I’ve finally crossed off #7 on my list of 21 Things I Want To Do Before I Turn 21 and one of my lifelong goals: Do a wheelie on a bicycle. Granted, it wasn’t a very good wheelie, but considering I could barely get my front tire off the ground until very recently this year, it counts. Believe me, it counts. xD
I could only get my front tire about 3 inches off the ground until my brother suggested I try it in place with one foot planted on the ground (hence why my foot is not on the pedal) and try to pull the bike over backwards. I didn’t get that far, but I still got a more impressive height, and got a better idea of how I should sit while doing it. Who knows–maybe someday I’ll be able to wheelie over a longer distance. Maybe. Or maybe not.
We then proceeded to bicycle down stairs like the awesome people we are. ;P
