  • Hints for riding in 30cm path

    Now that I have finished the hints for riding off of the curb, I figured I would
    try another one. This time I am giving hints for riding between lines 30cm apart
    for 10m. Once again, I am open to suggestions and revisions.

    m between two parallel lines 30 cm apart

    Depending on where you take the test you may ride on a 30cm plank rather than
    between two lines. In either case, you will want to follow these steps:

    1. Go to the start of the measured path. When I took the test they had poles to
    hang on to.

    2. Look straight ahead and go to the end of the path at a steady pace.

    Notes and Hints:

    Don't ignore the advice in step #2. If you look down and carefully try to stay
    on the path, you will probably end up watching yourself go out of the lines. If
    you can ride steadily, then you should be fine if you just aim toward the end of
    the path and go.

    If you can't stay in the lines, you will want to work on stabilizing your
    riding. Work on the basics: Back straight, lean slightly forward, keep your
    weight on the seat.
