Going outside in nature and experiencing the beautiful trails can bring a lot of joy. That being said, there are several steps you can take to minimize potential risks of the outdoors. We created this list of 10 tips to help keep trail enthusiasts safe.

Plan your route Know where you are going and estimate how long it will take you. Trail miles are often a lot slower than road miles, so think. And now that more runners are going off-road, accidents are likely to increase. Here are five tips for staying safe on the trails: Keep in Touch. When trying a new trail, go with someone who knows it-and bring a map, compass, cell phone, and whistle. If you do go solo, give someone a map of your.

Safety Tips for Trail Runners Tips for Running Smart. The first part of trail running safety is making sure that you remember basic running techniques. 1) Stay alert, even when you’re tired: It’s easy to get sloppy towards the end of a run. Your form goes, then your mind, and before you know it, you don’t even remember the last mile of trail.

RRCA General Running Safety Tips. DON’T WEAR HEADPHONES. Use your ears to be aware of your surroundings.

Your ears may help you avoid dangers your eyes may miss during evening or early morning runs. Run against traffic so you can observe approaching automobiles. By facing on-coming traffic, you may be able to react quicker than if it is behind you.

Going off road provides a unique perspective and offers the opportunity to see places you would not otherwise see. It also provides a great challenge, as. Whether it’s your workout progression or remembering to run against traffic, we need to train smart.

Always. In that vein, we polled our Facebook community for the best safety tips to keep in mind while running. Here’s our top 10: 10. Plan your run. Running off road can be exhausting at first, and it may take you up to twice as long as your normal run, especially in the early stages of training.

It’s wise to leave your ego at home, slow. Off Road Trail and wheeling tips. These simple off road driving tips may save your skin or make the difference between a miserable day at the trails and having a blast.

Buddy System. Drive with a buddy if you can. If you get stuck, you have some help, and if there is. When we run the same route, or the same two routes, day after day, it not only makes us easy targets for stalkers, we also have a tendency to zone out. Altering your route makes you harder to track and keeps you more alert during your run because you are navigating unfamiliar terrain.

“Take short, quick steps so you can react,” Jurek says, adding that your stride rate should be about 90 per minute. Road shoes work, but trail shoes have more traction and protect your feet from.

  • You said it all. I run both on the trails and on the road for exactly the raisons you said in the video. For sure running on the trail is much nicer than running on the road. It is hard to beat running in the shade of trees on a hard packed dirt trail. Lately I have started doing some speed work on reliable unpaved surfaces and I am geting very good results. I will seldomly run on paved surface but I will do it occasionnaly to work on not making noise with my feet, I am a very heavy runner so I have to constantly work on landing smoothly to prevent injuries. It is nice to hear that so many runners enjoy trail running. Have a pleasant day.

  • Just came back today from 30 miles of gravel, dirt and some sand on my Multistrada, 2 up. I remembered this tips 1/3 of the way in and it made the rest of the trip feel much more enjoyable! Relaxing and letting the bike do its job was key.

  • For me off road is the better training option as i struggle with repetitive strain injuries. That I don’t seem to get when runing trail or fell.

  • I use RideID as a tracker so my wife can see where I am and if I stay in 1 position for certain amount of time it sends a messave to her.

  • One safety aspect not covered, which is a concern in many parts of the world, is crime.

    Stories abound or people getting their bikes stolen while on the trail/road. There is safety in numbers, but there’s even groups that have gotten their bike stolen from them. I see Facebook posts in these parts of the world, Latin America, of people sharing their stolen bikes with the hopes of finding them.

    Best tips to reduce this risk: 1. ride with other people, 2. ride in popular trails/roads, 3. find guided rides with locals to get to know # 1 and # 2.

  • New to the float life myself at 45 years old… really wanting to ride my Onewheel to the train and there are not enough shoulders along the roads on my route. So I will be riding in lots of dirt and gravel. I tried yesterday and failed pretty epic-ly, the board feels super squirrelly. Can’t wait to try these tips out! Please keep the tips coming, I am watching every one of these videos and studying like a hawk!

  • But if there is a real zombie apocalypse you won’t have any time to do and make all that stuff so how would you and me and us do it before the zombies attack you

  • I would use my recurve bow and arrow to hold of the zombies with my dog while my family make a shelter on a raft and sail to the middle of the ocean and stay there with a large amount of food and filterd water

  • simples…. slow down and stay on your side of the road, its not rocket science ok and i said that in 5 seconds no video etc etc etc.

  • I go back into our fire roads here in the Santa Monica Mountains, I like to find an IN and OUT path with some long descents so on the way back I can do my hill intervals without having to repeat the same stretch.

  • Off road where ever possible, in fact I go out of my way to Target events that are solely off road and more importantly ONLY have 1 loop course. Multiple loop courses are a rip-off and boring!

  • Trails. All day, every day (if I could). Regularly drive 40min to run, the very few trails available to you in Chicago. My issue w road running is that it just beats my body up too much. Same footstrike over & over used to give me all kinds of nagging injuries. Once I jumped on the trail that all changed. I cld go much further on trails & actually get a few hills & feel great after, not beat up. I became a much stronger runner w less injuries via trail running. I am a city boy so road running is part of the game. Also like road running when visiting a new city to get a lay of the land. But if I ever have a choice…

  • I’m just getting into trail riding. I have started to allow my mind to just let the board go where it wants rather than to force it. Found some sweet terrain in some local woods! #AlwaysWearAHelmet great video, thanks!

  • I have been a senior regular runner for many years.Your video is very encouraging for all.Good work.I enjoyed it.Congratulations and best wishes from Colombo Sri Lanka!����������

  • I share my live location with the better half on Whatsapp for 8 hours. Just in case. She loves seeing where I go. I always have fitbit tracking my ride so it’s using GPS anyway. Battery it always fine even after 3-4 hours of use.

  • No mention of the East Africans who are the best runners with the fastest times at all distances who do nearly all their running off road?

