5 Favourite Things To Do On A Mountain Bike


Today on GMBN, we’re joined by a couple of special guests We’ve got Marc Beaumont and Phil Atwill and we’re going to talk you through our favorite things to do on a mountain bike *upbeat music* My favorite thing to do on a mountain bike is to drift I’ve got myself a nice big open area here, it’s not even really a trail But it’s nice and soft so its not gonna hurt if you fall off It’s got leaves on top, so it’s really slippy I’m gonna throw the bike in quite hard, turn in hard, with a bit of speed And use the back brake to start the drift So I’ll skid to begin with, then I’ll come off the back brake and try to ride that slide for as long as possible *music* There’s no better feeling As a World Cup downhill racer, my favorite thing to do is to try and ride a trail as fast as I can Regardless of what bike I’m riding *music* One of my favorite things to do on the bike is a skid 180 It’s quite a nice little thing to do getting warmed up for a ride Essentially, go in fairly fast, twist your hips, your shoulders, and apply the back brake And then fakey out smoothly I shall demonstrate Take 1 Like so *music* My very favorite thing about mountain biking has got to be steep, loamy trails that really challenge you But you can’t get that everywhere One thing that you can do everywhere is just playing around in the car park Doing 180s, doing hops, setting yourself little challenges, so here are a few of my favorites *music* All those things might be fun, but nothing beats getting out with a bunch of mates Riding the trails, seeing who is fastest, different lines, and just following each other So, Phil, c’mon, let’s go *music* Well, that was pretty good fun I think though that Phil wins this one for most amount of leaves sprayed off of his back wheel It was a lot of them, yeah If you want to watch some more videos from GMBN, then make sure you click on this globe to subscribe And you’ll never miss another one If you click down here, that will take you through to us playing again with a bike And if you want to see my Pro Bike on my Saracen Myst, just click down here If you like the video, then give us a thumbs up like
