What's good about XC
Okay, so if you don't know, XC stands for cross-country. In biking, this is the most common way of mountain biking. Although sometimes practiced on fire roads. The best way is, no doubt, single track. XC is usually fairly flat, with gentle ups and downs. No downhill style drops and hugely technical rock gardens. XC gives you the fun of regular biking and it builds your cardio for everything else. You're continuously pushing your bike farther and farther at considerable speeds. While most bikes for XC are hardtails, full suspension bikes have been gaining popularity. Good luck, and happy riding!
