I just bought my first mountain bike, and discovered this morning that unfortunately road riding skills do NOT translate to the trails, other than knowing when/how to shift, I suppose. I ended my ride with the distinct feeling that despite 4,000 miles on the road in the past couple of years I do not actually know how to ride a bike. It was very humbling.

Part of it is just learning to trust the fatter tires and lower psi, and most of it will probably just take time, but is there anything else y'all know of to build skills? Any really helpful articles or youtube videos or general tips? I was having trouble with such basic tasks like slow tight turns - but of course it was my first time out there.
