17 Things To Do Now the Downhill Mountain Biking Season is Over

Spoiler: most of them are just going mountain biking

The world’s best downhill mountain bikers gave the 2016 season one hell of a send off at the World Championships in Val di Sole, with Rachel Atherton wrapping up the perfect calendar year and Danny Hart putting the cherry on top of a rampant return to form.

But does that mean that it’s all over now till next April? Do we now have to go back to watching Countryfile and trying to pick out lines behind Alan Titchmarsh’s head every time we need some inspiration?
