Don’t Look Down!
Remember when riding scary trails you should be looking ahead at where you are going. Don’t be tempted to look down at your wheels or the obstacle you are riding.
Keep Your Momentum
When riding narrow trails it’s important to keep your momentum. Keep pushing a hard gear to keep your pedal motion smooth.
Follow A Friend
If you’re riding a new trail with a friend who knows it, then it can be great to follow them down the trail so you can keep an eye out for where they brake and lines they take.
There’s No Shame In Pushing!
If you’re riding a new trail there’s no shame in pushing a difficult section or getting off your bike to take a look before you ride.
Walk The Track
Even top World Cup racers walk a track before they ride it. If you are coming up to a tricky section walking in first can be a great way to get your eye in and avoid any sudden surprises.
