3 Drills to Improve Balance on the Bike

This post will provide you with 3 drills to improve your cycling skills and balance. While they are not presented in the order I would always use and certainly a step (or three) beyond what a beginner may be comfortable doing they do provide you with some ideas and variations to scale back from, work towards or challenge yourself with today!

 

Covered today
1) The Outrigger – Putting a Foot Out for balance and to ‘dab’ versus falling over or putting out your arm
2) Ratcheting – use a partial pedal stroke and move your body around while STANDING
3) The bump and run – a fun challenge that progresses your ratchets and moves you towards the track stand

Let me know what you think of these 3 drills!

Learn to Log Hop – Three Drills to Try

 

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

Providence Cyclocross Festival 2014 – Links, Photos, Video

Providence was perhaps the best Cylocross race I have been at in terms of organizers planning for a festival and full weekend of events. With 1200+ racers and 8000+ spectators the numbers tell the story. Exiting courses, food vendors, and beer gardens make for a super weekend of spectating .

I wasn’t feeling super over the weekend but managed some mid pack finishes and enjoyed the beer garden jump and a few laps with Mike Garrigan on Day 2.

Paris to Ancaster / Gravel Grinder – 1 Week Out Tips

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EwKLaw5Yns]

My friends over at Paris to Ancaster wanted to know my thoughts about a week out from this big early season gravel grinder race.

Don’t Overdue it with training this weekend.

Build confidence with some key experiences (hard start, clipping in , hard hill after an hour or two of riding, riding with people, riding race bike)

Test your food, gear, bike and be ready to do work next weekend. Have a plan for each weather situation

prepare well and it is just about pedaling and having a great time.
