Mountain biking tips

If you’re only starting to dip your toes in the world of mountain biking, then here are some tips to get you cruising smoothly:

  • When you’re riding over tough terrain, make sure to keep your body loose, to allow your bike to roll over it. When riding over a rock or a hill, for example, lift up your backside and keep your arms and legs extended out.
  • Keep your eyes forward – if you see a rock or any other obstacle that you wouldn’t want to crash into, then don’t stare at it. Keep your eyes down the trail and try to rely on your peripheral vision to avoid them.
  • At first, don’t try to explode your way up steep terrain and hills. Ease into the ascent at your own pace, picking up speed if you feel like you’re able.

With a stunning 19km red trail, Castlewellan MTB Trail Centre is a must-visit for mountain bikers of all ages and abilities. Castlewellan Forest Park boasts one of Northern Ireland’s most famous lakes, a stunning Victorian Castle, incredible panoramic views, and now some of Ireland’s fastest-flowing singletrack; all just minutes from the lively town of Castlewellan. The red trail enjoys incredible parkland views before splitting off and winding past Castlewellan Castle and onto Slievenslat where the fun then really begins with some awesome descents before the rolling homeward leg back to the trailhead.
