closer and closer to that balance point you try to lift the front wheel to that point where it takes minimum effort to stay balanced on the rear wheel once you find this balance point the back break is your friend put it on full and it will stop your back wheel dead and bring the front end back down to the ground, eventually the aim is to get to that balance point and keep it by using a combination of dabbing the rear break and pedalling harder once you’ve begun to master the forwards and rearward balance points you will then need to control the side balance which you can do in two ways firstly by using your knees, feet and overall body weight secondly by turning the handlebars in the opposite direction to that which you’re falling, just make sure you can straighten the handlebars when you come back down to earth and when you have finished your wheelie try not to hit the ground too hard with your front wheel you are on a road bike after all.