  • I do trails on Saturday to give my body a rest from the impact of the road. I like trails for clearing my mind, and road for gauging improvements

  • I hate running on the road, always seems to hurt my shins. Although, I’m blessed to live 5 mins from the South West Coast Path, and that’s where I spend most of my time ��

  • 1:50 This. I would run exclusively off road for a time and then come back to the road and get shin splints. My racing is on the road, I have to run on the road, and I do about 95% of the time.

  • I agree with the benefits of both. I find road running a bit boring compared with trail, but road is a lot better for training sessions. The only downsides to trail running where I live are occasionally running through spider webs, and rarely, seeing snakes on the trail.

  • Love trail running but considering mountain lions were spotted on my favorite trail recently, I will stick to roads for the time being.

  • I’m a completely new biker, let me call myself a newbie! I like the way you are explaining. Have you any advice for a Transalp 700 rider? Thank you.

  • Common sense for the win. Also when tired or having an off day, just cruising and dialing down the ride. Like Neil, my worst days for accidents have been on my off days where I am not feeling great.
    Inner voices must be heeded. ))

  • I love mixing trail and road, road for interval and trail for endurance runs or when I run to relax. Currently mostly road due to a toe injury. I am happy that I moved out of the city a few years ago to live near trails:)

  • Always run trails. No leg stress. Same dirt trail everyday so I have consistency but no pounding. 65 years old. Run everyday with dogs for 45 years. No leg or weight problems whatsoever. On payment my hips kill me after 1 week. Run dirt or grass always. Trails are well kept so her “cons” are inapplicable and the same trail everyday allows me to compare the data

  • MAKING CALLS ON NO SIGNAL? NO. Emergency calls can be made on any mobile phone network, not just your own. If you are somewhere where your network doesn’t have reception but another does, you get Emergency Calls Only. If no networks have any signal, you’ll be told there is no reception and you can’t even make 999 calls.

  • If I have a choice I would like to do more trail running. For a mental thing it’s perfect watch your footing, cadence increases and decreases due to terrain or ground and maybe a long jump or two thrwn in.

  • I’ve got 1,800 miles on my board and just started riding singletrack. The toughest part for me is when i go over a root or rock and my feet come off the board and land in an awkward position. What’s the best way to avoid that?

  • Roads during weekly morning runs for convenience before work, trails on the weekend when time permits. Love both, but favor trails.

  • Go out on a Trail, Get Bit by Paper Wasps on the solar Plexus and lose DAYS of training
    Go out on a road, Get mugged and punched when they realize you aren’t carrying anything
    Put a fan in front of a treadmill and avoid all shit of the outside world all together.

  • Me and my sis: let’s play zombie apocalypse!
    Me: let’s use Troom troom to help us!
    My sis: No we cant use them!
    Me:Why?!
    My sis: that’s why there’s no survivors!
    Me:true dat

  • Thanks for your videos!and what about with passenger?and what if the road has 100 km you have to go stand also? thanks.from Mexico

  • The easiest and safest way to practice this, is on a mountain bike or bycle. Get up on the peddles and lean the bike as far as you can in to the turn. while you lean in the apposite direction. Start on a pavement and work your way up to off-road surfaces.
    Once it becomes a second nature, try it on a motorcycle.

  • Great advice, thanks! I have not ridden gravel, and trail since high school in my dirt bike days. It’s been all street for me since I struck out on my own with an XS Yamaha 500 (1980)! Feeling the call to get back to my roots so I’m looking at some different ADV bikes and these tips are very helpful to start getting my head back in that zone. I enjoy the channel so new sub from northern Minnesota. Peace.

  • Love these vids! And the music, too! Where can I buy it, please? My Amazon Music for Matt Jorgensen gets me much jazz, but I just love these percussions…:)

  • Oh man, your videos are the best! Although damn lose gravel road still freak me out at first, but after a half hour or so I’m relaxed enough to trust the bike and enjoy the bike “floating around”

  • Thank you so much for doing this series of Adventure bike riding tips. I have always ridden Harley Davidsons and just bought the KTM 790 R Rally. I am like a fish out of water when I ride it. It is a completely different ride and feels so tall and awkward. Your videos have helped me a great deal. I am starting to feel a little more comfortable on it and am really enjoying learning to ride Adventure bike. Your videos have been a huge help in my learning curve. Thanks again.

  • I find myself riding solo more than with mates and need to look into some of these ideas for my regime. Thank for this vid, we all like to get back home…. eventually hahaha.

  • Not really specifically mentioned but situational awareness. If your riding alone. Yes enjoy yourself but don’t push it really hard that is called playing it SAFE. Error on the side of caution and you will avoid needing emergency assistance. Common Sense.

  • First off, in my opinion most people buy way too much adventure bike too much engine too much weight. I’ve always opted for the smallest bike to do the job. And I ride much slower off-road than other people. But I don’t fall like other people either LOL very interesting thanks for posting.

  • Brent, thank you for all your advise.. I watched your video and headed straight out to my nearest service road to test my skills using your advise and it really helped.. Unfortunately for me, as I drove to the far end of the service road the road crews had just spread out a new layer of gravel and to my surprise on my way back nearly lost it after being sprayed with rocks from my tires that were almost buried in the thickness of the gravel in places. I was very scared riding in it and thankfully the road crew thinned this out the next day.. Awesome advise, thank you again Brent..

  • Awesome video’s just discovered your channel. I’m quite new to adventure riding and can’t get enough of the video’s. One question that’s keeps lingering though, is what to do with ABS on dirt and gravel roads. I’ve heard conflicting stories on that subject and I’m keen to know your opinion.

  • Sounds obvious but always worth having a bit of emergency food or cash on you too. I went on a little ride last year just to test a new tubeless setup. As it was a nice day it inevitably turned into a bit of a mini epic local 3 peaks challenge instead. Got to the top of the 3rd peak after around 30 miles and some pretty big climbs and my energy levels went off a cliff. Had no food or money on me, nor my phone to call anyone as I only originally went out for a little test ride on a 30 minute loop. I felt terrible, my head was spinning, I felt sick and could barely stand up let alone keep my balance on my bike. Thankfully I bumped into a group of other riders and one of them kindly donated me an energy gel which almost instantly made me feel a fair bit better and enabled me to limp back home. My own fault for going on a big unplanned ride, but if I’d had a bit of food or a few quid stashed away with my tools to hit up one of the ice cream vans en route I likely wouldn’t have even had an issue. So thanks again random man in Randwick woods for the energy gel!

