For Mountain Bike
The Berm Peak channel hosted by Seth Alvo (formerly known as "Seth's bike Hacks") is one of the best mountain bike channels out there because it is so easily relatable. He is a regular guy who loves mountain biking and knows a lot about it. He is not a Red Bull Rampage hardcore athlete, just someone that rides. His channel began with simple how-to videos for tricks, skills, and bike maintenance. Since then, it has grown exponentially. He documents exploits with friends, mountain bike travels, and a massive series of trail-building projects on his property. Pretty much what all mountain bikers want to do.
With almost two million subscribers, the mountain biking equivalent to GCN is the reference on Youtube for what a Mountain Bike channel should be. With videos for everyone who loves dirt: from the full-faced helmet downhill mountain biker to the lycra-clad cross-country rider, along with everyone and anyone in between. You can find bike reviews, tech, riding tips, experiences, and even Enduro World Series broadcasting here.
For Maintenance and DIY tips
Who never wondered how can I repair my bike or how this component works? Well, this channel is the solution to all your doubts. Newbies or seasoned cyclists need to know one thing or two about bike maintenance and repair: there's no better way than having your bike ready to ride and on point to enjoy the benefits of cycling properly.
To improve your training
The channel for cyclists looking to progress. Power, heart rate, planning, calibration... all the topics of training are covered, from the combined angle of experience and research. If you do appreciate science-based and well-researched training tips? Then Dylan Johnson’s is the YouTube channel you must follow. Dylan is a cycling coach who is not afraid to research, summarize and communicate about what works and what doesn’t.
The Col Collective
If you lack the inspiration of what cycling destination or climb to conquer next, The Col Collective is the cycling YouTube channel to watch. This channel will provide you with the inspiration and education needed to reach the summit of the greatest mountain passes in the world, with expert advice from Mike Cotty and the team. With beautiful settings and gorgeous photography you will envy him for not being there.
The Vegan Cyclist
You don't need to be vegan to watch this channel. The creator, despite being vegan, this channel is not about that. As he describes, it is a channel about "an average man doing above average things. I'm a family man who rides bikes and tells stories."He shares his experiences riding, training, and racing in his videos. He intimately narrates and distills his joy, self-doubt, and pain. It's easy for any dedicated rider to relate to his physical and mental struggles as he tries to improve. Seeing the effort that comes before achieving something great is excellent; this is where he excels. Actual storytelling makes us connect and feel empathy for the human behind the bike. If you need the inspiration to push your limits, this is the place.
