Hey everyone, if you read my previous post you will know I'm new to mountain biking. I just have a couple questions, I'm not sure how to jump could someone tell me? And, is jumping really important or can I get by without it? On the couple of rides I've been on I haven't needed to jump at all. My last question is, can I get over things like logs without jumping?(kind of and extension to my second question)

Do you need to know how to jump / bunny hop? No, however it sure will help you in technical situations. Bike handling skills only come with practice, get out there and ride.
i have been riding for a little while now and you will pick up the tricks as you go. I didn't have a teacher and i can hop a little i am sure with time my vertical will improve. Just get out htere and practice.
