Learning to ride a dirt bike can be intimidating, especially if you are starting at an older age. While you could read articles and watch videos to learn new tips, physical experiences are the best way to go. Practice makes perfect, so putting in time is the best way to learn and improve. 

Even if you've been riding for years, there is always more to learn. Keeping an open mind and being willing to learn new techniques will help you continue to improve your racing skills. There are a few riding schools near where we are located in Pittsburgh, PA that can help out.
