Yeah, yeah, this is supposed to be a post for young guys, but I’m a young guy at heart :slight_smile: I am only into muni, though I have a 29er for road riding, but it never gets used. My son Alex is 13, he started when I did and he’s at about the same level, but rides a lot less. Apparently the younger you are the faster you learn :astonished:

So far we have focused almost entirely on muni, so single track riding is our strength. Alex is more interested in tricks, so he’s worked on hopping, crank flips, uni spinds, pedal grinds, backwards riding, etc… We have progressed to fairly advanced single track in six months, still working on developing rhythm for longer rides before UPD’s, esp riding over larger obstacles and developing endurance.

Our biggest problem is we don’t have any riding partners, so starting this Spring we’re going to be sponsoring a unicycle club at my son’s middle school. Already we have two local teens riding unis, hoping to make that number grow in the new year!
