A mountain bike means adventure and freedom and children love those feelings at all ages. Children are always in search of something new and fun, they need to consume their energy in different ways and by facing new challenges.
The challenge of riding a mountain bike makes children proud of themselves, because it is not as easy to learn how to ride and fully enjoy a mountain bike. Although, of course, it is no harder to learn to ride a mountain bike than it is to learn any other bike. They can have a lot of fun with their friends when mountain biking and having fun is what being a child is all about. It gives them the opportunity to explore and to overcome what may at first seem difficult and daunting to them.
