Radical maneuvers.

Postby Shine_Spirit » Sat Jun 10, 2017 7:48 am

Do you like or are you curious about using the bike to do some radical maneuvering?

I never imagined myself doing these radical maneuvers that I watch on TV, but I never tried to do them (certainly for fear of hurting me). However, I am quite curious to try them someday because they are extremely interesting / exciting (but they seem to be quite tricky to do).

I could never see myself performing such dangerous bike maneuvers, simply because I am afraid. I think the most dangerous thing I do on a bike is ride it with either hand on the handles, I could do this very long as long as the trail is straight. I am quite okay by just watching more dangerous stunts than performing them myself.

If the radical maneuver you are saying are those acrobatic moves that lift one tire in the air or using a ramp to jump then that's only for the young. I don't think you should be doing that if you are a professional with a decent job for if you hurt yourself, what would happen to your job? And also those with families, you should be content in riding the bike in an ordinary way.

I have some curiosity sure, but it's something that doesn't appeal to me, not even downhill. I have a colleague who does it, he has a special bike and all the gear, and every once in a while he's hurt lol, so I don't envy that. :)
I love most outdoor activities!

These are things that can make me a little nervous, but at the same time when you can get them right it feels good and makes the ride that much more enjoyable. I am coming off a pretty lousy ankle injury though so maybe not the best timing for me.

I will stop with watching only as I am too afraid of hurting myself badly and I don't want to risk my life in that. Anyways, they are always enjoyable to watch on t.v or for real. :)

No, they are not for me. I love biking and often go for long road trips also I am planning to go to Victoria for Rail Trail trip which is supposed to be very exciting biking experience. You can watch it here for your ready reference-

We have couple of short rail trails in NSW but as per the blogs and first hand stories by friends the above mentioned biking experience something out of the world.
Here is what is available in NSW
