In this video you will learn how to mount a bike.
Developing a good technique will help you to be efficient and safe on the trail.
The three key steps are: running with the bike, jumping on the saddle and catching the pedal.
Stand to the left of the bike and start running.
Avoid starting on the right hand side of the bike as you could end up with some greasy chain marks on your legs.
When your left foot is in front, push off the ground and swing the right leg across.
Land on your right inner thigh.
Make sure the bike is vertical when you jump onto the saddle.
Find your right pedal while you are looking ahead.
