Making Mountain Biking Senior-Friendly 

While mountain biking is generally viewed as a sport for the younger generation, with the many risks and high speed, there are ways to adapt trail riding to make it into a senior-friendly hobby. By providing a detailed guide on elderly trail riding, Bike Astra wants to encourage more seniors to explore nature by bike.

Gear and Bike Options You Should Consider in Your 60s

As Bike Astra points out, many seniors shy away from mountain biking due to experiencing a lack of strength and stamina as they age. A relatively new product that solves this issue is electric mountain bikes. With an E-MTB, you can keep up with younger riders, prolong the rides, and go on more trails that are too challenging without the extra help. 

The guide also explains the importance of choosing the right gear for safety and comfort. The list of basic gear includes

  • a helmet made for trail riding
  • gloves for grip and to protect the hands from vibrations
  • eye protection
  • padded shorts
  • a backpack with a water bladder
