This is a video with three drills to try that I find help riders break through plateaus in their progression towards Log Hops, Bunny Hops, and Jumping.
The Three Drills include:
- An off-bike drill that helps you feel what it is like to push into the handlebar and front wheel
- A manual practice focused on moving your hips down then back in an L shape
- A front wheel ‘tap’ drill that is functional for getting over logs but takes the first off-bike drill and applies the concept of pushing into the bars into this ‘level 4’
For a progression of the 5 stages of log Hopping check out my video that Canadian Cycling Magazine produced HERE
