On Sunday I went out for a ride to practice. Main problem in the past two months has been panicking on EVERY corner and overbraking, taking them slow and winding up very wide every time. That of course leads to more fail, and my ride gets tedious and un-fun quickly. So on Sunday I went out just to figure out what's going on, and I've found a brain-hack that appears to be working. Maybe it's a bad habit I'm learning and maybe not? I discovered that I was looking at either the outside edge of the turn, or trying to plot a line up the middle - keeping the eyes up, looking "through" the turn, but along the line of the outside. I think it was a "that's as far as I can go" fear-based reason for looking at that edge. I somehow managed to nail a few corners (after an hour out there!) and when I was going back over it in my head I realised that I had changed where I was looking. I was following (with my head/eyes) the inside line towards the corner, then after the apex tracking the long view up the inside of the corner. It felt like moving my focus a few degrees from the "outside" to the "inside" completely changes my reactions to a corner. On the way home (and to work and back today) it seems to have entirely smoothed my corners out. I was having big trouble with roundabouts, but now I'm seeing them as two very easy turns .. check the inside on the left, then the right .. and you're through! I've nailed the right-hand-turn-roundabout next to my house twice now. I did a lot of googling but can't find much talk about the same idea - that moving the focus to the inside of the turn and running sight up the inside rather than the outside can make such a difference. Thoughts? Am I learning a bad habit? Discovered a cool trick?
