How to Ride Over a Log

Look for the smallest part of the log to cross.

It’s common to come across fallen trees and other obstacles while mountain biking. Instead of riding around a log the next time you’re out on the trail, try to ride over it! First, look for the smallest part of the log to cross. Many times you’ll come across a log that has a cutout, as shown here. If this is the case, aim your front tire directly at the opening.
