Finding a Practice Area
Locate a safe, unchallenging area to practice your riding skills. Walk the area first to make sure there aren’t any unseen hazards that could trap tires, such as dips and holes.
- Select terrain that is at least 100 feet by 200 feet, containing two areas:
- An area that’s large, open, flat, and free of hazards
- A hilly area that is not too steep and is easy to climb on foot
- Set up a practice area with a tape measure and a half-dozen markers, such as sand-filled plastic jugs or similar containers.
