Thought I'd start a sticky with input from everyone on their best riding tip for other riders, new and experienced alike. I'll kick it off with one from me: Lead with your shoulder Your shoulder is what ultimately steers the bike. Leading with your shoulder helps ensure correct weight balance and shifting. Turning left, lean in with your left shoulder and let it lead the way. It takes your mind off what the handle bars and front wheel are doing, and lets your unconscious mind and the bike work out the lean angle and line for you.
