In another series of MTBA’s “How To” videos, personal trainer Natalie goes through a number of stretches you can do before and after your ride.
You haven’t really ridden Lysterfield MTB Park unless you’ve ridden Aneurysm – it’s a rite of passage. It’s probably the most accessible downhill of the more challenging trio of trails that also include Follow me and Commonwealth Games Track.
It’s a great trail for those new to mountain biking and want up-skill their technique. If you’re capable of riding the first drop you’re probably capable of riding many of the other features along this trail. Even for the trickier, bigger features you have the option of riding the b-line. Be cautious of the table top and gap jumps near the finish though as I’ve seen a few riders get unstuck there (including myself in the early days). Get to the end unscathed and simply cycle back to the top to have another go.
You also have the ability to session some of the trickier features with entry points from the fire trail.
