Mountain Biking

8 Reasons Why Mountain Biking is Better Than Football

If you ever get into an argument in the pub, here's what you say...

Mountain biking. Much less likely to break an angry neighbour’s window than a football.

OK so I know they play football in the streets in favelas in Brazil, but try kicking a ball around most suburban cul-de-sacs in the UK and you’ll soon find yourself shut down and shouted at by some elderly woman concerned about her precious windows/roses/cat.

And even if you were allowed to kick a ball round the streets, you’re limited by the fact that a football pitch needs to be at least vaguely flat.

Despite its name, you don’t actually need a mountain to go mountain biking – as Danny MacAskill here so ably proves.

Shit, you don’t even need to go outdoors to have fun on a mountain bike!

Trials might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s still mountain biking and it’s still better than football.
