The MTB route Sellingen shows you how varied the landscape in Groningen can be. In addition to the usual views over the fields, you also ride through the forest, heathland and various villages. The trails also have enough variety to retain your attention without being too difficult.
Mountain biking in the open plains of Groningen? The MTB route Hoogezand gives you that possibility. However, this is not what you call a typical MTB route. The simplicity of the trails and roads provide a very accessible route for any starting (mountain) biker. Don’t set your expectations too high regarding the trails.
This flat 15km novice route lets you ride over the many single trails that the MTB route Austerlitz has to offer. Despite the fact that the route runs over the Utrecht Hill Ridge, there are only 87 altitude meters to be collected due to riding over many large bumps. The partly overlapping MTB route Zeist can also be ridden to increase your cycling fun.
Endura MT500 Helmet Long Term Review: Koroyd, Improving Beyond The Safety Standards? July 29th, 2018 | Written by Jeffrey | MTB.guide
Endura’s MT500 helmet is their flagship offering and part of their MT500 trail performance lineup, where a no-compromise on features, comfort and safety is sought after for this helmet. Endura chose to divert from the path of MIPS and chose to incorporate the relatively new Koroyd technology to improve the safety of the MT500 helmet to a more ambitious level.
Bryton Rider 330 Long Term Review: Navigation With ANT+ On A Budget July 29th, 2018 | Written by Jeffrey | MTB.guide
As budget GPS units have to compete with smartphones, they need some features to add value. The Bryton Rider 330 has a battery life of 36 hours, can follow GPS routes and supports ANT+ to do so. It’s small and with 54grams not that heavy to carry around. The Bryton Rider 330 has been on my bike for the past year for most of my rides and accumulated 4452km of on- and off-road riding. It’s still going still going strong, but there are a few caveats you should know of.
Riding over 18km of narrow off-road trails with many ups and downs close to the trees, that is the MTB route Leersum. With slight elevation gain (310m) and only few moments of rest, this is a challenging route that runs through the natural area of the Utrecht Hill Ridge.
Want to know in a 5km a crash course what mountain biking in the Netherlands has to offer? The MTB route Sint Pietersberg is a complete route with climbs, descents, technical trails, beautiful sceneries and runs completely off-road.
The MTB route Riemst gives you within 12km and 192m of elevation gain a simple taste of what this border region with the Netherlands has to offer. This route is excellent for the novice mountain biker who wants to climb a little, wants to enjoy the scenery and doesn’t feel a need to be challenged that much in terms of skills.
The MTB route Amerongen also uses the well-maintained flowy trails of the Utrechse Heuvelrug, but adds more challenging trails into the mix. This MTB route has a variety of trails that offer a challenge for the average mountain biker and the nature areas invite you the watch the beautiful scenery when you’re not on the single tracks.
You might shout to get hikers out of the way or just blast right past them. But there’s also a politer way, a way that the next time he sees a mountain biker, he doesn’t poke a stick in your front wheel. I’m checking out six compact bells in a price range up to 15 euro’s and subject them to several tests, including loudness, impact and ease of use. So, let’s first take a look at the contenders.
Giro Cinder MIPS Review: An Unintended Crash Test February 4th, 2018 | Written by Jeffrey | MTB.guide
While it’s popular bigger brother, the Giro Synthe, has all the features at a premium price. The Cinder offers nearly all the same features at only half the price. MIPS is getting more and more integrated on new helmets, like the Cinder, but there still remains a lack of testing results. And I, involuntarily, took one for the team in this one...
