Help me ride backwards!

Here is my suggested progression (skip to what you can’t do yet):

  1. Ride forward, ride a half revolution backward, then ride forward again. Practice with each foot until this is easy.
  2. Super idle. That’s riding a full revolution forward, a full revolution backward, then repeating. Go slow and try to keep your torso upright (rather than at an angle).
  3. Same as #2 except two revolutions.
  4. Same as #2 and #3 except three revolutions.

Also, follow harper’s advice and PUT YOUR WEIGHT IN THE SADDLE. If you can do three revolutions in control you can probably get longer runs fairly easily.
