Brakeless - not just for the pros!


Recommended Posts

Thought I'd have a go at riding brakeless this afternoon even though I'm not a competent trials rider. I didn't commit by removing the brakes, just avoided using them. This was helped by not trying to stretch my skills, just riding the bike with wheels mostly on the ground  attempting to navigate tight spaces between a wall and a few pallets. Lots of small English bunny hops and small pivots to change direction and reduce speed, leaning front into objects. A few roll ups onto double stacked pallets and across a small gap was about as daring as it go. It made a change to my usual session and felt valuable for balance and control. Was only out for half an hour, but wrists felt like they'd had a workout.
