I did a post on the UUU forum, and was told about this one, so thought i’d join up and say hi
My names Darren and i’m a complete beginner when it comes to Unicycles. Fancied one ages ago, but never did anything about it, so now, at 36 years old, decided it’s a good time to start
After a bit of research, and not wanting to spend out £’s , i’ve decided to go for this one : http://www.unicycle.uk.com/unicycles/muni-24-29/clubmuni24blk.html , the 24" club beginner Muni.
Around where i live, ( UK, Cambridgeshire, near Peterborough ), the roads are full of speed bumps, but there are loads of fields, footpaths and tracks. I enjoy walking through the countryside, so figured riding off road would also be a good idea - and maybe grass and mud hurts less than concrete when you fall off :lol:
Only just ordered the Muni, so looking forward to it arriving, putting it together, and then giving it a go - expecting to fall off lots but have fun trying.
You’re in for a period of fun and frustration but the following weeks/months are where you’ll experience the magic most quickly
It took me a couple of weeks of riding up and down the length of a fence before it finally clicked for me…others seem to get it much quicker but I guess we’re all different.
Check out my first month or more at ‘Finally got started’ to see what the first week or two might hold for you…
Good luck fella…practice every day even if it’s only for 5 minutes.
Had a good read through your post. As a beginner its always helpful to see other beginners and how they managed / got on. Was also helpful being able to watch your progress too.
It does seem to be quite addictive - I tend to use the phrase ‘one more go’ quite a bit.
