Look, Lean, Push
- Look - look through the corner to the exit, or if you can't see the exit look as far through as you can
- Lean your body to the side of the bike you want to turn - sliding across in the seat a little bit helps
- Push on the inside handlebar to tip add a bit more lean if necessary.
When I did the HART course, they told us that to turn the bike, you just look where you want to go and the bike will go there. That's true, but knowing a bit more and learning how to manage turns adds a whole new set of skills to your bag of tricks, which can be extremely useful in a pinch. And thus far, look lean + push seems to add a whole new dimension to my cornering, though I've still got a lot of learning to do!
