A few weeks ago Denise made me a great birthday present – a bike skill seminar – a thing I allways wanted to do!
At the first day we had some basic lectures at a parking ground, which means relatively flat area but tricky gravel ground! We got some instructions in basic position on the bike, right braking w/o leaving skid marks, and curve techniques. Advanced skills were lifting the front wheel and back wheel, and combining it to a “bunny hop” as well as handling switchbacks.
At the second day we tested the before learned tricks at real trails in the woods close to Kempten. The day ended with a superb trail along a so called “Tobel” (some kind of gorge).
Tobi, our teacher, was a really good one – allways relaxed and funny and very professional with a good didactical style at the same time! Thx for the great seminar …
