I have just looked at the above link. It lists the levels of skill as defined by
the IUF. They seem impossible!!!

I think that the IUF should ad some new skills which most of us can manage…

  1. Ride forwards 50 metres and ungracfully dismount (Fall Off)
  2. Attempt to ride backwards and wobble a lot!
  3. wheel walk and bruise bottom.
  4. Ride one legged in a very curvy unstraight line for about 1 metre and fall
    off.
  5. Hop once and fall off.

I have to say that anyone who gets to level 10 must have talent oozing from
every pore of there body, or some deal going on with a godly being.

Out of interest, can anyone in this group (HONESTLY AND TRUEFULLY)manage all the
skills in level 10?

If anyone can i feel very lucky to be in the same newsgroup as them

Rick Bissell did this. I have preserved his humorous skill levels on my site:

I can do all the skills, but not complete enough to pass the level. Besides, I
never learned the hand wheel walk at level 8, so I’m forever a level 7.

Cool. Everyone should note, God very seldom uses e-mail.

Not to mention the body armour. Must be some sort of marketing ploy… :slight_smile:

The Panther Pride Demo Team is back in Action! We have just finished our second
week of practice. We are 78 strong. We passed our second level 7 rider, Katy a
freshman this year. We also passed Travis as a level 6, Travis is a 7th grader.
I also heard that we have a nine year old who passed level 5. Barb K.

I like the idea of the danish Uni licence scheme. The different colours of
licence distinguish different abilities. It starts with a white liecence which
if I remember correctly shows that you know what a unicycle is and have tried to
ride one. Trine may be able to fill in more here if shes reading, or Lars?

Hi Shane,

I wouldn’t let the skill levels put you off in the slightest. Me thinks they’re
only really there for the sake of people being able to say “I can do this, this
and this” without having to real off a huge list of moves. They’re also a good
starting point when you want to learn something new but you’re not sure what -
look through the list and pick something. Some moves are a combination of other
moves so you have to learn to do each of these before you can put them all
together to produce a new one.

When I started riding about 6 months back I read through the list, gulped and
forgot about it. Unfortunately nothing on the list is impossible. It’s just a
matter of preparing yourself for loads and loads of practice, frustration and
the elating feeling you get when you do it for the first time. And just being
able to ride a unicycle is a major achievment in itself. The more you pratice
the better you get but it takes time and the better you get the easier it is to
learn new moves. Me, I want to be able to do everything right now which adds to
the frustration levels but it gets me out practicing every day.

I agree with Neil. What I’ve seen is that the IUF level skills are arranged
pretty logically. The skills required for additional levels builid on what
you’ve learned from the last level, so if you take them in progression, I’d
expect learning to be easier. I think that’s the idea, helping you learn things
that you already have the basics for rather then trying something you later find
would have been much easier if you’d learned something else first.

For example, stomach on seat prepares you for seat out, idling prepared you for
one foot, etc.
