Wheelie

September 21, 2011

I’m always in awe when I see a city kid riding a wheelie for blocks and blocks so I’m happy I finally caught one on video. This was yesterday near Yeadon, PA, just outside the Philly silly limits.

I taught myself how to ride a unicycle, and I can even ride a bike backwards, but as a kid I used to try and try to ride a proper wheelie on a bike AND motorcycle but never had any luck. As a matter of fact, I STILL try to this day. I always worry about going back too far and splitting my melon.

A couple years ago I saw a dude riding a bike like a skateboard. He was standing with one foot on the seat and one on the handlebars, I shit you not, standing straight up, flying down the middle of south 4th Street in Society Hill. Don’t know if he was able to hit the brakes with his toes or not, but it was crazy.
