Take a look at the excellent tips and techniques section of <www.muniac.com>.

That’s pretty much it…

While riding along, stop and jump quickly. Then go back and do it again. After not long you’ll be able to do it in a fairly smooth fashion, to the point when you’re not really stopping at all; the pedals stop turning very briefly as you begin your jump but because you’re moving forwards the jump isn’t just up but forwards too.

Rhysling has a picture somewhere explaining Dan Heaton jumping onto a car bonnet*. Start the way you mean to go on… :slight_smile:


  • Bonnet! Yes, BONNET! The front of a car! Mmmkay?
