Picture you just bought a new sports car, but its a manual transmission. You know the car is fast, smooth and looks great but you can’t drive stick. So lets get to what South Bay Trikke can do for you. Show me how to ride a Trikke!
We want you to get out there and enjoy Trikking from the beginning. This is where we come in. Join us for a training session scheduled throughout the Month. See our calendar for times and locations.
You may have a group of you and your family, friends, coworkers or even a local school program that is interested in learning more about the Trikke. Get the group together and we’ll bring our demo Trikke’s to you and show you how to ride. This by the way is the best way to size you up into the trikke that best fits you. This is nice to know before you buy one. We begin with 3 rules of thumb:
Know Your Terrain
Paying attention to the approaching incline or curve in the road is exciting once you have your asanas in your “tool kit.” Asanas are Trikke techniques, which we teach during level 2 and 3 lessons. Once you get them down you’ll then be able to choose which asana technique will be the best choice for what’s coming up in your ride.
Rhythm Is King
Keep it steady. Keep it consistent. Keep your form. A faster rhythm creates speed BUT this does not mean that you are breaking the smoothness and basic rhythm you have. Think of it this way, a beat is still a beat even if it slower or faster. What you want is to develop a riding rhythm that even if you speed it up, your form “stays” the same. You don’t start jerking or breaking down your form–you just take your core form and speed that up as your physical conditioning and riding ability allow.
Protect Your Momentum
Remember that at all times, the Trikke is moving forward. Your body must learn to develop a rhythm that captures the moment of attack when the Trikke gains the most forward momentum by your body movement. If your body moves forward when the Trikke is naturally on the forward arch you gain momentum and speed and the ride becomes so much easier! Don’t break your momentum by moving backwards or shifting weight in the opposite direction. Get attuned to the motion and harness that forward momentum!
We offer an intermediate class where we take the basic riding ability and begin to explore the many techniques to improve your skills. We have put together a few Trikke “asanas” to help elevate your riding experience. We give you tools and we practice acceleration techniques to improve your ride.
You will learn how to tackle many situations that you will eventually encounter out in the open road and/or trails. This class may be repeated several times at no additional cost until the rider is comfortable with the techniques covered. See calendar schedule for location & times.
Here, we are going to really push the limit with Trikke hill climbing and acceleration tactics. We tackle the advanced asanas and bring a sharper awareness to your ride. We will practice grade climb’s. Get ready to amaze your self with your abilities. It’s all technique folks, no kidding. Yes you work for it but if the technique is right it’s very fluid. Remember “Preservation of Angular Momentum”.
We will work more on the obstacle course.Package DealPurchase Level 2 & 3 at the same time and receive a 25% discount, paying only $30 instead of $40. See class details below.
