Today, I will discuss five riding skills with you, including posture skills, pedaling skills, turning skills, uphill and downhill riding skills, and braking skills.
If you master these five skills, you can quickly get out of the ranks of novices and ride more professionally! 1、 Posture skills for the little friends who are not very proficient in riding, what is the normal posture? First of all, the first point: the upper body is low, a little overlooking, 10 meters from the road ahead, and the head is slightly inclined forward; The two hands are naturally bent, and cannot be too straight.
If the two hands are too straight, it is easy to feel numb and tired.
If the hands are bent, it is convenient to bend the waist, reduce the center of gravity of the body, and prevent the impact force generated by the vehicle from being transmitted to the whole body; Two hands hold the handlebar lightly and firmly, and sit on the seat firmly.
2、 Pedaling skills there are three pedaling methods of bicycle sports: toe down, free foot pedaling and heel down: 01.
Toe down pedaling is characterized by the toe down throughout the whole riding process.
This method has a small range of ankle joint movement, which is more conducive to improving the frequency and easy to master, but the leg muscles are always in a tense state, It is not conducive to passing through small places naturally (it is recommended to use it when accelerating, and the riding comfort is ★★★).
Freestyle pedaling at present, some excellent athletes mostly use the freestyle pedaling method.
This kind of pedaling method means that the angle of the ankle joint changes according to different parts during the rotation of the foot.
Freestyle pedaling conforms to the principle of mechanics.
The direction of force is consistent with the circumferential tangent formed when the pedals rotate, which reduces the motion range of knee joints and thighs, is conducive to improving the pedaling frequency, naturally passing through the critical area and reducing the dead point.
Thigh muscles can also be relatively relaxed.
But this kind of pedaling method is difficult to master.
(recommended for common use, riding comfort ★★★★ 03.
Heel down heel down pedaling method is that the toe is slightly upward and the heel is 8-15 degrees downward.
This method is rarely used in normal riding.
Only a few people use the heel down pedaling method when they make excessive adjustment during riding.
It is characterized by that the muscles change their state of exertion in a short time, get a short rest, and achieve the purpose of recovering muscle fatigue.
(it is recommended to use less, and the riding comfort is ★★★★) III.
turning skill 01.
Tilting method: the car body is in line, and inclines inward.
The center of gravity of the body is tilted inward based on the curve of the vehicle, and the person and vehicle maintain the same tilt angle.
Straighten the outside knee and subconsciously increase the force, as if you want to step down the foot (but if you really step it down, be careful not to slip and avoid falling).
Press your inner knee against the beam.
This is a good way to adjust your trajectory.
Reduce the pressure and reduce the curvature.
Pull the handlebar slightly with the outside hand.
There are two good opportunities to use the inclination: you can use the less sharp turning (less than 45 degrees) to accelerate and you can clearly see the wet asphalt road in the front but unfamiliar turning.
There are two defects of the inclination: on rainy days, although this turning technique can give you a good traction, its angle and weight distribution and arrangement are not conducive to the wet and slippery road; The tilt technique is not as sensitive as the corresponding twist.
Keep the car upright and lean inward.
Move forward until your nose is in line with the brake handle.
Keep the car upright, lean the body inward (enough to straighten the outer arm) and tilt the handlebar inward.
Bend the elbow of the inner arm to pull the handlebar back, while the outer arm pushes the handlebar out to turn the handlebar.
Keep your knees inside and keep pedaling.
4、 Uphill and downhill riding technology uphill and downhill riding technology is an important basic technology of bicycle riding.
Downhill riding Technology: when riding uphill, keep normal pedaling action, and do not use sudden force.
In general, it is not suitable to use standing or pull-up riding methods, otherwise it will consume too much physical strength.
When encountering a short-distance slope, it is necessary to make full use of the inertia principle of object movement and pedal easily.
When approaching the top of the slope, it is possible to ride standing up to improve the speed as much as possible and create favorable conditions for downhill acceleration.
When encountering a long uphill, you should adjust the transmission ratio in time according to your physical strength.
Don’t change the transmission ratio until you can’t ride and the speed is completely reduced.
You should resolutely avoid restarting.
When the slope is long or there is a steep slope, the standing riding method can be used alternately to adjust the forced parts and let some muscles rest.
Don’t follow the car too close when going uphill.
Due to the force on the uphill, the driving often swings left and right, and the collision may occur if the vehicle is too close.
Moreover, the speed drops significantly when going uphill, and following the car will limit your riding method.
Downhill riding technology to achieve the desired effect, downhill riding requires courage and wisdom, courage and meticulousness, concentration, close attention to the road ahead, and ready to deal with any situation on the road at any time; We should not only make full use of the inertia of the car, but also dare to take the initiative to step on and increase the speed.
When turning, the body and the car should keep consistent, lean inward, and keep the upper body and the car in a straight line to overcome the centrifugal force.
The inclination angle is determined according to the speed and the size of the curve, but generally not more than 28 degrees, otherwise there is a risk of slipping.
Control the speed before turning.
Gradually decelerate with the method of point brake.
When braking, the front and rear brakes shall be used as much as possible.
The front brake can be slightly advanced.
The front brake shall be used.
The direction of the front wheel shall be consistent with the forward direction of the vehicle.
Otherwise, the weight of the rider and the inertia of the vehicle will be limited, resulting in wrestling.
Release the brake after entering the curve to avoid unnecessary deceleration.
Do not use the rear brake too hard on the curve.
Otherwise, the car may turn around or slip..
