So, I went for a ride tonight. We have just moved and I am not that organized for riding, but always rushing. So recently I went to A Better Ride Bike Camp in San Diego where we learned that one of the best improvements I can make in my MTB is vision. Look through the turn they would remind constantly. Look down the trail. Etc…
How do you know if you are doing it right.
Well tonight in my haste to get out the door I didn’t put on any glasses. So once I got out there I realized that there were a lot of bugs and without glasses I had to tilt my head down and close my eyelids a bit so the bugs wouldn’t fly in my eyes. This is how it feels to not have good vision.
Then I was a little concerned that the trails might have snakes since it was a hot night after a rainy day. So I wanted to make sure I was looking far enough ahead so I wouldn’t run over or into one. Good vision.
Head up. Look ahead. Look far enough ahead to see a snake on the trail- that is further the faster you are going.
