Beginners Corner

- Mountain Bike Tales Editors


Everyone has to start somewhere, right? We were all beginners once, and we all had to learn the ropes. We remember the first time we cleared a technical climb, pumped our fist after clearing a log, rode a drop and popped our first wheelie. Well, now that it's all routine, we're trying to impart some of our wisdom for the beginners out there, so read up, go out and practice those skills, and for crying out loud, keep your safety gear on and the rubber side down.
