British Cycling launches mountain bike skills videos
24th August 2017
British Cycling has launched its Trail Smart campaign - a series of videos designed to help mountain bikers gain essential skills and enjoy Britain’s mountains and trails.
The series consists of 14 videos, all narrated by former world champion and mountain bike icon Martyn Ashton. They were filmed in locations throughout Snowdonia, where we owe thanks to Natural Resource Wales for access to Penmachno Mountain Bike Trails and outdoor centres Plas y Brenin and Nant BH.
The videos see riders tackling a wide range of terrain using the following skills and preparation tools.
These are just half of the resources available from the Trail Smart series, which will help riders to open up new sections of trail and gain confidence to improve flow:
- How to climb
- How to wheelie
- How to descend
- What to carry
- How to corner
- Trail etiquette: how to behave on mountain bike trails
- How to perfect your bunny hop
