One Wheel Up
The world record for the longest continuous wheelie (riding on one wheel of a bicycle) is slightly more than eight miles, and held by a South Yorkshire, England, youth. While there is no documented Arizona wheelie record, maybe one will be recorded at the second annual SanTan Wheelie Jam Super Picnic.
Tempe Bicycle Action Group and SanTan Brewery present the event, which begins with an 11 a.m. bike parade, and continues all afternoon with bike polo, a custom bike show, a foot down slow ride, mini and tall bike races, BMX and fixie tricks demos, bike mechanic build-off, roller racing, and live music from a handful of local acts. And of course there’s the featured wheelie contest.
Sat., April 28, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2012
