Mountain Biking can be done everywhere as long as unpaved roads exist. In certain places, Mountain Biking tracks are even specifically constructed for off-road Mountain Biking.
In some mountainous regions, mountain slopes used for Snowboarding and Skiing in winter are set up as Mountain Biking trails in summer. Mountain Biking trails are found in forests, mountain slopes, fields, and deserts.
Mountain Biking is sometimes done in relatively remote areas; it is vital to know how to fix a punctured tyre, to have basic bicycle maintenance knowledge, and to carry sufficient water and high-energy foods.
As a sport with speed and risk as one of its attractions, there is always a chance that a rider incurs a severe injury while hitting the trails.
Therefore, it is essential that the proper precautions are taken and that riders always wear the right protective equipment, which includes a helmet.
The most common injuries happen when mountain biker falls off their bike at high speed, either to the side or over the handlebars.
Contusions, abrasions and lacerations are among the most likely injuries, as are dislocated limbs and bone fractures, especially when the collar bone is vulnerable.
The severity of an injury usually depends on the speed and weight of the mountain biker (female riders are more likely to fall over their handlebars than men because they are lighter, thus sustaining more severe injuries) and the type of trail they are riding on.
