I’m getting better at the skinnies at Leb. Instinctively leaning the bike instead of turning the handlebars is the key.
Above: Last week was the first time I made the right hand turn on the man-made skinny. I used a front wheel hop at the apex of the turn.
Above: I made this log for the first time about 6 weeks ago. Last week, I almost did it again, ending up a couple feet short.
Above: I got about 3/4 of the way up this log last week. My goal is to get all the way up, do a sharp turn around on the hillside, and then go all the way back down… with no dabs or falling off, of course.
Once that happens, I’ll still have a ways to go. Look at this video for some amazing skinny rides:
