Is this for me?
You can handle rocky terrain and narrow trails, and have excellent bike handling skills. You’re comfortable and confident riding all-mountain trails with long, technical descents. You don’t mind the odd long day if it gets you to a spectacular and remote place that few other visitors will see. You’re not afraid to get out of your comfort zone and experience a totally different and fascinating culture.
You have an excellent level of bike fitness, exercising four or five times every week throughout the year, for at least an hour at a time
You are comfortable mountain biking up to six hours a day at a moderate pace, with snack and photo stops, for four or more consecutive days
You can tackle several serious climbs a day, up to 600 metres each
You are generally comfortable riding most types of terrain in different conditions: singletrack, double track, muddy, dry, loose, bedrock…
You can brake, use gears and corner instinctively
You’ll have a go on moderate technical features, such as small rock gardens, small drops and steeper sections, but may get off and walk certain technical features
You ride more than once a week throughout your biking season
And the ‘strong’ part of ‘Intermediate’ means that you will be aiming to tackle more of those moderate technical features
Can you tailor it for intermediate skill level and level 5 of fitness? Sure, we will swap a few of the rides with less challenging ones, with less bike pushing and no bike carrying at all.
Not into all-mountain/enduro riding, check with us for exciting cross country MTB tours options in Peaks of the Balkans and through Albanian Riviera.
