ignite something special in you. This is definitely, for me, one of the best investments I've made - and I know for so many other people too."
