How to Do BMX Tricks

Have you ever watched others do bicycle motocross (BMX) tricks on television and wanted to try them yourself? Now is your chance. It might seem unnerving but when it comes to it, you’ll see that it can be great fun. The following is a guide on how to do BMX tricks

Method 1: Bunny Hop

  • Start riding at a slow
  • Lift up the front tire by pulling up on the handlebars.
  • Push the handlebars forward while in the air. This will raise the back tire. The entire bicycle should be in the air at this point.
  • Land the bicycle.

Method 2: Barhop

  • Ride at a fast pace.
  • Raise your feet on the pedals.
  • Balance the bicycle with your body.
  • Jump over the handlebars.

Method 3: X Jump

  • Jump a ramp with your bicycle.
  • Lean back.
  • Centre your knees on the seat.
  • Turn the handlebars until your arms make an “X.”
  • Straighten the handlebars before landing.

Method 4: 180

  • Ride at a moderate speed.
  • Lift up the front tire by pulling on the handlebars.
  • Push the handlebars forward while in the air.
  • Twist both shoulders and your head toward the back tire.
  • Land the bicycle. You will be facing the opposite direction.

Method 5: 360

  • Ride at a moderate speed.
  • Lift the front tire by pulling on the handlebars.
  • Push the handlebars forward while in the air.
  • Turn your head and shoulders toward the back tire. Keep your knees bent while doing this
  • Land the bicycle. You should have completed a full rotation in the air.

Method 6: Bar Pin

  • Allow your bicycle to begin rolling.
  • Slightly pinch the seat with your inner thigh. Keep the pedals flat while you do this.
  • Pull on the handlebars to raise your front tire.
  • Spin the handlebars while the front tire is off the ground.
  • Catch the handlebars once they make a full rotation.

Method 7: Front-jam Endo

  • Ride at a moderate speed.
  • Lift up either foot.
  • Jam your foot in the fork at a 50-degree angle. The fork is the area between your front tire and the frame of the bicycle. Your back tire will raise, which completes the trick.

Method: 8 wall ride

  • Ride towards a wall at a moderate speed.
  • Do a small bunny hop onto the wall.
  • Pedal the bicycle as you head towards the wall.
  • Lean away from the wall and land the bicycle on the ground.

Tips

  • Make sure your bicycle is properly maintained before attempting any tricks.
  • Wear flat-soled trainer or tennis shoes for proper adhesion to the pedals while performing tricks.
  • Wear gloves that cover each hand entirely while performing tricks.
  • Wear socks that are high enough to at least cover your ankles while doing tricks.
  • Wear a full-face helmet while performing tricks.
