    cycling home passed a school with a lone rider jumping up on to BBQ table. Great skills he must have been 8 – 10 years old. I cycled humbly on knowing not matter what improvements I make I will never be that good. For some stuff you need to be young again ha ha Drop offs are my limit.

    I’ll hopefully be there riding the same stuff tonight.

    I went in a course with Jedi. It changes everything. That and finding a great spot and a bunch of like minded folk who are willing to help and encourage and laugh at you when you are curled up in pain. That, believe it or not, also helps.

    I started out in my ‘trail’ bike (okay a Intense Slopestyle 1) before getting a big bike. That also helps.

    Hmm. Not sure. I go up there regularly. If you want towing into anything or want to borrow a bike for bigger stuff let me know and we can hook up

    Cheers for the offer but I’ll try and do the smaller stuff first 🙂

    What do you call the smaller stuff? You won’t do anything riding on your own tbf

    Get the basics like dropping off small steps and being able to do a proper bunny hop first. Then you have the skills to give you confidence to go to the next level.
