How Do You Track Mountain Biking?

Mountain biking is a thrilling and exciting sport that allows you to explore the great outdoors. It’s also an excellent way to get in shape and stay active.

But in order to make the most of your mountain biking experience, it’s important to keep track of your progress. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, tracking your rides can help you monitor your progress, stay motivated and set goals for yourself.

If you’re serious about mountain biking, investing in a tracking device is one of the best ways to measure your performance. Tracking devices come in all shapes and sizes, from high-tech GPS systems to simple pedometers.

GPS devices are great for riders who want detailed information about their rides, such as speed and route data. Pedometers are more basic but still provide important information such as distance traveled, time ridden, and calories burned.

For those who don’t want to invest in a tracking device, there are plenty of apps available that can help you track your rides. These apps usually use the GPS function on your smartphone to track information such as speed, distance, elevation gain and more. Some apps even allow you to upload data from tracking devices so that you can compare different rides side by side.

Finally, if you don’t have access to any sort of tracking device or app, there are still plenty of ways to track your mountain biking progress. Keeping a logbook is one way; simply jot down details about each ride such as duration, elevation gain/loss and route taken.


No matter what level of rider you are or whether or not you have access to a tracking device or app – there is always a way for you to track your mountain biking progress and improve upon it over time. By keeping an accurate record of each ride – whether it be through an app or logbook – riders can stay motivated and set realistic goals for themselves.
