riding backwards

for the people that know how to ride backwards (e.g: not ME), do you feel that
the amount of time it took to learn to ride backwards is about the same amount
of time it took to ride forwards?

Re: riding backwards

It took MUCH less time to learn to ride backwards. You know the movements it
takes to maintain your balance. Now you just run them in reverse.

Mass your practice into half-hour or hour periods fairly frequently. It took me
about 4 sessions to be able to ride backwards somewhat consistently. I’m still
not very good at it, but, after a few minutes of warm up, it comes back to me.

A note of caution. Learning to ride backwards is how I broke my wrist. You fall
in unexpected directions. I would wear wrist guards and a helmet.