  • Great tips, I want more of these! Just did my first off road session the other day, need a lot more practice before I can go like those guys haha

  • So, if you going round a left hand bend, you move your body out to the right (staying upright), but what about the weight distribution on your feet (through the pegs)even balance, or more weight on one peg over the other?

  • I want to buy an XR and do a 140 mile offroad trip through the desert. I would have a support 4runner following me with a hypercharger and inverter for quick 60 min charges. It would probably take 3-4 days with at least 10 charging stops. Am I crazy? Should I do it?

  • I am not always riding where cell service is available, preventing tracking and emergency contact. I frequently enjoy riding alone. I use a Garmin InReach Mini paired to my phone and Garmin Edge. It will leaves breadcrumbs that others can track as long as you have gps satellite link. Additionally, I can send sms messages or trigger an SOS from the device, my Edge 530, or my phone.

  • I love your videos. I’ll have to watch them a lot of time to really learn what you teach for when I’ll go off-road, but they are very helpful… Guess going off-road for the first time could be chilly:)

  • A great way to learn to relax your ankles is to ride on a grass field. You can’t see the small undulations so you just have to learn to let your ankles take it. Increase your speed as your confidence (and ankles) improve. It is is also softer when you “turf” it!:)

  • Great tips, great insights. Thank you for the information you share with people that are far from you and don’t have the possibility to train

  • When going fast, forget the front foot entirely.! Custom Shaping: All to the left (-5, -1.0, 1! When you enter the trails, switch to (-5, +0.8, 11)

  • Great stuff. I notice you are wearing a neck brace. I had one but found it uncomfortable and didn’t like the limits it placed on head movement (when not crashing ;-)). I now wear an airbag vest (Helite), both on the street and off-road, although I don’t go far off-road on my KTM 1190 Adventure. Which, if either, in your opinion, is a safer choice, the brace or airbag vest? Thanks. Wish I was close enough to take your riding courses.

  • Love the tip on how to figure out your stance… “Imagine your feet if you are going to jump as high as possible”!!! ������

    Are any of the giveaways Pint surestance pads?

    Just got my pint this week and love it!

  • Also, Lean forward always have the front wheel in control and with grip. The moment you loose the front you are done.
    Back wheel doesn’t matter as much.

  • I did not know any of this stuff! I’ve been thinking about getting an ADV bike because it is sooooo uncomfortable when I find myself in the dirt on my stupid, slow Harley. I’m watching this over and over so I can memorize each bit of wisdom here

  • I ride dirt bikes but these tips transfer over exactly the same. I came on here to learn how to keep up with my friends on fire roads hopping from single track trail to the next. I could never keep up with them and after a month of practicing cornering on the dirt, I can walk away from them in the turns. I like to really dip the bike over as far as my arms allow and weight the outside peg and really drive the weight straight down into the tires. It is always fun to rip the throttle at the apex and drift a bit. You just got to really be up on the tank when doing that to keep the weight on the front tire or you can make it light and wash.

  • If I took your advice and kept to the right, I would be dead within a minute. We drive on the left in the UK, Joking btw. Great advice tho!, thanks

  • I have heathland a few hundred meters away so summer I’m almost always out there, having to be super careful this year though as I’m getting so many ticks on me, I got 4 in one run a couple of weeks ago! Winter time when I’m running after work in the dark it’s always on the road and then the odd run on trails at weekends.

  • I run both for the different tri’s i compete in and because I love running trails and where i live I have some great asphault trails that weave in and out of the city.

  • Thank you Bret. I am touring Alaska and had promised to take my 11 year old daughter to Arctic circle and back. Your videos that i watched yesterday helped me do that.. My commuter bike is 650GS, but the rental gave me a 1200GSA.. i watched your video several times and the videos played in my mind every time i tense up.. thank you.. I will be watching all your videos..

  • You can download those maps on komoot to navigate offline and I do this often because I usually ride in a border area with no signal: https://www.komoot.com/features > “no signal, no problem”

  • Succinct video with excellent safety points, cheers. I live in NZ and ride narrow, very tight, (1st gear hairpins..!) twisty, gravel roads, which could be deep gravel, corrugated or scrubbed off just leaving a smooth clay surface. The outside of a bend is always deep gravel and often where you need to be to avoid a sideways ute or camper van coming around the bluff. Sometimes with a boat on a trailer swinging behind. Rule of thumb in addition to what is said in your vid is brake in a straight line, pick the safest / observant line and be in the right gear to ride the loose crap around the corner. A positive throttle keeps your underpants clean. Staying outside the CoG and weighting the outside footrest when standing is paramount to avoid stunting incidents. And yeah, relax. The bike won’t fall over unless you make it do so. Most of our gravel roads are cambered, use the camber to minimise lean increase grip. I love gravel!

  • First video I’ve ever watched from this channel. I appreciate you getting to the point and not stretching it out to a 15-minute video.

  • Riding at Milican we would signal how many bikes were coming behind us when we met other crews. Not everyone does it, but it is a nice thing to help others out.

    I wasn’t riding but driving on a mountain road whilst hunting with a buddy years ago in Arizona. We were not going fast, thank goodness, but a Ranger was speeding to catch a poacher (didn’t have tags) who had fled a different Ranger. It really wasn’t fun, and it was a huge cliff on one side, thank fully she went on the correct side of the road, even on the corner or it would have been game over. We had the hill side, she had the cliff side.

    She came to our camp a day later, and apologized (she recognized the truck), all is forgiven.

  • Привет! Теперь пересматриваю все твои ролики с переводом,с субтитрами:)). Супер! Важная информация хорошо подана и не растянута по времени. Все успел сказать и показать за 5 минут. Молодец! Жму руку,дружище! P.S: Да,кстати,классная у тебя кепка:))

  • I ride alone quite alot but I can’t recommend more is to install @whatthreewords app on your phone and sports watch. It got the medics to me and it’s free.

