Tips & Tricks

Sometimes mountain bikers sound like they are speaking another language. Here's a few of our favorite biking slang:

bonk: to run out of energy or grow exhausted on a ride. "I bonked so early it was embarrassing."

clipless: misleading name for a pedal-and-shoe system where the clips or cleats clip onto the soles of special shoes. Called "clipless" because you can't see the clips when you're clipped in. Contrast with toe clips.

Lots more terms!
