Abstract The aim of the research is to verify if the long-term impact of MTB related to heavy-metal and hydrocarbons pollution is considerable and may require further investigation. Observing increase in demand for professionally established mountain cycling trails, we’ve asked questions concerning long-term impact of MTB on single-use trails. As most research focuses on macro-scale effects of MTB, such as soil erosion or habitat (plant and animal) disturbance, we decided to verify, if there’s any traits of accumulation of heavy metals from worn brake pads and discs and hydrocarbons from tyre rubber in trail surface.
