Why can't I do a wheelie

Your Question

Why can’t I do a wheelie properly yet


Hi there and welcome to Ask Alex,   

Sounds like you are determined and trying hard to master a wheelie. They can be tricky, but with the right support you could be on your way to completing one in no time.   

We wonder what it would be like for you to ask a trusted adult or friend in your life to help you with this? They might be able to help you figure out a way to do a successful wheelie.   

While wheelies can be fun, it is also important to consider how you can do them safely. You might consider if your guardian thinks they are safe to do at your age and if you have the proper safety equipment.   

Why not call us here in Childline to let us know how you are getting on with them? The freephone number is 1800 66 66 66 or if you prefer you could use our Live Chat on (click on the orange live chat button/tab). All the Childline services are free, confidential and open 24 hours a day, every single day. We would love to hear how you are getting on with them.  

Wishing you the very best of fun with this! Remember, practice makes progress!

 Keep yourself safe,
