I’ve experienced just about every cycling situation possible. We forget basic bike skills. Many 'experienced' cyclists have spend countless hours on the bike and yet have very few skills with which to use when they are most needed.
Developing and/or reinforcing bike skills is a fun and practical thing to do. We can all do with some more practice whatever stage we think we are at or however 'good' we believe ourselves to be as cyclists.
First of all, we need some basic equipment and a quiet, safe area to practice as this short video shows.
