"Wonder Wheels" on the Move
"So we call it the whopper. A whopper is the bunny hop with a tailwhip," said Nitschke.
Nitschke and his buddy Brian, a 25 year veteran of the sport of BMX, are pedaling more than just bike tricks.
"What we're talking about today can and will save your life," Nitschke claims.
When Bill was in sixth grade, a boy tried to lead him down a different path. He talks to kids about what it feels like to be tempted.
"So this eighth grader came up to me and offered me something commonly known as drugs. So I had a choice to make. Do I do drugs and ruin my life or do I keep sticking to my goals and dreams?"
Bill and Brian credit their drug-free lifestyles with ramping up their professional careers, including placing in the top ten in the X games.
"These kids are faced with something and I tell them you have a choice. You can do drugs and ruin your life or you can stick to your goals and dreams and be somebody someday. Be the best in the world at what you do. "
Perhaps invent a whopper. It all depends on how you want to land.
Wonder wheels also talks to kids about the importance of wearing helmets. The team is based out of Indiana.
