How to bunny hop on a bike
Sometimes called the “American bunny hop”, it involves getting the front wheel up first, then springing up and “scooping” the rear wheel behind you, similar to an ollie on a skateboard. It’ll take plenty of practice, but is definitely worth it for mountain bikers and roadies alike.
There’s also something called an “English bunny hop”, which relies on clipless SPD pedals, and sees both front and rear wheels spring up simultaneously. While it’s also a useful technique for jumping small obstacles on the trail, we’re going to focus here on learning to bunny hop with flat pedals. While it takes a little extra practice, it’s much more effective.
