Wheelie: ‘A manoeuvre on a bicycle or motorbike in which the front wheel is raised off the ground ‘(Collins dictionary).
“Oh the wheelie is a cool trick”
Well, the wheelie truly is a manoeuvre and not simply a trick. Yes, it’s exciting to do (and look at!), yes it feels advanced and boosts your confidence (and social media ‘likes’ if you are into that). But, it’s much more than a fun trick to do and show off.
How does the wheelie help us improve our enduro skills:
The skill of lifting up the front tyre while being in control of the bike helps overcoming obstacles such as: rocks, fallen trees, logs, deep truck tracks (especially in the forest).
Better body coordination.
Improving balance and concentration.
Helps improve spatial awareness.
Helps in becoming better and more confident in controlling the bike.
Of course, we will be there to support you on your wheelie adventure.
