Trek Mountain Bikes - Riding a Tour
Author: Trevor Mulholland
If you are in the market for a new bike - or even for your first bike, you
definitely need to check out Trek Mountain Bikes. Trek Mountain Bikes have been
around since the beginning of mountain bike time, and they aren't going anywhere
soon - except maybe to the next challenging trail!
First you should note that trek designs and manufactures mountain bikes, as
well as street bikes, but the company does much more than that. As for bikes,
they produce such high quality rides that even Lance Armstrong rides a Trek!
What better endorsement could the company have than that?
Trek has a line of accessories that are highly suited to mountain bikers of
all ages and skill levels. Clothing and shoes, under the Trek brand are available
through the website. You can also purchase helmets and other safety equipment,
lights, locks, saddles, racks, packs, trainers, bike maintenance gear, trailers,
team wear, Trek souvenirs, and even computers for your bike! Trek even has their
own specially designed water bottles, and they sell nutrition bars and packs
Now that you know that Trek is all about bikes and mountain bikes - and fulfilling
the needs and whims of bikers and mountain bikers, visit the site, and start
building your Trek mountain bike. That's right! You can build your very own
virtual Trek Bike. You can start with just the frame, or select a complete bike.
You can choose the color scheme, and many other features as well - when you
have virtually designed the bike of your dreams, you can order it if you want
to! If you can't afford it just yet, however, you can save it, and go back and
look at it over and over again.
Once you've purchased your Trek mountain bike, you may be interested in a
Trek mountain bike tour. Trek also caters to mountain bikers with Trek Travel.
Trek Travel puts together mountain biking tours. You can plan your Trek Travel
vacation based on where you want to go, the type of trip you want to take, the
skill level that you are at, the dates you want to travel, or by selecting a
pre-planned event. These are often guided tours, and the guides are well trained
not only to make sure that you have the best biking adventure possible, but
also that you remain safe during your tour.
If you aren't quite ready to buy the Trek mountain bike, you can still go on
one of the many Trek mountain bike tours - and the bike will be provided for
you! You get to choose between the OCLV Carbon Fiber Trek 5.2 Madone road bike
and the full-suspension Trek Fuel EX9 mountain bike - and the bike is included
in the price of your tour. If you've already purchased a Trek bike - or any
other brand of bike - and you prefer to bring your own bike on your tour, bring
it along! Trek simply requires that you pack it in a bike carrying case. You
will, however, be expected to reimburse Trek for any spare parts you may use
during the trip, and you will be responsible for the care and maintenance, as
well as the assembly and disassembly, of your own bike.
If you aren't in the best of shape, don't let this keep you from the fun and
adventure of a Trek mountain bikes tour! There are easy tours available, where
you will average thirty miles per day, or less. The terrain will be flat, and
you can ride at your own pace, and riding is optional each day. If you prefer
something a bit more adventurous, there are moderate trips available as well.
With a moderate trip, you will ride 30 - 45 miles per day. There will be occasional
challenges and climbs, and again, riding is optional. Avid tours cover 45 to
70 or more miles per day and are extremely challenging. Choose the package that
is right for your abilities, as well as a tour that fits in with the other things
you want to do on your Trek mountain bikes vacation!
