ASK THE BMXPerts: WHEELIE HOPS
Bookmark and Share

Hi,
My name is Diego, I am 10 years old and I just can’t seem to do a bunny hop. I can do a wheelie and turn my wheel when I am up in the air, but that does not seem like much. BMXing is my favorite thing to do and I would like to get better. Thanks.

Diego, you are on the right track poppin’ wheelies. It may not feel like much but adding seemingly simple things to tricks like wheelies, turning the bars for example, helps you develop your bike handling skills and will eventually make tricks like bunnyhops easier. When you are ready to work on turning your wheelies into bunnyhops, try jumping up from the pedals when your front wheel is off the ground, while pulling up on the bars at the same time. You might be surprised at how close you are to the trick you are after.
