The Basics: Mountain Bike Skills You Need to Know- Scott Adams
In class, we are currently doing the biking unit, and I found that this article would be appropriate considering the unit. Scott Adams, the author of this article, goes on to tell us about the different obstacles while mountain biking, and how to overcome them.
He teaches us when braking is the smarter option and the physics behind actually braking. When braking while going downhill, Adams tells us which way to shift our body weight to better suit the bike, and the smoothness of braking. He also goes on to describe how to go uphill. Adams shows us the different gears that would make uphill biking less arduous, and he tells us which way to shift our body weight once again. These are a few of the things that Adams teaches us, and from the way the article is written, it seems as though Adam is a connoisseur of biking.
I recommend this article to someone who may be learning to mountain bike, because this article holds very useful information that someone could use to their advantage.
