3 / 7. Bicycle

Below you will find our step-by-step GIF series, and at the bottom of the page our tutorial video.

1. STARTING POSITION

2. Making steps with it

Place the flowerstick lengthwise in front of you. Place one handstick on one side of the flowerstick’s far end and the other under the flowerstick’s nearer end.

Lift the closer handstick and pull the farther one towards you… repeat this again and again. This is how the flowerstick will start to make “steps”.

3. Rolling in the air

4. Reversing the roll

While “making the steps”, raise your hands and roll the stick in the air. At this point, you should be playing with the handsticks in the middle of the flowerstick. This will slow down the rotation.

At the beginning, you won’t be able to roll in one direction for long, so it’s a good idea to reverse the direction of the roll after a few rounds. Back and forth.

About the Bicycle

Use both hands to turn the stick, but in a completely different direction than the Helicopter.

It’s relatively easy to learn the basics, and at the same time, it improves your movement, so if you practice it, you’ll gain a lot of useful experience in other areas too.  However, to build it impressively into your game, you need more experience. Until you can’t combine the two-handed spin with other tricks, the flowerstick will always fall down after a few circles. Still, we love the trick for its simplicity. 🙂

Common mistakes:

  • Bad starting position. It’s important to get it right, so if it’s really not working, check again.
  • After raising your hands, you are still spinning it at the end (near the tassel) of the flowerstick. This way, after a few rounds, the stick will always fall down as it will become too fast.
  • You want to spin it in one direction for too long. Don’t want to! Even at an advanced level, this is not always easy. Change direction!
IMPORTANT

It’s OK if the stick always falls down after a few rounds. If you’re a beginner with the stick, it’s natural that it’s harder to get the hang of it. To spin steadily in Bicycle and combine it with other tricks, you need more playing experience.
