Chinese Hobby Trick Bike Cyclists

It is fun to meet up with Yu Changqing for our tricks together on one bike. Every time we meet there is someone new coming out of the woodwork. Somebody that played a role in the community of hobby trick cyclists in and around Beijing. Today we had a guy from Changping that had heard about us training and came to watch. He does juggling on his old flying pigeon for fun. He first showed us the one sided diabolo.

Then he showed us the diabolo with a sling around the body.

He can also play with the flower stick type of a devil stick. So he showed us that in the same position on his bike.

And even with this cyclist from outside of Beijing city of course coach Liang has some suggestions for him. He suggests that it would be better to balance on the front wheel when doing the devil stick. And he shows what he means.

And of course also 80 year old coach Wen has some comments to make on how to best keep balance on the bike and have the hands free to do other things.

Yu Changqing is very happy to be back on his bike doing tricks. It is great to watch him get more confident every time we meet up.

Our „paerduo“ headstand trick is getting better.

It is great to have the 2 coaches around that both used to do bike tricks themselves. Coach Wen does not say much but says it in a very precise manner. I really like him as our coach.

Of course also coach Liang had some comments to make on my arms.

So we tried the trick a few more times on this beautiful sunny day on the backside of Deshengmen and they were happy with the progress I was making.
