News release

Can a wheelie save the world? No. But social distancing can, and practicing wheelies can encourage social distancing. That’s why Ryan Leech from Online Mtn Bike Skills Coaching is giving away a  30-Day Wheelie Challenge course.

This a goal that can be done outside (safely, and with proper distance) that pays its dividends long after the challenge has ended.

As pro trials rider Ryan Leech 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, has opened up free access to his 30-day wheelie tutorial. 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.
