How Improve Your Riding NOW!
by lee uehara
Do you want to know how to improve your riding RIGHT NOW?
Two words: Look. Ahead.
It’s counter-intuitive, but if you look ahead and keep your eyes level with the horizon, your riding will become smoother just about, well, immediately.
Too often, children and adult riders look DOWN. If you do this, riding will feel unstable, shaky, and you won’t go as far as smoothly. Maybe you look down at the ground, maybe you look down at your pedals, and even worse, perhaps you look down when slowing down or stopping.
So, next time you’re on your bicycle try looking up and ahead! And, keep your destination in mind when you embark on your ride. This helps: keeping the end in mind when starting, well, just about anything.
And turning: look ahead and through the turn before you enter it. It will feel awkward at first. However, after some time you will notice that you’ll be able to corner more smoothly – this is a favorite word around here – and faster.
