47yr olds 1st time on bmx
Myself and mark Atkins met Mark at the skatepark for his 1st ever ride on a bmx.
The first thing we covered was body position and foot position on the pedals. We then got Mark to ride the street section and flow over the area culminating in riding out of a ramp. we then covered riding into a small quarter at the end of the street section. After a while , we moved into the bowl area and worked on riding in and pumping around the bowl in figure eights before once again, riding out.
The park was very hot so we made sure Mark had regular drink breaks as he was tiring .
We looked at a larger flat bank to drop into but Mark was mentally tired and called an end to the session after 4 hours.
Great first session and I'm looking forward to next months.
