Default what am I doing wrong? ww


If the driveway is sloped try ww uphill rather than downhill. It is
easier to keep control when going up a slight grade rather than down.

Technique:

You need longer foot pushes. The foot pushes should go toe to heel,
toe to heel, toe to heel.

Start at the top of the tire (as near to the crown as you can manage)
with the toes on the tire. Push forward. Extend the push till the
back of the heel is on the tire.

When the heel of the right foot is on the tire (at the end of the push)
start the left foot with the left toes up near the crown of the tire.
Now that the left toes are on the tire you can remove the right foot
from the tire. In this manner you will always have a foot in contact
with the tire so you can keep control.

Continue like that. Toe to heel, toe to heel, toe to heel.

It is always one foot in front of the other. Never should both feet be
beside each other. Think of the tire as being skinny. Like walking a
tight rope.

One foot in front of the other. Toe to heel. Long pushes.
