Why would anyone want to do an Elbow Glide? Is there anything that you can do from one of these things? How about Hitchhikers! Elbow Glides are one of the easier rolling tricks- and while they may not offer a huge amount of linkability they do give you a comfortable way to get used to rolling on the front wheel with the frame of your bike on the same side of the handlebars as you are on... Maybe this trick should be listed as a prerequisite to the Hang-5? It is what appears in the hitchhiker how-to as the way to ride in though.

What is described here is how to do a switch-sided elbow glide.

This trick is more complicated to explain than it is difficult. If you are touching your foot down every time you try to ride in then you are not pushing the bars forward enough and keeping your weight centered over the bike. Lean forwards more! If you can't coast an elbow glide more than a couple of feet, practice just doing the elbow glide without riding in. As with Dump Trucks and Funky Chickens it is possible to practice the middle of the trick without doing the ride in or the ride out.

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