Let’s face it, as much as we’d all like to spend every waking hour on our bikes, we all have to spend some time waiting in line, grabbing a bite or sitting on the crapper. Might as well turn that into productive time, right? Hence the beauty of Instagram, where you can feed your two-wheeled addiction by scrolling through some of the world’s top mountain biking images and creapily pear into the lives of the sport’s biggest athletes from the palm of your hand.
