“The Worth-While Ride”

Cornering form for switchbacks?

Since you did the clinic with the “Mere Mortals” riders in Silicon Valley, we’ve all been working hard on cornering by leaning the bike like you taught us, and in general, we’re getting pretty good at it. Some of us are wondering, however, if that technique applies to sharp switchbacks. Should we try to lean the bike in a switchback or keep it fairly upright (since the bike is going fairly slow compared to, say, a sweeping downhill turn)? Thanks, and we’re looking forward to doing another clinic with you in the spring.

Clinic success: Rippin’ in Fontana

Hey Lee, just an update. The Incycle team has been hitting up Fontana the last couple of Saturdays, and man we’re ripping! Very cool to see people pushing it, and having a blast, the skills you taught us are definitely paying off. Just being able to see lines better, being in the right position to attack, man what a difference. The guys are already asking if we’re doing it again next year!

See you later,


Jason, that is awesome. Thanks for the update.
