You guys ask for another bunny hop
tutorial, so here we go again. I’ll try to explain things a little differently this time to gain some perspectives we may have missed the first time around. Firstly, before you dive into bunny hops, you may want to consider learning some of the other ways you can get up and over things. For instance, lifting your front tire onto
something and pushing forward is a great way to start learning the motions It’s also a very useful mountain biking
skill. Before you do this or a bunny hop, you need to master getting your front wheel off the ground. Riding on your rear wheel without pedaling is called a manual, but you only need to pop up for a second to bunny hop. Make sure to keep your arms straight.
Bring your body weight back as far as possible. Master doing manuals, and bunny hopping will be much easier. Once you have this figured out, you want to push forwards and up on your handlebars to get into a bunny hop. Your palms and thumb will be pushing up on the bars from the back side, heaving the bike upwards. This is the key to doing a really high bunny hop. As you’re doing this, bring your legs up. It’s worth noting that this demonstration is on platform pedals, so I stress that it’s your arms doing all the work. The only reason we bring our legs up is to keep them from holding the bike down. Once you master bunny hopping you’ll be hopping up all sorts of things. For more tips and techniques watch my tutorial on how to manual, how to side-hop, and my original “how to bunny hop” tutorial. thanks for watching and we’ll see you next time.
