I've pretty much decided I want to expand from road cycling to mountain biking.
I have the Stewart Buffer Zone about 5 minutes from my house. It offers a wide variety of terrain of varying difficulty.
My question is this: I've seen pictures in this forum of people riding over stuff that I wouldn't think a bike could go over. I guess it's what you consider technical riding.
So, before I go out and get myself seriously hurt, where can I find information on how to navigate this kind of stuff (recommend a book or web link). I understand there's nothing like riding to make you a better rider, but I'd at least like to have a basic idea of what to expect and how to avoid going over the handlebars.
Thanks in advance.
