The Cornering Edit – Part 4

Exiting and Linking bends

In this 4 part blog, I explain all aspects of cornering, for all levels of riding. This final section is Exiting and Linking Bends. There are three previous blogs, which are Vision & Planning, Speed & Braking and Counter Steering. I recommend you read those first to make more sense of this. 


Up until this point, as you approach the bend, you should have: 

  • Gathered all the information available to you
  • Decided the severity of the bend
  • Slowed down to an appropriate speed before the bend
  • Changed to an appropriate gear before the bend
  • Initiated Counter steering to start cornering
