And She’s Dope Too: Pumping, Manuals and Wheelies
May 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Fruit Loop Trails, Fruit Heights, UT.
Riding a pump track really hones the body position skill! Learning to pump takes a lot of practice. Pumping the bike teaches the rider how to move the bike with the terrain and begins the “bike dance”. This is not necessarily an easy one to learn, but it is a key skill on the bike. The clinic will be at a pump track so the rider can really learn how to accelerate your bike without EVER pedaling. It is Caterpillar: Confidential Green a lot of fun and a great workout!
A manual clinic is all about getting the front wheel up using the “Manual” technique. This skill is important when you are going fast descending and you are in a pinch and need to lift the front wheel. This is a fun and key skill to learn on the bike!
The quarter punch is a fun name for what your feet are doing on the pedals to lift the front wheel. The “quarter punch” is the BEST way to start a wheelie! It is also key when climbing up technical terrain. The quarter punch makes it a lot easier to get up the stair steps and big rocks on those techy Moab trails. This clinic will have every gal doing wheelies by the end!
