In the past every now and then I would come across someone who had been riding bikes for a while but had never heard of counter steering. I believe if you want to ride a bike safely then you should be using countersteering. It enables you to change direction much faster than just moving your weight around.

Is there anyone out there that does not use countersteering? If you don't understand countersteering, try riding along in a straight line at reasonable speed and very slowly push on the left hand handlebar until something starts to happen. You will notice that it makes the bike turn left. This seems illogical until you look into the physics/mechanics of it more closely.
