How To Do BMX Tricks For Beginners
Learn about how to do BMX tricks for beginners. Having a BMX bike is very cool all itself. But now that you have your BMX bike, you want to learn a few basic BMX tricks that look cool and are fun. Here is a few tricks to get you started.
- A common, but basic and fun BMX trick for beginners. While riding your BMX bike along, practice taking one of your hands off the handle bars. Be very careful when you first try this because it's easy to lose your balance. Practice in an area where you can't get hurt very easily. Once you have your balance completely under control, try taking your other hand off it's handle bar. Make sure you really have your balance down or keep practicing until you do. There are people who ride for a short distance with both hands off the handlebars and do it well, but they started somewhere too.
- Jumping your BMX bike up trick. While riding your BMX bike (kind of slowly at first) put an upwards pressure up from your handlebars to pull the front end of your bike up. Start by only having your BMX bike come up a little. Practice. As you feel more in control of attempting this BMX trick, try to pull the front end up a little more. Don't pull up too far though or you could knock yourself back and fall.
- Do small jumps. Put a rope or other small object on the ground. Get on your BMX and start riding. Jump over the object. Since you are a beginner, make sure the object is small, and low to the ground. As you get more confident, make the objects a little larger.
