Where to Ride?



5. Traveling

Traveling long distances by bike on a serious off-road terrain can be the most demanding way of mountain biking. It is usually done in stages and takes more days or even weeks. All the equipment is carried along in backpacks or rather bike panniers, if terrain permits their use.


TransAlp is a good example of traveling by MTB. It is a very popular crossing of the central massive of the Alps (Austrian, Italian or Swiss). It usually takes four or more days, one way by bike and by train on the return. Since some sections might be extremely difficult, only backpacks are used. But if you go for example on great wild high altitude plateaus in far East, then it is easier with bike panniers. 


As you can see there are a lot of possibilities. all you have to do now is ride your bike!
