Respecting our current challenges of distancing, positive challenges are something we could use a little more of. This 30-Day wheelie challenge is more than just learning something that looks cool. Although I’m no wheelie master, I confidently feel that what I have learned by practicing has translated to more fun and control on the trail!
Ryan Leach is teaching this FREE 30-day challenge HERE. Ryan says, “I believe everyone deserves to experience the joy that comes from pulling off an effortless wheelie,” which we could all use a bit of right now.
So Leech, a PEARL iZUMi athlete, is opening up free access to his 30-day wheelie tutorial on April 1st. It’s all about slow, safe progression to getting that front tire off the ground. It starts with a quick lean back and crank of those pedals on day one, and gradually increases until riders are over that back wheel comfortably pedaling away. Then, at long last, at the trailhead for their first ride of the season, they’ll be able to show the crew what they’ve been up to while the rest talks about their newly found paper mâché hobby or 43-step risotto that they have—”officially”—mastered.
The best part: for our collective efforts and the goal of getting more people enjoying themselves on bikes, PEARL iZUMi will be donating $1 for every rider enrolled to Trips for Kids, which provides bikes and cycling experiences through local chapters for communities in need.
