I see the occasional trail rider whizzing along with no hands on the handlebars. Just the other day a guy who looked to be in his mid-60s and in great shape, blew past me with his arms on his lap.
And then there is Solveg's new avatar, which should have a disclaimer on it of "Do not try this at home"
I'm a real chicken when it comes to this. I did it in my teens, but haven't tried it for years. I have the image in my mind of me taking my hands off for like two seconds and my bike careening off into the ditch. So I haven't tried it for even a tenth of a second this year. Of course most of my riding is on graveled trails, and riding "no hands" strikes me as foolish when one is on gravel.
Do you ride with "No Hands" on your handlebars? If so, how long can you do so? 10 seconds? 60 seconds? For pretty much as long as you want to?
