Every rider has their own riding style and skill-set. Some of us are great on the pedals, others can make jumps look incredibly easy, and some can navigate the most technical sections of trail with ease. We all view trails differently and have separate ideas of what we are looking for from a trail.
When you approach each ride, look to travel the lines that best suit your riding style and ability. Don’t be afraid to ride the line that is most comfortable for you. This might be the same or different from the line your riding buddy takes. Step outside the box and find your line. You may be surprised with the results.
