NOW is the perfect time to brush up on your mountain bike skills.

You can get tips on the go with the introduction of the mtbtips.com mobile website, an easy-to-use mobile version of the popular mountain biking tips website, mtbtips.com.

So now you've got no excuses. Just take your smartphone on your next mountain bike ride and click through to mtbtips.com to access step-by-step mountain biking tips and video tutorials on the trail, right when you need them most, in an easy-find mobile website format.

It's all there. Beginner tips, advanced rider tips, cornering, climbing, repair tips, mountain bike racing tips and more.

And speaking of racing, the first race of the Rockhampton Mountain Bike club calendar is coming up on Saturday, February 2.

This first race is a three-hour solo and teams event, and 90 minutes for the junior teams. Never raced before? Why not round up a team-mate and give it a go?

But if that sounds a bit too serious for you why not train up for the first short course cross country race of the season on Sunday, March 17. This ride offers two short laps for beginners, and three or four laps for the more experienced.

The riding course is fun and the casual club atmosphere is friendly.

All you need to do is get out and pedal. So grab the smartphone, hit the trails and let mtbtips.com help you make 2013 your year of mountain biking. See you at Sun Valley Choice Petroleum for the 8am beginner ride this Sunday.
