First bunny hop seems impossible and after that it just clicks. The way I got it is to point your feet at the ground and push back on the pedals then try and jump straight up and the bike will follow.

Yep even I can 2-3 inches off the ground! Within just 3 days of starting during my lunch break :D.

Is it possible to Bunny hop the right way using SPD's I'm just about to purchase some... Just use the same technique as before?

If anyone rides in Sulham Wood give me a shout :).
