Learn to show off with Ryan Leech

by 2

Whether it’s stone-flicking with the front wheel, feeble grinds or brake-free skids, there’s always someone in the group who’s good at them – and it’s usually not any of us. Now, trials star and skills tutor, Ryan Leech has put together a video course (similar to his Learn to Wheelie in 30 days, and Ryan’s Baseline Balance Skills courses) on his site and he’s giving it away for free for Christmas.

There’s a whole raft of free video lessons, teaching you everything from crank-flips (shinpads advised) to ghost-riding. None of them will make you faster or more athletic, but all of them are good fun to master and impressive to behold.

Chipps

Singletrack Editor

Chipps wasn’t around for the dawn of mountain biking in the UK, but he likes to claim that he arrived in time for second breakfast (about the time he shows up for work, then…) starting in the bike trade in 1990 and becoming a full time mountain bike journalist at the start of 1994. Over the subsequent quarter century, he has seen mountain bike culture flourish and diversify and bike technology go from rigid steel frames to fully suspended carbon fibre (and sometimes back to rigid steel as well.)

His riding style is best described as ‘medium, wheels on the ground, trail riding’ though he’s been spotted doing everything from endurance downhill racing to 24 hour cross country racing. He favours mid-travel trail bikes and claims to be wheel-size, gear, brake and tyre agnostic. In fact, his garage spans most bicycle flavours, taking in steel hardtails, carbon trail bikes, even a mountain bike tandem, along with road, touring and gravel/cyclocross bikes.

While he’s happy to chat about bikes all day, his real interest is in the people and places that bikes can introduce you to and he talks as fondly about the trails he’s ridden and riders he’s met as the bikes that took him there.
