Why Fall Is the Best Season for Mountain Biking

Fall is the absolute best time to hit the trails on a mountain bike ride. At Wildhorn Outfitters we’ve got your back with the raddest gear you'll need to make the most of it! Fall, with its crisp air, vibrant foliage, and days that are still just long enough on the trails, is a mountain biker's dream season. Here are the top reasons why:

Perfect Weather: As the summer heat mellows down, the temperatures in the Fall become absolutely ideal for riding. Not too hot, not too cold - it's the Goldilocks of biking seasons. Climbs are actually...enjoyable? (maybe we’ve gone too far...)

Scenic Beauty: The fall foliage transforms the mountains into a breathtaking sea of reds, oranges, and yellows. You won't find views like this any other time of the year.

Trail Conditions: With the summer dust settled and the trails less crowded, you'll enjoy smoother and more forgiving riding conditions. Less dust means more traction – and that's a win-win!

Year-End Adventure: There's something about the Fall that makes it feel like the grand finale of the year's adventures. It's the perfect time to wrap up your biking season with a bang! Not to mention it’s time to get stoked for ski season!

Gear up with our long sleeve riding jerseys. Crafted with drirelease technology, these jerseys wick moisture quickly to the outside of the fabric. This keeps you dry and warm in cooler temps, and cooler during warmer rides due to its breathability. These jerseys are perfect for layering or even as a solo layer in the spring and fall. With a performance fit and soft feel, these jerseys will be one of your main go-tos.