  • Here in Korea, people riding on the road are less than careful. And are even less careful offroad, where they think there isn’t likely to be any traffic or police enforcement. I find, especially when going around a blind bend, particularly where the road is only one lane wide, I give a little blast of the horn. It has saved my life way more than once. Even if moving at a crawl, I would still get creamed by some SUV driver who thinks he’s the only person in the universe, while he blasts around these tight bends.

  • Hi and Thanks for a lot of great videos. Just getting in to the World of adventure biking with my 850gs, and I enjoy watching your vids.
    How is that shoei helmet doing at highway speeds?

    Regards from Denmark ����

  • That’s a really important video. Everything’s fine as long as nothing happens, but that can change quickly.
    It’s always good to be aware of that and prepare.
    I think you had a video on how to crash a while back and Skills with Phil did one too, I think. Those skills can be really really helpful. Practice falling and getting off your bike when it come to it can make the results a lot less severe.

  • My simple tip is to find old crappy roads to hone your skills on before trail riding. There is a neighborhood close to my own that has bigger trees with roots emerging in the asphalt. Great practice.

  • You guys should organize state specific safety training rides at an affordable rate. Similar to the American Motorcycle Safety Foundation. I learned a lot from them for bikes and you could make a few bucks and save a few bones as well. I would so sign up today if I could. Sorta kinda a safety/Group ride. Look into the foundation and its practices if your not familiar as it is an amazing recourse.

  • For me I take trail running far less serious. I tend to enjoy the run more. I don’t care about pace, sometimes running through the woods completely off any trails and just finding a route through. The road seems to always been where I watch the pace and want to push. Not sure why as most competitive runs I do are trail runs ��

  • Alguien puso subtítulos en español y se le agradece. Pero la traducción es pésima. Please, try to correct the texts. But, again, thanx.

  • Download What3words to your phone. It’s cpletely free and it allows you to be located anywhere in the world quickly and exactly down to 3m² (even with no signal).

  • Over confidence is not my friend, but bailing early— I need to learn but hoping I can figure out how to install an air bag that inflates, rolls and doesn’t fly away in high winds.

  • Was overweight teen/young adult. Dropped 70ish lbs and started to run around 25 years old. Broke my leg right after being able to run a sub 18 5k in a soccer game. Came back and was never the same running on the road. I got in even better shape again and did physical therapy. Leg stopped having any sort of residual pain or indication it had ever been broken unless I ran more than half marathon distances. But never really got runners high or felt really great running again after it. Switched to running trails and realized it was better in almost every way. No pain going on hour long runs, obstacles to jump over, constant slopes and turns to push off against, random moments of intense exertion without thinking about it, nature sounds (running water, birds, trees moving in the wind, etc.) Trail running seems like a great way to switch it up and is probably the only way you’d get me to run an ultra marathon. Marathons on the road were horrible enough as it was.

  • I cannot recommend the App What Three Words. It’s free to download for both Android and Apple and will give you three words that you give to the emergency dispatched in the UK. This will give your location within 3 square metres. As a first responder I cannot count the number of times it has been useful.

  • All these methods rely on a phone signal etc, as far as I can see!
    I always carry a PLB with me whenever I am out anywhere that isn’t in the town, city etc.
    It’s a Personal Locator Beacon and sends out a distress signal over the international distress band (think its 121.6mhz) that gets picked up by satellites around The Earth and aircraft but also on the old distress band, that aircraft monitor as well! It’s similar in operation to the one Richard Hammond used in Top Gear on his watch, in the Canadian Rockies, but only cost me £150! It has a 10 year battery and you just send it off every 10 years to have the battery changed!
    It’ll work anywhere on the planet with a clear(ish) view of the sky ie not caving or scuba diving and the signal will last for over 24 hours!
    I got it for sailing, surfing and snowboarding but take it with me when out in the hills or by the coast etc, especially as sometimes I can’t get any sort of signal, in North Wales etc!

  • I admit to staying in a comfort zone in terms of difficulty of terrain because I’m usually alone. The days of being a hero are long gone for me.

  • I’m glad you emphasized SLOW down! I drive a log truck over these roads (Oregon/Washington). Couldn’t count number of close calls.

  • Congrats to Gearbox Media, Flying.V, and Vjcayla for giving some awesome advice, and winning the Fusion footpad giveaway! Thank you all for submitting your tips:D

  • Thanks for this precious tips, but you didnt mentionned the pain we can have, in the thighs or the foot fatigue you accumulate in long rides you only mentionned the ankles. But stoping or making small pauses are very important in my opinion, cause the first only time I fall badly on a root is when I was to tired so my foot and my body couldnt manage the stability of the board. Jimmy Chang in his falling video also mentionned that he falled when he was exhausted and thirsty.So keep hydrated and make pauses folks!

  • I’m new to riding off pavement and when on gravel the bike is definitely loose in the rear…can be intimidating when not used to that. Thanks for the tips…I’ll try them out. Subscribed!

  • Tq,, chest seal and 4×4 gauze can handle 95% of lacerations you may suffer and they don’t weigh much at all…sof-t-wide for the tq

  • #askgmbn Hi guys, great show as always. I have an old injury from 2018 that still causes a lot of discomfort in the colder months. I dislocated my wrist and broke my radius. Although it has recovered well, it still hurts when pulling for bunny hops etc. Could you reccomend a good wrist guard/brace that will provide support but still allow for adequate freedom of movement. I’m 46 and not as durable as I used to be. Keep up the good work.

  • In September I was at a bike park with my friends, and went over a berm. I landed on my head, broke my neck, and crushed 2 vertebrae. I was wearing a full face so I managed to escape a concussion, but clearly couldn’t really move myself. When my friends came to help me, I had them call the park’s emergency number, not 911. While this is definitely usually fine for any non life threatening injury, the staff at the park were clearly not well trained on how to handle my situation, as they had me stand up and get in a truck to drive to their medical building. Then they told us they weren’t actually doctors, and there were none at the park, and this was a huge park, AND there was a running race at the venue that day with thousands of people attending. I ended up getting driven (they didn’t even recommend an ambulance!) 20 miles to a hospital before finding out what I’d done, and that I was lucky that I hadn’t damaged my spinal cord, possibly paralyzing myself, with all the moving I’d done. I’m relatively ok now, still recovering, but it was definitely a lesson on trusting “professionals” and knowing a little bit of emergency protocol yourself. needless to say I don’t see myself going back there any time soon, and I plan to wear a full face for anything more than a casual ride from now on.

