Hey , new here
Got back into riding again after a 6 year absence and an extra 20kg of good living. See alot has changed since I was riding back in 2000. Alot of once new gear, remember we used to hollow out BMX stems to make our imported oversize handlebars fit on bikes. Any case, enough of that.
Been on the bike now for a week, and struggling to get decent height out of bunny hops and forearms really get numb after a session, maybe its just the age. Any one started riding after a long break, what helps? At the moment I just do alot of bunnyhops etc to get rythm and arms stronger. (I mostly ride trails and urban mix with some trials)
Usually took me a week after injury or new bike to get up to scratch again, feels like forever now.
