Quick turn around
Press [Space] to turn around.
- Lean backwards while riding to gain extra speed.
- When going up a quarter pipe with the intention of turning around and using it to gather speed, keep your back wheel down slightly longer and use it to keep your front wheel against the wall. When you turn around, your back wheel will be against the wall and you can make a smooth and speed-increasing transition.
Riding on the walls and ceiling
Ride a wheelie almost vertical and hit the wall. You will stay in the wheelie on the wall and ceiling while still accelerating.
- When sliding upside down, if you have some speed, tap the brakes to flip yourself upwards. Note: You need to be facing the way you are sliding or this may not work.
- When you flip over onto your back, try to find a slope or jump to go off.
- When you land on your back, accelerate then hit the brake while leaning forward. With practice, you can get back up again most of the time.
- If you lean too far and start to go over backwards, hit the brakes. This immediately corrects your angle at the cost of some speed. You can use this technique to do extreme wheelies. Note: Your front brakes also work and are very helpful in some situations.
- When you jump and are about to hit the ledge above you, flip so your wheels hit the ledge instead of your head. By doing this you will keep your health.
Play BMX backflips to gain riding experience.
If you see the red star next to you, but think your score is low, try doing backflips to gain points then collect the star.
Slippery Slopes II: Frontflip
Use the drop time at the start to do a frontflip. Note: This only works with frontflips, not backflips.
- When trying to get to high places, hit the jump as hard as you can. Once in mid-air, be completely vertical. When you get close to the landing, lean forward and it will push you further to your landing.
- When you rotate, you will do so primarily around the back wheel. When you are going for a big jump and are spinning, use [Space] to change which wheel is your back one, then use that to propel you farther.
- When you go off a quarter pipe and are going straight up, but need to get over a ledge at the top, make sure your back wheel is facing down.
- If you are trying to get up on a high ledge but only manage to clear your front wheel, you can still make it. With your front wheel on the ledge, immediately hit and hold your brakes. Start leaning onto the ledge, then press [Space] to change directions. Keep leaning and holding your brakes. Lean all the way back, pulling your wheel up onto the ledge and over your head. As soon as you start to tip over, change directions again and start pedaling. Once the other wheel touches the ground, get some speed then hit the brakes to flip yourself upright. This will take most of your health, but usually works.
To go up a high ramp and come down properly, place your front wheel so it barely touches the ramp and press [Space]. This will put your back wheel in its place.
