  • The Ultimate Guide to Mountain Biking in Winter | Cycle Wild Scotland
    for winter trails A good wet lube for your drive chain and keeping it as clean as you possibly can Check if you cables are weather sealed if you are doing a lot of riding in winter If you don t have them perhaps invest in some good mudguards Check out those brake pads on a regular basis because wintry conditions can take their toll Check out this quick video from the Global Cycling Network about prepping your bike for winter It s for race bikes but applies just as easily to mountain bikes Riding Skills for Winter Mountain Biking Now that you re suitably prepped it s time to get out there and ride and you will need to develop a few new skills for those winter conditions Things happen during the colder months those roots on the ground get a lot slimier mud gets everywhere and the twists and turns of something like a narrow track can present some thrilling challenges to any mountain bike rider Here are the first two tips You need to concentrate more than you would in the summer keeping focused on the path ahead and spotting any problems On a wet single track you need to be up out of the saddle with the heels back legs wide ready to cope with any sudden changes in the terrain At the same time it helps to keep your weight low avoiding the temptation to lean back If you want to go fast it s all about staying loose in the joints and keeping low so that you can move the bike easily in all directions Going Downhill Similar to running through a single track descents require you to stay low and dip your heels something that allows you to use the brakes a little more aggressively than normal Try to avoid twisting and turning too much it s often better to snake over some rocks rather than twist aggressively to avoid them That means you need to be prepared to shift your weight forwards and back as the terrain dictates Roots In winter roots can be pretty slippery customers so you need some good technique to master them If it s just a single root then there shouldn t be a problem with getting over the trouble is that most trails don t work that way and you re likely to come across multiple obstacles on your ride First of all it s a lot better to stay central on the bike than lean back but shifting your weight forwards and back can help you if there a multiple roots Compared to biking in the summer months it all comes down to your thought processes working out the right route across spotting the best path and using your body and bike in harmony to make the crossing as easy as possible in other words it all comes down to practice Hitting Corners With the wetter and icier conditions in winter cornering your mountain bike

  • 9 Mountain Bike Skills that you Really, Really Need to Master | Cycle Wild Scotland
    where you shift your body weight and takes a deal of practice to get right The best way to develop the skill is to start on a flat or sloping surface that means you won t have any other distractions Check out the detailed training session below from BMX champion Alison Dunlap and the three basic steps to a good front wheel lift Cornering Cornering at speed is a mountain bike skill that will help you pick up valuable seconds especially if you are in a race to the finish line The problem is that you ll be dealing with dirty uneven and muddy surfaces and it s easy to lose traction if you don t know what you are doing You should assume a low aggressive stance with the pedal facing the inside of the corner upright and your knee pointing towards the corner Whereas on a road you would lean into the bend for mountain bike courses you need to lean more of the other way by putting your weight onto the outside pedal unless you want to go flying into the undergrowth The trick for getting good at it is of course plenty of practice Berms A berm is a corner that has a bank on the outside edge which runs its whole length The benefit of this is that it allows you to go much faster round the corner because it provides a base for the wheels and the speed you can generate depends largely on how steep the berm is Berms can be quite shallow and incredibly steep and how you handle them depends on how confident you are Roots If you re a beginner or just intermediate one of the major obstacles you are going to encounter is the dreaded tree root They don t care they grow just about anywhere sticking out of the ground and waiting to send your mountain bike into orbit Many beginners make the mistake of braking suddenly which provides no traction and causes the bike inevitably to slip For roots there is one simple solution and that s unweighting If you ve already learned that particular skill then you re half way there You simply need some practice out in the country Off Camber Off camber is a great deal like cornering except that the landscape is slightly different and it s all about when you use the breaks An off camber is uneven which means that gravity is trying to pull you out of the turn It s a delicate manoeuvre but it you re on any kind of trail there s no way you can avoid them Take a look at the video below on how to cope with an off camber turn from expert Australians Jess and Norm Douglas Bunny Hops Bunny hops will set you apart from the competition and are pretty easy to learn on a standard road It s a good idea to be proficient with the front wheel lift and unweighting
