Our Bike Trails

What Kind of Trails are at MERUS?

Cross Country (XC)

Cross-country mountain biking focuses on distance and speed instead of technical terrain. There's as much focus on pedaling efficiency up hill as capability down hill. An endurance type track with lots of climbs, singletracks, and less obstacles.
