Publisher Comments:

An unprecedented new look at mountain biking and trail riding techniques from the author of The Art of Cycling
 
Riding obstacle-strewn singletrack trails on a two-wheeled machine is one of those seductive challenges that can never be fully mastered, even by the most talented and experienced. In The Art of Mountain Biking, Robert Hurst focuses specifically on this deeply complex art of riding trails. From page to page and switchback to switchback, he chases the mysteries that make trail riding so difficult—and so rewarding—from the application of “soft power” to the biomechanics of balance and vision, and from the philosophy of line choice and the Riccatti equations that describe the path of the bike’s rear wheel to the nature of dirt itself.
 
Built on the author’s personal quarter century of experience and the tried-and-true wisdom of many other veteran mountain bikers, this environmentally aware and darkly humorous manual provides unexpected information that will be indispensable to both novices and experts. Throughout, Hurst explains with clarity, revelation, and a healthy dash of wit the ins and outs of riding a mountain bike.
 

Synopsis:

The Art of Mountain Biking gets deep inside the subject mountain biking, deconstructing it from yet-to-be explored angles, and explaining the technique of trail riding like no one else ever has.
