This is helpful in situations where one encounters an obstacle or unexpected twists and turns in the trail.

Proceed with caution—Especially on unfamiliar trails, one should always proceed with caution and ride slowly, particularly when rounding corners.

Wear the appropriate gear—In addition to wearing a helmet, mountain bikers should always wear appropriate gear that is both comfortable and protective. This includes glasses to protect the eyes, gloves to protect the hands, and padded shorts to ensure a smoother ride.
