There is something instinctive built into us, no matter our age. From the first moment we put a leg over the frame of a bike and begin to pedal something takes over, we are drawn to tug on the handlebars and lift the front wheel off the ground. The endorphins rush and a sense of shock turns to a smile – this is how it often begins, doing a wheelie for the first time. The humble wheelie is a gateway into a whole new world that for many will become a lifelong passion. For Danny MacAskill his first wheelie would be the start of an incredible career, in his latest film ‘Do A Wheelie’, Danny shows just how much he loves some back wheel action.

“ I have seen first-hand the popularity of bike riding explode over the last few years and it puts a smile on my face to see so many people loving getting outside on their bikes. Working with adidas Five Ten, we wanted to make a film that included as many types of riding as possible and let other riders become the star of the film. The wheelie was the best place to start, if you can ride a bike, you can have a good go at doing a wheelie and from there the opportunities are endless. We wanted to celebrate the wheelie, show how accessible riding bikes can be and put a smile on people’s faces. If someone picks up a bike and has a big grin trying to wheelie, then job done.” – Danny MacAskill
