I did learn to glide, and hop seat out higher than I can seat in. But I didn’t go to NAUCC or CMW, or buy a MUni (I bought a Coker instead), and I didn’t start our club. Not officially, anyway, one might call it a club, I dunno.
Now, for this year…
land a unispin consistently
do a 360 hopspin
get to level, say, seven. Or maybe eight, I’ll see.

Last year I didn’t even know I would start unicycling. Now I’m trying to learn the unispin, want to drop more than 1.5m at some point this year, want to coast further than a half revolution, as I have glided down most of the little hills around here, and I’m looking forward to meet Kris Holm in Denmark this summer, and shake his hand.
Mostly. Here was last year’s:
In chronological order:
Be in good shape for Moab and ride it a hell of a lot better than I did last year.
500 miles minimum on my GB 36" over Seattle’s short summer.
Get over my lame-ass fear of drops, and own a few more stunts at Gasworks Park.
Never got to the one-footin’, but ticked off all the others. Fear of drops is relative, of course. Last year, the fear was in the 12"–18" range. This year, I’m semi-comfortable at two feet, and now fear picnic tables.
Be in better shape for Moab than I was last year.
500 miles minimum on my GB4 36". Do at least one multi-day “mini-tour”.
Join Unibrier on his century ride. Pray he decides to make it metric.
Get proficient with rolling hops, at least to height needed to clear the average fallen tree.
Solidify my seat out riding. (so that I can seat out hop)
Well, I can ride seat out pretty well now. I can even SIF hop, just not on to anything big Ride one-footed.
Yep, got that one. Start attempting trials (once I get that seat out thing)
umm…not exactly Wheel-Walk
not even close Crank-Grab
I can crang-HANG at least. NOT Sprain my ankle at Cali Muni Weekend.
Seeing as I didn’t go… Solidify my backwards riding.
It’s better, but not solid. Get enough courage to ride down more than than three steps.
Yep, I’ve gone down lots now. Do a coker tour.
I did the California Coast Classic. SF to LA over 8 days (500+miles) Thank Kris for designing such a kick-ass low cost muni
…if he reads this thread. Start making some shots at basketball Uni (hey, where was everyone tonight?)
I haven’t played for a while, but I did make a few shots.
Do the stuff I didn’t get down last year.
Build the 26/39er into a 36/ 54er
100 miles in one day!
Take more MUni risks.
Last year I forgot to make any resolutions, so I guess I resolved to do nothing. For the most part, that’s what I did. This year, I resolve to:
1: Find time to unicycle 30 miles/week this summer.
2: Get handlebars for my coker
3: Ride 30 miles in one day
4: Learn to idle, and do it on the coker
5: Get a mountain unicycle
6: Get back into Aikido, so that I can be more aggressive when I ride.
7: (Optional) Use unicycle to find and marry a woman who is too proud to let her husband work.
1.get better at drops. picnic tables aren’t scary anymore but much high than that freaks me out to no end.
2. seat out. riding and hopiing. sill can’t do either at all.
3. master idling. personal record is about 10 times. gotta work on both feet too.
4. get a “real” job so i can afford more unis.
5. purchase a trials, and a 29er if money is plentiful.
6. work more skills from the skill levels not just muni/trials drops/hops.
Those were mine from last year. I didn’t land the 10 set rail, or even try it again this year. i did the 360s down sets, didnt get a 6 though. havent landed crankflips, but ive been doing no foot tricks, so im ok with that one.
for this year:1. start doing more trick with my left foot forward.
2.Learn to grind my back foot
3. Get either a crankflip or a unispin down 5 stairs.
Good Idea, this last year at CMW I had a eally bad cold and flt like crap. Not to mention it was frezing cold outside. Hopefully this year, I can go to all of the conventions and make a good impression of myself…
I kept most of my resolutions from last year, except learning to glide- which I’m not particularly interested in doing anyway.
My 2005 resolutions:
-Ride 100miles in less than 6hrs 44min
-Ride more than 202 miles in 24hrs
-Ride the Karapoti Classic (a local 50km MUni race) in under 4hrs
-Ride the Mont 24hr MTB race in Canberra (Andrew Carter are you reading this?)
-Double the number of members in the NZ Unicycle Federation
-Get sports funding for NZUNI
-Ride the Chch to Nelson race (445km) on a B*ke
-Ride the Alps Unitour
