While I had two practice specific sessions on bike this week, I find almost every time I get on my bike is an opportunity for practise. Sometimes it’s just conscious focus on a particular element of form while riding a trail segment, sometimes it’s stopping to session a tricky bit a dozen times. This week though, one session was spending an hour in the parking lot practicing wheelies, manuals, cornering and hopping. Another required a two hour drive to an indoor bike park to session jump lines.
I agree with Michael H - I use every ride to practice - whether it is climbing a difficult/technical switchback, going over obstacles or down steep/loose section, etc - I just ride, but try and learn something from every ride, the whole time, improving all the time.
