    I'm not sure if you're talking about hopping on the back wheel or lurching/pedal-kicking, but I can't give you any tips on either one. There are good descriptions and videos on http://www.trials-online.com/ if you haven't been there already.

    I'm sure you realize this, but your best bet is to hook up with a more advanced rider (or riders). With the popularity of trials in England you shouldn't have too much trouble finding people if you need to - check out the many UK based trials sites.
