    Approximately two million people in Britain cycle at least once a week, and there are more than 80,000 members of cycling clubs.

    There are four main mountain bike disciplines, with the downhill and 4-cross requiring nerve, fitness and great bike control as competitors hurtle down hazard-strewn tracks. The cross-country - which is used in the Olympics - and enduro/marathon put the emphasis more on sheer physical fitness.