  • Whenever I have a serious crash and hurt myself, I just cancel the injury on my bicycle computer within 30 seconds, and then I’m fine again ;-p

  • I’m a real beginner in dirt road riding! A week old beginner!!! But i live in the country and we are surrounded by dirt roads. So i started riding with my new Kawasaki Versys and just went for it. Came across some big rocks…it was either face that or jump in the stream…i almost fell but i remembered when i took that road to go back home, how i should prepare before riding on that surface. I was so happy when i crossed it and was way more in control the second time around. I stood up and looked as far as i could not concentrating on what bad things could happen if i fell but rather on how happy i was going to be when i crossed it! Thank you for your instructive videos. They came in handy!

  • I do believe that if you call the emergency services on 112 from a mobile in the UK it will give a GPS signal as to your whereabouts, just in case your lost or injured beyond movement.

  • I ride roads only to get to the trails or to get somewhere I need to be. On roads I am constantly defensive, cautious and aware. I don’t enjoy road riding anymore. Not where I live!!
    On trail I am in much more control of my own fate and there’s not litter and evidence of the pigs that are the greater human race!
    In my ‘state’ of Wackofornia they’ll give licenses to operate two ton WEAPONS to anyone! You don’t even need to be able to read street signs!

  • When I was 14 I broke my left keybone and I didn’t know what exactly happened but I felt some bone around my shoulders wasn’t right. I was riding with my best friend and fortunately we were only about 2-3 kilometers from my home so I rode back home without much problem but now thinking back it was quite risky.
    The funiest part is for some reason around that age many boys had this habit to try to hide any injuries from our parents. My friend insisted on not telling this to my parents even though my left shoulder was like an inch lower than the other but whatever:D

  • Most important aspect for me is ride within your limits, know what you can and can’t do, if your skills aren’t set for black runs don’t do them, I reckon that’s how most accidents happen….unless your ride partner is a clumsy sod who takes you out, as happened to me, which resulted in a serious shoulder injury that still hurts 2 years later!

  • Good tips cheers, I came off 2 weeks ago OTB on a double I’d done a 100 times now I’m recovering with titanium Plates and pins. Looking forward to getting back on my bike will be having lesson’s on how to jump ��

  • Wear a full face helmet. Always. I don’t care if its not cool (or whatever). Unless you’re paying my denstist and hospital bills you can piss off.

  • Haven’t tested trail yet. I have an open water swim race soon that trail testing in mountain territory can be tested. With all the on and offroad running your doing. You must spend time in the gym on leg day right?

  • Relax and ride easy warming up. Loosen your ankles and bend your knees some. Practice riding different terrains:)
    I live in a city and finding off road trails is so hard. I scan the maps on satellite view looking for new areas to try, then bring my Pint there by bike. Couldn’t do that w/o a OW backpack, so would recommend one of those as well.

  • Stretch and warm up. Taking a bit of time to get in MTB mode after sitting behind a desk for 8+ hours helps reorient the brain and body to something physical (and a lot more fun)!

  • When riding offroad I’ve found the following helpful (especially while learning):
    -Think of picking your line as a problem solving game, the path of least resistance may not be the most fun but its probably your safest bet.
    -Deep carves & mud (or real loose ground) don’t mix, Float light when you find yourself on sketchy surfaces
    -Bring a plastic bag & pick up a few peices of trash along the way, that way when you get the inevitable dirty look from a biker or trail walker who may be questioning the legality of your ‘motorized vehicle’ on said trail at least you know in you heart you’ve left that place better than you found it.

    … currently riding stock footpads offroad but I fingers crossed that will change thanks to this post����

    Thanks for being awesome team Future Motion!

  • Great video! Love that ya’ll covered keeping your winch and safety attached while backing down and crossing the trailer chains. Two of the biggest things I see that get me nervous for other people taking some avoidable risk. Quick question, what is the best way to check the trailer brakes? Is it just a simple matter of inspection and watching them grab while someone taps the brakes on the tow vehicle?

  • I try to do both speed sessions and endurance on the road or treadmill, and threshold or recovery runs off-road to help build ankle strength and stability.

    In other news, whilst I don’t think anything will replace Heather as my favourite thing to watch on YouTube, Mark’s beard is a very strong second! Good work that man!

  • Love running off road. As Mark says you can listen to the music and take in the fresh air. Where we are it is great to run through the olive groves and on the edge of the sea. Quite roads also make for easy on road running as well.

  • I find myself off roading more often than I normal would. I noticed I was doing some of these things without even noticing. Without a doubt, I think I need more practice. Thanks for the tips dude. Can you guys make a video to help me with getting understanding the custom digital shaping settings a bit more?

  • If you need the emergency services. I you use what3words app. You get a 3mx3m address which is 3 random word attached that square. In the UK the emergency services actually uses it.

  • Great video as always! Would love to get my hands on a Surestance Pro. Getting some foot fatigue and the added concave would really help with carving too. Thanks for the content

  • When you’re ridding on more rugged gravel roads with bigger rocks sometimes you gotta kick a leg out there like you are riding a dirt bike. Also don’t be afraid of puddles for the most part if you’re gonna dump the bike its probably gonna be a low speed low side on the onside of a turn.:)

  • I understand the mechanics of leaning in when cornering on pavement, but why does that change on a loose surface? I can do it better if I understand it.

  • I have so much troubles with Garmin Edge ride uploads not working, incorrect battery readings, weird routes it suggests, etc. I will never rely on it to send an emergency signal. In case of a really threatening situation it may let me down. Garmin is just not that company you can trust your life to.

