How To Ride Blind Trails On Your Mountain Bike | MTB Skills
Riding trails that you have never seen before can be one of the most intimidating things in mountain biking, especially if you’re following a local rider who knows them like the back of their hand. Luckily for you Blake and Neil have been out riding unseen trails in Patagonia and have some knowledge to share.

When leading on a blind trail it’s important to keep your eyes up and look as far down the trail as possible. Ride at a steady pace, read the trail, and always be thinking about what might be around the next corner.
Following a rider can be a little easier as you can spot where they might have run wide on a corner or taken a slower line through a section and adjust your line accordingly. If you’re following a local ask them to ease of the pace a bit as you may find yourself being quickly dropped, nothing beats local knowledge!
