If you fancy yourself a bit of a daredevil and you’ve always wanted to learn how to wheelie, then why not head to a wheelie school, to learn the ropes on someone else’s bike?
There are loads of schools around the UK that will have you hoisting the front wheel in no time. Of course, we know this is illegal on public roads, but if you’re looking for an adrenaline rush and want to learn this impressive skill in the presence of trained professionals, it’s a day to remember.
Training facilities will provide the bike but you normally have to provide your own bike gear and in most cases, a valid motorcycle licence. Most of the schools use bikes fitted with anti-flip wheelie bars, which cut the ignition if you go up too high or too quickly.
A course usually lasts for a full day and guarantees a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with small groups, so you get a more personalised experience. Here are some of the top wheelie schools up and down the country:
Who is it for
If you've always wanted to hoist the front but you're not quite brave enough to learn on your own bike.
Why you should do it
You'll learn great machine control, surprise yourself with how easy it is when you have the technique sorted and you'll have a great laugh.
What does it cost
Roughly £150 for the day.