  • Only been mounting biking a couple of months but now damaged ligaments in my shoulder after a nasty tumble while jumping. Definitely not my strong point but went a bit beyond my limit.Excelent video though guys.��

  • if they are monster in he morning they will burn ahhahahhhahhhah its morning how are they alive they are thier friends they re just jockeinf hahahha they ant doing anyting zombie noob hahahhahhhahaha

  • Love that you pointed out not to “muscle” the board into going where you want. Riding a onewheel is all about respecting the board and its physics. Once you understand how it reacts to different things, and how you can react to its reactions, riding it will be more beautiful than you could have ever imagined

  • I am currently focusing on road marathons, so I ue the roads for my long runs for more consistent tracking, roads for speed work where i am focused on specific pacing, but then i love trail running for those easy run days where the softer surface helps my recovery.. but you need to be careful on trail running as you can easily start working harder on the trails than you intended to (especially with muddy inclines)

  • I share my location via Google Maps with my wife. For really wild, backcountry Wyoming rides, I bring along a phone charger. Problem is I am often beyond mobile phone service.

  • Great video! Consistent trail running has made my tendons stronger and more flexible, which helps me to reduce/prevent injuries on longer road runs.

  • Please don’t waste time on this shit crap instead go watch a movie that will be much better Because this is just some kind of bullshit where a person thinks he will get everything and at the most impeccable time and this is totally unreal.
    And i don’t know but i for sure wouldn’t carry a workshop in my bag for crafting all the things.
    Supermarkets stores will get you what you need.

  • Guys be safe whilevriding your bike. Try things you think you can do, do things you can but don’t push yourself to the limit.
    #Staysafe

  • 1:16 What if I am riding a V-twin? I hope my suspension takes care of the off road issues for me because it is hard standing on my pegs.

  • I think the de-weight advice is key. Took me a while to get the timing straight. Also, I use a neoprene knee brace on my back knee (old guy….yeah) but it helps during trail riding to keep steady, and minimizes how sore I am after.

  • Garmin InReach if your by yourself in remote areas. Uses GPS and not cellphone signal to alert emergency services and you can text back and forth with them via the device. You can use this to text your family or send them preset non-emergency messages when you arrive at your campsite, etc. what three words mentioned below is great for pin-pointing locations as well. Good video��

  • Just did some onewheel trail riding today, and I think that an important tip is to first get comfortable with the board on pavement, then hit the trails, sand & grass which are all completely different beasts in their own right. Second, momentum is key, the slower you go, the harder it is to maintain balance; one wheels in motion, stay in motion. Ps, I’ve been looking into a grippy footpad, good to know that you guys at future motion recommend the ‘SURESTANCE’. Float on my friends… peace ✌��

  • How about starting a Gmbn skills trading course I reckon you would be swamped with folks wanting to go on it. Where do I sign up lol

  • Just a quick question. When you towing a bassboat on highway, is it necessary to take the seat off the deck??? It is possible that I can just leave it on?

  • Why wouldn’t you lean to the inside of the corner, to minimize lean angle thereby maximizing grip on the grippiest part of the tire (the center)?

  • I ride with lower tire pressure, custom setting on the loose side so I can respond quickly to trail conditions, and I always spend some time riding fakie. Back foot forward never feels as comfortable and it forces me to be more conscious of my body position. Next time I am going to focus on making sure my arms are raised. Thanks for the tips!

  • Just got my first OneWheel yesterday, the Pint! I’m 48 years old but, no exaggeration, I’ve been like a kid on Christmas Day since it got here. I’ve already got 10 miles on it.

    I’ve taken a few short trips of about 3 miles each. I’m also practicing tight circles and figure 8s just like this video says to do. I have also found it helpful to practice going up and down driveway bumps to get the feel for what it’s like to take a very big bump. Since I plan to begin using my Pint to get to and from work (about 4.5 miles) when the quarantine is over, I’ve also been practicing riding with my full backpack (MacBook, iPad, camera gear, etc.). It’s a very different feel with that weight on my back, especially getting going. Once I’m up and cruising, it’s not much different.

    Thanks for the tips and for making such an awesome product!

  • Recognize which obstacles are going to drastically angle the board ie angled roots, some rocks. Learn how different riding mediums affect the board, transitioning from dirt to gravel going around a turn can be a hard lesson. Anticipate when you’re going to get some air so you aren’t freaked by the landing. If you did get air and your feet become out of position just stop and recenter.

  • My English is good enough to understand most of what you say at first listen, but bear in mind there are audiences from many countries here. You are so casual that sometimes you almost mumble. Its cool, I like you accent, but please make an effort for us and speak a bit less fast and a bit more clear. Loved the video. Thank you, Keep the good work up.

  • 2:20 omg im so happy. I’ve felt so dumb throwing my hands up when i hit something rough im not expecting and was actually gonna try to curb that habit but that makes me feel so good to know that really good riders still do that too

  • Your videos are very helpfull for a new adventure rider like me, so much knowledge wow, thanks for sharing it. The videos are also very nicely put together. I have a Honda CRF 1000 the bike is big, so far no luck to achive the uturn on a gravel even after watching your video lol

  • Thank you!! Those are great tips! I am just a few days away from getting mine in the mail and the wait is killing me! Can’t wait to start riding!

  • if anyone has an XR that they are trying to sell plz get back to me i have a pint but it’s not cutting it i need to go off-road and faster with more battery

  • i just subscribed. my son started hitting the trails within a week or so after i bought him a Onewheel. he was quick at picking up ice skating when he was young but has not done any other board sports than the Onewheel and just loves it. he agrees, trails are the most fun but he has been into “long distance” riding as well, for the adventure. he’ll definitely bring his Onewheel to college in a couple years when he goes.

  • Pump It. Up all time classic track for training. On road during the week, off-road at weekends for me. If you have one close by, cycle-trails can offer the best of both worlds just don’t use headphones, so you can hear bikes approaching

  • i just ordered a pint! i’ve never even touched a onewheel yet but i will soon!! i’ve been watching videos for days in anticipation!

  • Wait, if you try to make that zombie alert wouldn’t it make more zombies come in because if a zombie got in ur house and it made the noise other zombies can get in��

  • Live search for Garmin works good for everyday rides, but if it is more serious stuff Garmin In Reach device is outstanding No cel phone signal required, really works I’d loved it.!!

  • I feel so much more comfortable on pavement. I want to become more comfortable with trails and riding on grass. I will practice going in circles.

