Experience how riding a bike can become a lot of fun!


Handling turns

Press the bike inwards, the arm on the inside of the curve is extended, the other arm is bent. Keep your gaze ahead of you and press your outer knee into the bike frame for support.

The bunny hop
It takes a little time to practice, but it is not impossible. Move your torso backwards, and when your arms are extended the front wheel of the bike will lift up. Then move your hips towards the stem - this causes the rear wheel to lift.

Tight turns
...don't require magic! As you enter into a curve, keep looking towards where it ends and if possible keep your torso aligned over your legs in order to stand on the bike in a relaxed way.

Bike module 1
Uphill and downhill riding, as well as how to approach different types of terrain. Little tricks that have a big effect! With your pedal set at 1 o'clock and brakes applied, press on the pedal, then release the breaks and immediately sit back into the seat.

Bike module 2
Practising the basic position. How to remain actively engaged on the bike and ready to move at any moment! Keeping the pedals horizontal and elbows pointed outwards.

Bike module 3
Shifting gears and braking on easy terrain. How not to shift when the bike chain is under stress and preventing the chain from coming off the sprockets. How to apply the brakes correctly!

Bike module 4

Practice balance on safe terrain. How to make the transition from a wide riding surface to one that becomes steadily narrower. IMPORTANT: Always keep your eyes on the narrow area and not directly in front of the bike.
