The Art of Bunny

The Art Of the Bunny:

First you want to grab a nice size obstical that wont obstruct your path...*a small cardboard box will work*

Then you want to place it on the ground

Give yourself some room and distance....

Ride at a average speed toward the box * BE RELAXED *

Just as you reach 2 feet toward the box bring up your front end......

Then being loose you jump up sucking the bike up with you.....

This is a hard element to learn but a must for any hardcore bmxer.....Just wait till you need to learn to Manual... There is a skill!!!!!

thats comepletely vague.

1. Ride along at a reasonable speed (It doesnt matter
how fast really)
2. Lift your front end up, the higher the better.
3. When your front wheel arrives at a decent height
(usually a few inches, but high enough to clear the
box or whatever you might be bunnyhopping over)
pull your handlebars DIAGONALLY FORWARD/UP. This
will bring your back end off the ground
4. Practice getting higher by tucking your knees into your
chest when your off the ground


This is also known as a wheely-hop
