Bicycling (South Africa) - - RIDES -

Find the sweet spot

The point at which you put enough weight on your front wheel to keep it on the ground, but not so much that the back spins.

Be light

You don’t want to carry a hy­dra­tion pack or ex­tra wa­ter bot­tle up here. Or bulk around your midriff (i.e. you need to be fit to tackle this mon­ster).

Ig­nore the voices

The one in your head that says it’s okay to stop... and the other from your legs that begs you to stop be­fore you do your­self a dam­age.
