One of the greatest things about mountain biking — and one of the scariest things for beginners — is riding your bike down all sorts of things: steep slopes, vertical ledges and even big drops.

The way we teach it, you use the same basic technique when you’re coasting down a hill, rolling down a ledge of flying off a monster drop. The only differences are the angle of your bike and the amount of sky between your tires and the ground.

Intro: this is simpler than you think >>>
