AliG and I both did the Trail Bunnies skill course last Sunday at Manly Dam 9-3pm. It was a great course with some really good revision of the basics and some new skills. I was loving learning how to do front wheel lifts (aka wheelies) but struggling a bit. Had a major breakthrough and astounded myself with the momentum of the technique by managing to not only life the front of the bike but flip it entirely landing on my back like a marooned turtle. Who would have thought - moving beyond the "gorilla lift" to using rear wheel ratcheting could send you spinning like a rocket! All good and after a couple of days hobbling am now mobile once more, just a bit sore, and keen to get those wheelies perfected. Recommend the course to anyone sttting out or looking to hone their technique. Looking forward to getting serious in the "chicks with speed" next instalment.

I can't really remember how much it was - $70 or so? But it looks like they haven't had any courses for a while, unfortunately.
