BIKE TECHNIQUE TRAINING

Thanks to our FunPark hall and our pumptrack facility, our bike guides have no problem holding bike technique training sessions. Sepp offers weekly sessions where you can learn the right gear change, braking, starting and balance techniques on the ramps, pipes and waves. The courses are usually fully booked because our regulars appreciate the advantages they offer. Take the lead on your next single trail or visit to the bike park.

What's it all about? A few snippets from our programme.

 

Two basic rules for turns:

Always look into the turn, never look out. Brake in good time before the turn 


The uphill technique:

The right uphill gear is the prerequisite for constant pedal pressure and an equally high pedal frequency. The steeper the incline, the further you shift your centre of gravity forwards. Shifting forward on the saddle and lowering your upper body keeps the front wheel on the ground.
Look around regularly to avoid straining your neck muscles.


The downhill technique:

Stand up in the pedals to help you absorb impact better. Keep your arms at an angle to your body for better steering and absorption of impact. Position your index and middle fingers on the brake levers. The steeper the decline, the more you should shift your position back.

 

The bike technique training takes place every Tuesday (subject to change).
