joining the uni croud after 35+ years

well I posted here a while back asking for input, got some good comments
Thanks to those that shared. So I ended up getting a 24" Torker LX
I have been lurking for some time now and noticed where as I thought I would be, well older, I am NOT and boy am I glad to see that :smiley:
anyway my wife bought me the unicycle for my birthday and I got it this past weekend. we went to the tennis courts and after a good 30 mins of tennis I grabbed the uni, I used the fence and just rode around getting my bearings back
after about 20 mins I was able to get away with 2 to 3 pedals without holding on. I felt pretty good about that. so this morning I bought it to work as I have a concrete pad with a building to hold onto, it’s about 120’ long stretch
after about 45 mins of non stop practice this morning I was making it from one end to the other without holding on and without any UPD’s about 1 out of every 3 tries
I did fall 3 times :o but all other UPD’s were controlled or at least I stayed on my feet, only dropped the uni 2 times other than the falls
I don’t know but I’m feeling pretty stoked about my progress so far
not bad considering it’s been almost 40 years since I rode a uni last
I have to say it’s just as fun as I remember it being :smiley:

Welcome back! I myself just started up several months ago after about a 10 year hiatus. I’ve been havin’ a blast. There’s a lot more options available than there used to be “back in the day”, and with online forums and social media, the community we have access to is a lot larger. Enjoy!

Keep up the hard work. You’ll be riding great and having a lot more fun before you know it.

A lot of guys on this forum have similar stories.

Welcome back to unicycling. No one has to tell you how fun it is :slight_smile: Wow, it has to be crazy hot for you in Savannah. Enjoy yourself!

yea we are seeing 97 today with 106 index, I am only riding early in the morning and still drenched after 20 min