  • Transom straps can come off before going down the ramp on most smaller boats.  Winch strap will keep them on the trailer as you back down.

    OPEN A WINDOW on the tow vehicle before starting down the ramp.  Its your escape if the truck slides on down into the water.

    PFD should be on if the hull is about to get wet.
    Too many people fall off of boats in 10-12 ft of water and are never seen alive again.

  • I see more and more riders cornering on tight, blind turns in the opposite side. It is bloody scary and it just amazes me that they do this. Its by far the stupidest thing to do and lots do it.

  • How does this thing do going UP the trail? I’d love to ride mountain bike trails with my dad, both ways. He rides fairly intense stuff. Think blue/black diamond at a ski resort. I was able to follow him today on my Evolve GTR, but I’m dying to know what it would feel like on a OneWheel.

  • I’m looking at Torso armor now after my ribs decided to dislocate on my last OTB. At 61 maybe my fantasy of being the next MTB Superstar isn’t such a good idea after all.

  • Thank You Neil… Great videos… great advices… It’s just a bit difficult to understand your dialect for those English is foreign language.. anyway if I listen many times I understand:) thank you

  • I was riding with a group that was faster than me. I missed a trail feature, and went OTB. I dislocated my thumb. Luckily, I was a five minutes from my truck.

  • I need to focus on staying right, I tend to think I am the only person on the road. Great video and tips, I just subscribed so I can learn more

  • Great video ������. Off road for me personally because I hate to deal with traffic. I’m very lucky as I have Hornchurch country park right on my doorstep, which has gravel tracks, grassy farmer fields, uneven muddy woodland areas and it also has tarmac Paths in certain places. The other benefit of off-road running is if you get caught short you can nip behind a bush ��

  • Also, you can buy cheap RFID Tags on Amazon and write your Medical Data to them using a free App. Then put it on your Helmet. It costs under 1 € and is another Method to get your Data in an emergency. You’r Phone might be broken depending on how bad things went.

  • Thank you for such a nice video.
    Just a question, whether same guide lines be applicable while riding Sports bike like Honda cbr650f?

  • I’m still fairly new to riding my onewheel pint. At the moment I’m at 300 km and I’ve been riding for 5 Month (Lockdown Included:/ )
    While offroading my biggest problem is slipping slightly off my board, so I’ll ordered some new griptape, I’ll see how it works out.

  • Hey GMBN Neil! When your Garmin senses you have crashed and you don’t cancel does Blake drop everything and rush off to rescue you??? I’d like to see that in a vid! Ride ride ride!

  • This video was some next level editing, filming and presenting stuff. A dream to watch and with great informations.
    At the moment iam only running on a cinder track but I definitely gonna switch some sessions to off-road, because I do suffer from a little bit of shin splints.
    Thank you guys and keep up this great work!

  • Just took my Pint onto single track for the first time and it was a total blast! The board is small enough so rather than muscling over obstacles I could simply ride around them and it had just enough torque to get up those steep hills. thoroughly impressed 10/10! Can’t wait to see what you guys come out with next!

  • Thanks for the video and info. Love the channel. I am brand new to motorcycling just got my beginners. Quick question, by leaning out are you also counter balancing the bike, can you explain a bit more why you lean out off road? I guess two questions. Thx.

  • Don’t lean forward by any means. Keep your body above the wheel. Practice is the right word! And don’t get overconfident, so start slow and improve slowly!

  • Every tip you gave I had to work trough intuitively except the counter-steering. I found myself doing that naturally on back roads but I thought it was a bad habit.

  • Thumbs up on the vid which is full of great tips. I’ve been looking to get into trail riding with my boys. Would liked to have seen some discussion about picking good trails or even trail design / creation. Also tire choice for I don’t want to assume stock tire was used. Here in the CT/NY area, MTN bike single track trails can be pretty unforgiving with out the same amount of trail flow as in the vid.

  • I most definitely prefer off-road. I just love nature (although I don’t fancy meeting a wolf or a boar). And while it’s true that a softer surface will soften the landing, it’s also less stable so it stresses the legs in a different way and it can lead to injury just as well if you’re not used to it. The nice thing is that you tend to get a good variety. Each step is different.

    When it comes to exploration, I tend to prefer a bike as you can cover much more distance. Fortunately, we have awesome maps and not much mud after the water from thawing is gone (if a path isn’t traveled frequently, water will absorb quickly in the forests). I also train on pavement. Especially downhill. To maintain adaptation to impacts (it takes “ages” for bones and joints to adapt compared to muscles, so you don’t want to lose those hard won gains). And there are some asphalt forest roads. Some have concrete panels. Some are even cobbled.:-) Some are compacted gravel (sometimes fine, sometimes very rough fist sized; once compacted, even the rough stuff is pretty smooth).

    The golden rule always was to train on the surface you race on. Not necessarily all of the time, but definitely a significant portion.

  • I actually learned how to ride on grass, so I’m much more used to uneven terrain I find asphalt too smooth at times and prefer the unpredictability of trails but as one person said earlier, if you have a slick tire, it doesn’t play well with wet grass or snow definitely learned that the hard way on multiple occasions!

  • Great video and tips! Have only been riding for a week and can’t wait to try hitting some trails after more practice practice practice!

  • You explained the popping your heels off very well. It is like skateboarding an snowboarding when you’re riding through dips in the terrain you almost want to make your body “float” through them in order to put less pressure on the board. Science!

  • One of these days I will have to nut up and show you west coast guys what it’s like to ride trails out here in the north east. My god your trails out there are smoother than a smoothie! You can’t go more then ten feet out here without hitting four roots, two large rocks, a rodent hole, or rail road tie.

  • Always keep in mind that the x-axis (forward / backward axis) is compensated by the wheel but the z-axis (rotation over the wheel) isn’t! Keep an eye upfront for uneven terrain which will rotate your wheel on this axis and bend your knees and counter your body weight in advance to the opposite direction.

