Tip of the Day: Stay Loose in the Rocks

We all come upon rocky sections of trail and usually our initial reaction is to tense up.  However, this makes our muscles tight which causes the bike to get knocked around.  Instead, stay loose on the bike and bend your elbows and knees.  Use your arms and legs to absorb these rocky bumps.  Imagine your arms and legs acting like a car’s shock absorber when it hits a speed bump.  This will keep the front end of your bike from getting knocked around, from side to side.

Relax and be confident.  You got this.
