London, UK (OPENPRESS) March 22, 2011 - Over the years, mountain biking has grown to become the sport of choice of people who like exploring nature in every adventure while keeping their bodies in top shape. Mountain bikers simply cannot get enough of the fun of driving through muds, rough terrains or unexplored paths - the scenic nature makes the journey worthwhile. Moreover, mountain biking helps enthusiasts develop their strength and endurance by cycling up usually difficult steep slopes.
The fun and adventure in mountain biking have inspired people to create communities for the promotion of the sport. Mountain bikers in the United Kingdom can turn to Biker.Vitosport.co.uk for insights, photos, videos and stories about biking, with dedicated stories relevant to the biking season.
Biker.Vitosport.co.uk is covering all mountain bike events in 2011, as the adventure continues with Mountain Biking UK Magazine and MTB Marathon Series. An affiliate of the Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport and Mercedez-Benz UK Limited websites, the blog has teamed up with Animal Relentless Bike Tour and Team Ashton Diamondback to cover all biking events all around the UK this season.
Biker.Vitosport.co.uk details that the opening round of the Chain Reaction Cycles MTB Marathon Series for 2011, powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport, will have four different courses to choose from. The event will kick off with the approximately 43-kilometre Exposure Lights Big Night Out Marathon on 9th April at Penmaenau Caravan Park in Builth Wells. This will be followed by the Sunday Spring marathon on 10th April, with 31-kilometre, 53-kilometre and 75-kilometre distance events.
Biker.Vitosport.co.uk also talks about hybrid bikes - a cross between mountain bikes and road bikes. Hybrids are known to offer the comfortable upright position of a mountain bike, with the lightweight and fast rolling skinny wheels of a road bike. This type is characterized by an upright position that allows riders to be above traffic, see more, and be seen by other users. Hybrid bikes may be ideal, but unlike trial bikes, they are vulnerable to pot holes, as they can be easily damaged like their lightweight road racing cousins.
