Why should you learn bad ass skills? The more control you have over your bike, the more bad ass you are. I don't even know how to bunny hop, so I'm super excited about this opportunity.
Mark is a mechanic at Sunrise Cyclery, and a touring BMX professional that has been competing in BMX competitions for 40+ years, and instructing for over a decade. He assures me that there will be something for all skill and comfort levels. You won't be pressured to do Mark's favorite trick if all you want to do is practice your track-standing balance. But if you want to try busting fat skids, GO FOR IT!
Mark told me that he is motivated to constantly learn new tricks because they are FUN. It also makes you a safer rider and increases your comfort level with your bike. Not to mention new skills mean new adventures! That curb will no longer stand in your way, and that ramp might start calling your name.
Sunday, June 3, meet at the Dunwoody College parking lot, we will start at noon and go until 2 or 3, depending on what people want.
Mark is prepared to teach us all sorts of bad ass things, but here's a list of skills we might cover...
- Track-stand/ balance
- Bunny Hop
- Mystery Skill/ WTF's choice!
Bring a sturdy bike. Really any bike you are comfortable on will work, but you probably don't want to bring a cruiser. Fatter tires will be easiest. Make sure you have platform pedals (not clipless) on your bike, and please wear any safety gear that you need.
Disclaimer: Be bad ass at your own risk. We are not liable for any boo boos!
See you there, BAs!
