For many people, standing up helps to get the front wheel up.
Hips don’t lie: Once the balance point is found, keep
that wheel up—not by pushing and pulling in your
arms, but by shifting your hips from side to side and
applying more pressure on the opposite side of the
saddle towards the direction you want to go.
Find the balance point: There is a sweet spot
between not being able to loft the front wheel and
“looping out.” Finding this spot takes practice. Once
you find that balance point, you’ll be able to use the
pedals and brakes to stay there—and ride wheelies
like a pro. ❏
