Well somehow the word handlebar rides has been added to this trick name...  I've always thought bar rides were when you stood upright on the bars... 

Anyway...

This is one of those tricks that looks pretty cool to do and isn't that hard but teaches some lessons about riding that are CRITICAL.  One- you learn to clear the handlebars while jumping which will make tricks where you jump over and around the bike easier.  Two- it teaches you about balancing on the front of the bike WITHOUT standing on a peg.

There aren't many tricks you can really link into or out of barhops...  But you can still work on variations of the trick.

ALTERNATE WAY INTO HANDLEBAR RIDES...

That should pretty much give you a good thing to try for the next two or three months.   It is typically the first time that you will ever learn to steer the bike in such a weird fashion so don't get overly frustrated if it takes a while to learn.  Getting OVER the bars is easy-  But actually rolling while sitting on the bars can be very difficult for some.

If you have a question about this trick please feel free to e-mail it in...
