I'm new to mountain biking, would like some definitions.
I've only been riding a mountain bike for about a month, before that I hadn't touched a bicycle since I was about 12 years old (damn... that was over a decade ago now). I'm having a lot of fun just riding on whatever looks like fun, but I see all these terms being thrown around, and I'd really like to know the difference between some of these things:
Freeriding vs. Downhill?
what is "North Shore"? I come from a surfing background, when someone says "North Shore" I think Waimea Bay or Pipeline on Oahu.
There's a difference between Urban and Street?
Some of these things, like dirt jumping are pretty straight forward, but I don't know the differences between all these various sub categories.
