“Control Begets Confidence”

Founded in 2012, LeanIn Cornering© Concepts training goals are simple;
to make cycling more enjoyable, efficient and safer for those riding on two wheels.

Our 1-1 / 1-2 rider training includes utilizing basic bike cornering drills, the discussion of visual perception, situational awareness, the fundamentals of cornering and the practical application of learned skills.

What we teach and what you read here is based mainly on factual information on developing an understanding of physics through instruction and real world experience on the road. (or track) We offer very little in the way of opinion…
