Wheelies news since 2013

Wednesday, 2 March 2016


Calling all kick scooter, electric scooter and electric unicycle enthusiasts. Don’t miss the exciting inaugural one-day iWheel4Fun extravaganza on Sunday 24 April at the open-space of the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. The Wheelies is proud to be an official partner for iWheel 4 Fun event organized by Singapore Cruise Centre.
If you are an electric uncyclist, you have a chance now to challenge yourself on a time trials obstacle course for e-unicycle. I was honored to be given the opportunity by the organizers to try out the course first hand. There are basically five obstacles to clear:

  1. Knock no cones (Slalom Obstacles)
  2. Adrenaline Rush (Ramp)
  3. Humpty Dumpty No More (Balancing Obstacles)
  4. Right on the Dot (Brake Check)
  5. Drifting (Sharp Turn Obstacles)

While the course is relatively easy for any experienced electric unicyclist, it does emphasize of the importance of having close control of your unicycle at all times and the obstacles does provide ample test on your skills to see if you are up to the mark. e.g. Drifting simulates the daily obstacles we face when we use our electric unicycle as a last mile transportation or running our errands. Braking on a dot is an important skill as we need to be alert at all times to perform an emergency brake. The whole obstacles is even made more exciting with time trial as well as penalty for not doing the obstacle correctly.


The moment participants step into the circuit and ready to go, they will be timed individually from the assigned bibs. Participants are required to overcome five kinds of obstacles within the circuit. Umpires are assigned to each obstacle to ensure participants have performed all five obstacles successfully. Extra time is added on if any obstacle is not done successfully.

Programme highlights
  • Obstacles circuit challenge for kick scooter, electric scooter and electric unicycle
  • Catch the exciting performance by our electric unicycle team
  • Chill out and re-energise at the Red Bull energy station
  • Free try out of devices and product demonstrations
  • Lifestyle booths offering special promotions
  • Free shuttle bus service will be provided at scheduled timing.
Come on down to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal on the 24th April. It’s a great way for the whole family to spend the day outdoors in Singapore’s idyllic East Coast learning more about personal mobility devices, how to use them safely and enjoy the thrills and spills of those who have mastered the art of riding their devices.
