Getting into biking can sometimes be intimidating, whether mountain biking, road biking or even bikepacking. Don’t let it scare you. The key is to start small and gain your skills. REI offers some great beginner bike maintenance classes as do many local bike shops. To begin biking, all you need is a bike, a helmet, and some essential bike repair tools for on the go fixes.  On this page, you’ll find all of our best biking blog posts, including our favorite trails, gear, and tips for hitting the trail.
