When the velocity downhill increases enough, you will soon notice that it's better to stop kicking. It is easiest to stand on the footboard with both feet pointing slightly aside to the same direction. At the end of the descent let your Kickbike roll while the velocity decreases to your normal kicking speed. A beginner often starts kicking while the speed is still too high and touching the ground only slows the journey. Always reserve enough room for braking by adjusting your velocity according to visibility. It takes more time to stop in downhill than on flat land.
