is a mountain need for muni?

i have been wondering is it still muni if its not on a mountain…or down hill becouse 2 day i was on a back trail and it was all muddy and every thing since theres no mountains in florida …is it still muni if its off road and rough terrain is basically what i want 2 know

if it is still muni …then i had my first muni ride 2 day…i got covered in so much mud …and my uni was caked with it.

if some one would be nice enough 2 answer this it would be much appreciated

Yup, it’s MUni. MUni = off-road.

thanks…i just wanted 2 make sure…haha…i prolly sounded so stupid for asking but im a unicycling newb but a muni rider now…(i wish jacksonville had mountains)

Not stupid at all, and welcome to off-road unicycling… such a good time!

Off road is the way to go.

I will never be able to hop and jump on a unicycle, but I don’t care. Every time I go off road on a unicycle, I can’t stop smiling.:slight_smile:

Welcome to the wonderful world of dirt!!!

As a wise old mountainbiker once said:

“Roads are for people who don’t know where to ride”:slight_smile: :slight_smile:

It’s muni, but go find a mountain, and you’ll have a hard time going back, no matter how much mud you’ve got.

Krashin’ Kenny, I think that MTB’er was dead wrong. If going 50mph down a road isn’t exhilirating, then someone had better check your adrenalyn gland. And this is coming fron a diehard offroad uni and bike rider.

I do say, though, Senor Coconut is right. You wouldn’t want to become some loser who does noting but spam upstanding unicycle forums with poor Hunter S. Thomson quotes, would you?

Ask yourself: Do people ride mountain bikes in Florida? Same thing.

Not really. Most mountain bikes never get ridden on dirt. The vast majority of them, in fact. Same for Hummers. But you get the idea.

This was why George Peck (the grandfather of this area of our sport) always preferred to call it rough terrain unicycling. The mountains are optioinal. It wouldn’t be fair to all those people living in the flat parts of the world.

Like surfing. :slight_smile:

In case anyone needs to be reminded of this, please don’t respond to the heckler. It’s obvious what he wants. [note from gilby: he has now been killfiled]

Try riding on a senor coconut head. That would be similar to municycling.

you can do anything if you put your mind to it

Saying things like that just tempts fate, 6 months from now you’ll find yourself lauching off telephone boxes just like the rest of us :slight_smile: (not that I’ve ever actually done that)

and how long have u been uni-ing?

Same length of time as me, about 3 years. Hopping and dropping is something you come into pretty gradually. You start by riding over some small roots, then a few small drops, and after a while you get more confident and begin dropping some respectable distances. While its definitely not mandatory to be doing insane technical trails when you do muni, its always nice to push yourself to the limits of your ability since you get better much faster when you do. The more you vary your rides, the more fun you have (IMHO).

Loose.

P.S. FYI, I don’t think Kington99 was being entirely serious.
