Introduction Mountain biking is an outdoor activity with growing popularity internationally. Prior to mid-1980s it was largely a North American phenomenon, but since then mountain biking activities have emerged in most continents, mostly notable in Australia and Europe (Webber, 2007; Pickering, et al., 2010b). The continued increase in mountain biking participation is accompanied by diversifying riding styles, including trail riding, cross-country and freeriding. Each mountain biking style is associated with different set of management issues. This presentation focuses on the management concerns about one particular style of mountain biking – freeriding.
