Taking the plunge and learning something new can be a scary affair. But everyone has to start somewhere, right? We’ve tried a lot of stuff over the years. Some things we’ve pursued beyond the basics and are still improving. Other things we’ve dabbled with here and there. Either way, we’ve been through the beginner stages and know what it felt like and what was involved. With that in mind, we’ve taken our own experience, and that of others, to create our beginner guides. They aim to provide basic information for those considering embarking upon something new, from mountain biking and trail running to Nordic walking and slacklining, and many other things in between.
