You Ask/You Answer: Problems with Cornering

Published: 26 February 2013

Updated: 20 November 2014

"I'm a new rider and have a problem with cornering. I seem to stiffen up when cornering and do not have the confidence to lean - I keep thinking the bike will slip over or I'll completely lose the rear. This wasn't helped by an actual slide (but luckily I didn't come off!) when it was icy.

This means that I slow down ridiculously for tight corners. I can't seem to bring myself to loosen up/relax when cornering or lean with the bike for the constant fear of falling off. Any help would be massively appreciated."