  • I run both onand off-road, but occasionally slipping off-road (on the right surface, of course) produces a good 2-minutes worth of bloopers material. ������

  • I’ve already face planted and broke my wrist and I’m back on riding again especially with more safety gear as you had mentioned. Definitely getting better and enjoying to ride again instead of being terrified. Thanks for the helpful tips!

  • My BEST off-road riding tip is to just go for it!

    This isn’t to say “be reckless,” but there are a lot of people who are so nervous about it that they never do it.

    To those people, I say two things:

    1. I get it; it’s nerve-racking at first (and may always be a little)…

    2. You’re missing out on one of the most amazing riding experiences if you never give it a shot.

  • I’ve found that momentum is usually a good friend on the trail. The board will have a hard time powering through rough terrain, sticks, roots, and stuff like that without the help of some momentum. Not necessarily going fast but just coming into things rolling. Don’t take it any faster than you’re comfortable with. Start with terrain you can handle and work up from there.

  • Great advice. Especially with the the huge increase with SxS ‘s on the road. They seem to be what I come across more than ever here in Arizona

  • The only time I’ve been seriously injured was riding home on the road, and was hit from behind by a car driver. The trails are safe by comparison.

  • Or cool, maybe an airbag that carries me to the wind then I can ripcord a parachute, truly a challenge and fun reason to learn to bail early so you don’t have to re-roll the parachute and put away.

  • Just got mine In the mail this week and this video was really helpful. I took it on the single track day two and it’s a blast. Definitely have been feeling more confident each day on it, I can definitely see blowing through board parts in the first few months though especially when finding limits and re defining only ones. All around a fantastic product glad I got it, I would be stoked for some replacement parts because I’m going to tear this board apart with fun!!!

  • Yeah the tutorial is really helpful, Mind boosting, in fact. I liked the de weight the board and the loose ankles—helps with the adaptability.

  • night riding for the win during quarantine. #flowstate. i have never tried a surestance footpad, but hear they are night and day over the stock…would love to be considered for this giveaway.

  • Speed is your friend! Riding fast helps smooth out some of the bumps that might normally make you really off balance. Staying loose is a necessity when going fast on trails! Practice practice practice. But ride confidently in fast and it will be smoother!

  • See your in Surrey Hills,Broke my back there lucky i was with a group,Smashed my knee there had to be carried out i did have a space blanket to keep me warm and a whistle while my mate went off for help,the whistle did attract a walker and they stayed with me until the paramedics arrived.

  • 2:20 I broke my left wrist and right elbow in a crash and rode the eight miles to home before my wife drove me to A&E. Obviously I’ll never know if I made my situation worse by doing so but I would absolutely not recommend doing what I did. And I didn’t even get a medal

  • I’m 60 and just got an XR 50 miles in & got a black and blue thigh from the splits (you probably all know how that happened). That was the first day, now surfing up and down driveways, sidewalks, and streets. Can’t wait to work on loose ankles I expect to be pushed around less on streets cracks patches and holes. Thanks for the tips trails are the ultimate goal.

  • Excellent advice and would love to learn more about PSI recommendations for larger riders.. like me! also for people with large feet.. size 13..

  • Dialing 999 in the UK will work if there is a signal on any network but no signal= no call. Remote places in the mountains often have no signal. GMBN need to get this right before putting together an advice film. Over reliance on technology is a common mistake amongst people new to the mountains.

  • I’m lucky enough to live in Switzerland close to mountains so i get to train on both. Personally i run off road without music so i don’t zone out and trip on something. If it’s a long road run due, then i’ll take headphones to take the monotony out.

  • 5:41 Forest Bike!
    Doing both types of running. Trails are preferable and more enjoyable to me, though the road running is right outside at any time.

  • I don’t get why some people think running is limited by mental toughness. If that was the case it would be possible to sprint a marathon and get 1:30 full marathon and little physical training would be required.

    Maybe cuz I’m a new runner and I’m not running extensive distances but direct mental toughness during my long runs have never been an issue.

  • Just curious on where you’re from some of the landscape looks a lot like the PNW of the United States. Washington state to be more precise

  • You will never have time to make any of these as a zombie apocalypse is happening and you could easily use that sharp stick or the knife you’re making it with two killed

  • Great tips! Also, as I watched 05:38, a bit of apprehension started to creep in as Heather and that car seemed to head towards the same point in sync. ��

  • I wish I had watched this last year before I had my crash. Separated from my friends kids who are so much better than me I was trying to keep up with them something a seventy-year-old shouldn’t do with 20-somethings, when I lost control going downhill went end-over-end and ended up with back surgery, knee surgery and they tell me that my neck will probably be next. Did I learn, I guess not I was out on the same trail alone today.

  • Wish I could find some trails. There is none near where I live and I’d need to drive just to get to a trail. That’s sad…

    Love the video though.:)

  • Ooo ok ���� was my day to start my new day off today so I have some free time to join ya for sure and I will see you next week

    Ooo ok haha is that the best app I’ve played in my long time haha �� is a great day to start my hw day and week

  • if you dont wont to die with a zombie
    1. get a mask
    2.get any wepone
    3.find a zombie and kill it
    4.hide in a closet
    5.lock all the doors in the house
    6.lock all the windoes

    and thats all be safe!

  • Excellent videos, I have a few questions. Do these tips apply if I’m riding a CRF250L with Dunlop D606s, a pretty knobby tire, assuming the same type of road surface shown here?
    I’ve also heard many times to “look thru the corner.” What exactly does this mean? Look ahead as far as I can while in the corner?
    Thank you for time.

  • My wife and I practiced riding in the back part of our yard which is full of mole hills to somewhat prepare us for trail riding and that’s how we learned to keep the ankles loose. After a couple of attempts it helped us!

  • Hey guys, I tried to share you my last video dedicated to Paris on Onewheel, but I think you did not get my message… So I try here 😉
    Hope you’ll enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgafnMKTuGU

  • You can’t beat off road, nearly everything about it is better. But I mix it up because I don’t have a trail on my doorstep and because most of my races are on road..

  • trails are my preference for longer runs as I am forced to slow down and enjoy it. I am luck to have a park 1k from my work with some nice trails.

  • I’d love to give off-road running a go in my training I might give it a go in my next training season!! Fresh air is always amazing too..
