Skills: A quick and easy one is to practice your balance by seeing how slowly you can ride your driveway. Next, work on your cornering. Set up an obstacle course in your driveway or a parking lot. If you don’t have cones, use rocks or even tools from your garage and make a cornering obstacle course.
