Already at the time of booking, please tell us about your previous cycling background and the type of bike you own or rent; options include e-bikes, traditional mountain bikes, and fatbikes. 

Along the way, you'll get guidance on how to control your pace and balance, as well as the right downhill riding position. They are important skills when pedaling in varied terrain and riding on various downhill sections.
