How to corner - Ridesmart

Home » Insight Zone » Skills & Techniques

When cornering in a group, communication is key - signalling tight turns is helpful and offers a warning that the riders around you are slowing down.

When braking, it is typically best to apply pressure to both the front and rear brake evenly, ideally before you enter the corner. Leaning your bike into the turn and keeping your body low will increase the available traction in the turn itself.
