  • Being comfortable is key

    The arc to the right hand bend when riding on the left hand side of the road is greater than a left hand bend. Because of this, the speed going around the right hand corner could be quicker than the left corner. If you are not comfortable riding close to the left hand side of the road when cornering. For the fear of running off the road, slow the speed down until you are happy with the new riding position. Becoming familiar with the new road position takes time and practice, but once you are happy the speed will come back (with a little more, without trying to go faster).

    Being comfortable is key
