INSTRUCTIONS • The following slides are instructions on how to properly perform trail riding on a mountain bike
STEP 1 • When going down hill to improve control hover • Hover by pointing pedals horizontal to ground
STEP 2 • When going up hill assume standing position over seat • put some weight on back wheel to keep it firm on ground • switch bike into low gear to make it easier to pedal • lower the gear, less resistance will feel.
STEP 3 • When going over bump/object • before contact pull up on handlebars • This makes it easier for front tire to go over
STEP 4 • front tire has gone over a bump/object • lean forward on the handlebars, • point your feet down towards ground • lift back tire up and over with legs • Make sure you have momentum before hand
