Mountain Bike Jumps Pictures
Cool pictures of mountain bike jumps with some stunning background scenery.
While just about anyone can perform a basic bunny hop jump on a mountain bike, advanced jumps are more elusive. The double jump is one of the more difficult types of jumps you can do on a bike. It involves riding a bike up an obstacle, jumping off the top of it and landing on a second obstacle with a downward slope.
Master the basic bunny hop before you attempt to jump a double on a mountain bike. Learn to time your landings, control your wheels and, most importantly, learn to determine precisely where you will land. There is no substitute for experience.
Examine the double jump carefully. Get a good idea of how much speed you need to clear the gap. Make sure you have a smooth, on-camber landing slope; an off-camber landing is a recipe for disaster.
