When choosing a location for regularly (more or less daily or weekly) mountain biking, the key factors are the diversity of mountain biking trails, amount of available time, picturesque scenery and the fact that it is an area without conflicts with other users of the area. Worldwide famous bike parks represent the most desirable locations for visit, although most mountain bikers in Slovenia currently prefer to bike outside of them. This makes purpose-built mountain biking trails more popular, instead of biking on hiking paths – this way the conflicts with other users of the area (e.g. hikers and farmers) are reduced. The cultural landmarks of the area proved to be the least important factor in choosing a location, which is especially true for those who bike during the week. Popular mountain biking destinations are divided into two sub-categories – one, where respondents already mostly ride their mountain bikes and areas where they wish to ride their mountain bikes one day. Nine out of ten most desirable mountain biking locations are located in Europe and only one of them is in Slovenia. In contrast, nine of the top ten currently visited mountain biking areas are located in Slovenia, with the exception of Petzen.
