In this Quick Tip Victor answers a question about riding downhill from listener Marcus in Australia. A lot of people are nervous about going downhill fast on a bike. It can be a lot of fun but you have to have confidence.
Victor’s non-scientific advice comes in two points:
- Point one is to trick your brain to build confidence
- Point two is to keep the bike stable by weighing the pedals
Victor also addresses some common problems faced when riding downhill:
- High speed wobbles and how to stop them
- When decending how do you use your brakes?
