ROOTS, ROCKS AND OTHER OBSTACLES ON A MODERATE CLIMB

Slippery roots and rocks on a moderate climb will cause many riders to lose traction (i.e. spin out) or otherwise lose control. Most of the time, the rear tire spins out because heavy pressure is placed on the pedals just at the moment when the rear tire is on the root or rock. To avoid spinning out, try a little body language. When the rear tire contacts the rock or root, throw the bike forward with your upper body instead of pushing hard on the pedals. This thrust will get you over the obstacle without spinning out. This type of upper body control of the bicycle is more difficult and more energy consuming on steep climbs, so it is best utilized on moderate climbs.
