Welcome to another TakeAim Cycling Skills clinic on log hopping. It looks like Saturday will have some unseasonably good weather so lets take advantage of it and get out to sharpen our log hopping style!

Do any of these things happen to you when trying to get over logs? You jam your front wheel. Go over the bars. Slam your chainrings or rear wheel. Make it over a log but are no longer in control of the direction you want to be going. Come out and we'll work on the proper techniques that will make your log traveling smoother and more controlled!

Bonus benefits! The skills you learn from good log hopping techniques will translate to other areas of your riding experience! Skip along root sections and controlled technical climbing are just two of them!

We will meet at the Belmont Plateau and work in the fields with some trail riding if it is not too wet. This session will be two hours and is limited to 7 riders. The price will be $30 a person.


On MeetUp I offer free rides with a skills emphasis and skills clinics that I charge for. The skills clinics are size limited and much more personal with an emphasis on repetition. Join a clinic one day then head out on a ride another time!

I also offer personal skills instruction for groups and individuals. Check me out at
