Hi again! It’s me…Frog!

Dino and Lion are still recovering after their 12,000 mile cycle ride across Africa! So they sent me to look at some stunt cycling!

I went to the Michaelmas Street Fair festival in a town called Bishop’s Castle! They had a team of guys doing tricks on Mountain bikes! These are light bikes but made for spins and jumps…not for going fast like the bikes we saw on last weeks blog.

There was a large crowd all waiting excitedly to see the jumps and turns!

They all wore lots of safety equipment, like helmets, knee pads and elbow pads. They also checked their bikes before they started!

They balanced on their back wheels!

They jumped and twisted on their back wheel without putting their front tyre down! Amazing!

They did tricks over different surfaces!

Look how hard they are concentrating! These were difficult tricks that wowed the audience!

They even bounced their bike onto the top of a parked van! It was very high!

And finished with some really high jumps! Both feet off the pedals! Dino and Lion would have been very scared!

I really enjoyed watching the tricks!
