Thanks to more than 80 miles of single track, the Mammoth Mountain area is a true outdoor adventure destination for mountain bike enthusiasts. Whether you prefer the more beginner-friendly Discovery Zone or advanced trails with plenty of twists, turns, drops, and jumps, the one thing you’ll need is a good bike. Below, the friendly folks from ASO Mammoth, your one-stop shop for everything from premier Mammoth ski rentals and bike rentals to high-quality fishing gear, present some of the reasons to consider renting a mountain bike when you come to Mammoth during the warmer months of the year.
Have One Less Thing to Bring
Even if you’ll be driving to Mammoth, a mountain bike can take up more space than anticipated. This is especially true if you’ll need to bring additional bikes for other riders coming along with you. By renting bikes when you get here, you’ll be able to free up space and conveniently get what you need once you arrive.
Make It Easy to Give Mountain Biking a Try
Mammoth Mountain is home to trails appropriate for a broad range of skill levels. Therefore, if you’re just getting started with mountain biking, you may not have your own bike, or you might not be sure if this is an activity that suits you. By renting a bike, you’ll be able to explore beginner trails with a rental bike that’s also appropriate for your skill level—and without any obligation beyond this point.
Gain Access to Newer Bike Models
Many of the Mammoth shops that rent outdoor equipment tend to stock more current models. You may appreciate having access to newer styles of mountain bikes if you have an older one you’re not ready to give up just yet. This is also a good way to check out newer models without actually having to invest more than just the rental fee.
Avoid the Need for Repairs
Yes, it’s possible that a rental bike could have an issue or two that needs to be addressed. However, as long as you’re not responsible for the problem, the shop should fix it at no charge or simply give you another mountain bike to use instead.
Be Able to Bring More Outdoor Essentials
By renting a mountain bike when you come to Mammoth, you’ll be able to make room for some other important outdoor essentials or accessories that are often easier to transport. This is a list that typically includes:
• Reusable water bottles
• A backpack that can be stocked with a phone, first aid kit, and other handy items
• Other gear (e.g., camping equipment, hiking-related items, warmer clothing for cooler evenings, etc.) you might need for other planned activities
Have Access to Mountain Biking Accessories
Oftentimes, when you visit an outdoor shop in the Mammoth area, you’ll also find an assortment of related accessories. Whether you’re an avid mountain biker or a beginner, it’s easy to forget about accessories you may need. From extra chains to helmets in varying sizes, there are many related items you can pick up as you rent your bike here.
