When you are able to get off and jump back on your bike smoothly or start off uphill, you save a lot of energy in training and some precious time in races.
If we stop at any point during a climb, we also need to be able to get back on the bike and ride on. First we need to make sure we are in a lower gear before starting off again. The starting foot is always clipped to the pedal with the crank matching the angle of the down tube of the frame. The aim is to get into a fluent forward motion and keep going. Only then do we try to clip the second foot into the other MTB pedal.
Sometimes the bunny hop technique does not do the job and we are forced to get off the bike. Here, we can use a technique we know from cyclocross. However, it takes some time to get fully familiar with this technique.
In this video, you will learn how to get off and back on your bike smoothly.
The best and fastest way to learn to control your mountain bike is with a professional instructor. We provide such opportunities at our MTB camps.
