I need some advice..

Hello Folks…i’m new to this group and to the wonderful world of Unicycling… so
i just have one question… What is a good way to start learning how to ride
one… Is there a prefered method for starting? Maybe a good book, video, website
someone can recommend… I haven’t put any practice time in yet as to i’m unsure
of where to start or how to start?? Any help would be greatly appreciated…

What is a good way to start

A good book to get is: HOW TO RIDE YOUR UNICYCLE by Charlie Dancey. It is
published by Butterfingers, you can get it on-line from the on-line book stores
or I think you can get it from www.unicycle.com .

It is a really helpful book, that covers everything you will need to get
started, and some advanced stuff as well.

Good Luck.

Innes Dunbar.

I ordered this from Amazon (UK) a few weeks ago, and it hasn’t arrived yet. I
might be a good idea to trawl around for a supplier who has one in stock. It
hasn’t stopped me from getting started though. I’ve found that the best place to
launch myself from is a paved area outside my local community centre which has
some 4’ high posts. With one hand on each or two posts, I can get some balance
before falling forward, pedalling a bit to catch up then falling off.

There are some web sites with advice on starting; a search on Google will point
you to some of them. I find that I don’t like some of the advice, so I pick the
bits which work for me.

I’ll email you (Tim) the advice I found most helpful.

Cheers, Jim

It is a good little book, but has been out of print for the last month… but
the new print run arrived yesterday so they are available again. :slight_smile:
