10 MTB Tricks You Can Do Anywhere

A mountain bike is an amazing tool for escaping civilization and heading off the beaten path. Some riders might even say that “singletrack therapy” is the best way to cope with the day. Unfortunately, there are times when riders aren’t able to take their bikes to the trails due to lack of time or unrideable trail conditions. We’ve been there, and we know how hard it can be, but there’s no need to leave your bike hanging in the garage when there’s an empty parking lot right down the street. An empty lot can be a great place to learn new skills or improve old ones, and having better skills always makes the trails more fun when you finally have the chance to hit them. Here are 10 of our favorite skills you can learn in a parking lot.  The steps are quick, easy, and guaranteed to make riding more fun when you’ve mastered them.
