Coolhandluke shredding the berms at Gisburn

A great group of guys from the Singletrackworld forum came up to Gisburn Forest today for a special ‘Stop Crashing’ skills day. No one argued about what tyres were best for the current trail conditions or what is the current top dog of the washing machine world. Instead we had a day of skills progression, good craic and a nice pint afterwards in the Dog and Partridge. We looked at body position, riding berms, cornering and riding rocks as well as the essential skills of trackstands, manuals, rear wheel lift and a little insight into bunny hops. Cheers fellas.

All the bikes were either designed in Calderdale or California

Stumpyjohn has built some of the trails at Gisburn. Here he is owning one.
