Ride 4 pegs to learn as it greatly reduces risk when you slip (because you will)


I see you do ride 4 pegs... I would just work up to higher and higher rails. Build confidence on small rails at skateparks

ProTip: Put magnets in your tires.

Practice on shorter stuff stuff first. Go like Mach 10 speed and ride on a curb/ something low and skinny. If your ride a park railide the coping. Get used to hopping in stuff both from straight on and from the side and get used to landing on the rail or whatever. Obviously gonna be harder and scarier the higher you go. I feel like half the battle is landing on something narrow then the other half is balancing after whether it’s two tires or one. Get good at both and just practice the shit out of it

I feel like the rail ride can be (not always, but sometimes) the coolest and most underrated trick in Bmx. I used to know a guy who would manual something like a railroad track or girder layed on its side, maybe only a few inches off the ground but also maybe half an inch thick or less. Then something like Tate roskelley manualimg a chain. Or someone like Kareem does a huge rail ride with a 12 foot drop after and it’s sick

Don't do em. Easy. I can't do em, do I care? Nope, I'll do something fun instead. Awesome username though. Unless you dress up as your mum and kill people.

Ask the rails politely first, too many riders simply begin trying them without common courtesy. Rails are actually pretty nice once you get to know them.
