Downhill Mountain Biking combines different hobbies and therefore it is so especially for me.

No.1: To do handicrafts on cars / motorbikes / bicycles

No.2: Enjoying nature and doing holidays. While riding downhill mountain bikes you will visit the highest mountains, the deepest forests and see a lot of nice places within your surroundings.

No.3. Of course, doing sport. You can keep yourself in shape while riding downhill mountain bikes. The funniest part is of course, going downwards within seconds or minutes and enjoying the adrenalin rush. But the healthiest and exhausting part is going upwards with your bike and then rest for a moment, enjoying the silence and the nature before jumping toward the bottom.

It is no team sport which can be positive as well as negative. Normally you can decide how long you want to ride your bike or whenever you stop it and you are not dependent on somebody else.

ski
Sir Arnold Lun developed the techniques used in Down Hill skiing in 1921. This form of skiing involves high speeds. Advanced racers may go for 130 Mph. It involves greater risks. This form is similar to the Alpine type. It can refer to any sport involving a speedy descent down a hill. Examples of these sports are: mountain biking, mini cycling and boarding mountain biking.

Down hill skiing begins either at the top or near the top of a mountain. This area is specially prepared for the race. It is not for the public. Salt is added to the snow to ensure icy conditions are maintained through out the race. It also enhances the speed of the race and inhibits rutting.

Normally, gates that are of the same color are placed far away from each other. However, they are in sight of each of the flags.

Extreme sports have traditionally been the preserve of only the maddest, baddest and most dangerous to know, and of course rebellious teenagers keen to worry their mums. However, as with any trend worth its salt, the history and variety of ‘extreme’ activities – also known as action, adventure or dangerous sports – are more interesting than many people realise, and there are well-established organisations which can help make delving into their adrenaline-pumping world almost as safe as any other hobby.

The phrase ‘extreme sports’ only came into use in the 1990s, probably thanks to the first television coverage of organised events like the X Games. Many enthusiasts actually dislike the term, arguing that most typical activities such as bungee jumping, hang gliding and ice climbing are not ’sports’ in the sense of competing against others to win something, and the ‘extreme’ tag just smacks of mid-90s advertising hype.

Whatever you prefer to call it, extreme sports is a loose and ill-defined category which can include fairly mainstream pastimes like inline skating, BMX biking and snowboarding, (activities which can all involve elaborate spins, stunts and tricks) as well as more ‘out-there’ pursuits such as BASE jumping, freediving, zorbing, swooping, kite landboarding, volcano gliding, shark diving, octopus wrestling, nude parasailing, mafioso cuckolding (alright, that one’s not real).

The South East Asian region of the world – especially Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos – has become increasingly popular as a destination for those travelers seeking a more adventurous holiday than can be had merely sipping fruity, ice-cold drinks at your typical beach resort. However, an adventurous trip to these developing countries raises many questions and one of the first is what route to take, which I will try to answer in this article.

Most people with enough time would like to get a taste for all four that I’ve mentioned earlier, so I’ll concentrate on a route that includes all of them. It would take about three months if you spent a few days at each stop. Keep in mind that there certainly are options available that would allow you to skip countries or even shorten the trip to fit into a more constrained timeline, but this should give you a good starting point for further research.

As far as getting around, travel by public bus, train, and boat is readily available and often full of adventure after all, traveling with a busload of chickens or the occasional box of frogs just adds to the fun, right? However, those looking for a little more comfort will usually be able to find more upscale options.

First let’s get something straight: What’s extreme to you might not be extreme to the next person. And what’s extreme to that person might be tame to you. You see, “extreme” is relative. It means something different for everybody.

One thing everyone can agree on, however, is that when it comes to extreme sports, mountain biking-riding through the mountains on trails and dirt roads-is definitely one of them. Mountain biking allows riders to challenge themselves on difficult, steep terrain. It takes a vehicle that has been popular for nearly a century-the bike-and turns it into a tool for extreme adventure. Mountain bike racing draws experienced riders who think that just riding off-road isn’t extreme enough.

Even mountain biking itself has changed over time. Years ago if you owned a mountain bike, you were extreme. If you talked about mountain biking, you were living on the edge. You were extreme just because you were different.

Today it’s not that simple. Millions of people ride mountain bikes. To be an extreme mountain biker in 2007, you not only have to have a bike, but you have to know how to rip. You have to know not only how to ride but how to ride fast. Really fast. You have to tear down the steepest slopes, and up the hardest hills. You have to shred the gnarliest single-track and the muddiest forest roads. You have to be able to ride anything out there and do it in style. That’s extreme.
