Mountain biking and cycling is a most adventurous sport as well as a backcountry experience. You will enjoy your tour more if you get in some riding experience. Go for a couple of months pedaling on an exercise bike. Always carry reliable and accurate maps.

Essential Skills
Get familiar with "technical single track," if you want to ride.
