Just getting into unicycling, any tips, etc.?

Hey folks, I’m 15 and I’m from Minnesota. I’ve ridden flatland for a while. For those of you who don’t know what that is, this is me riding:

Anyway, I’m very dedicated to it, but unicycling also looked like a worthy pursuit to play around with in my spare time. I got my first unicycle today (Torker from danscomp.com) I’ve only got to ride it for about a half hour, but I can get into riding without holding onto anything and pedal for about 100 feet. Turning kind of baffles me, and I have some questions about the sport, does anyone know any good websites for this, or where I could find some online unicycling videos? Just pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks much.

Get in touch with the Twin City Unicycle Club.
They will help you out. Looks like the convention will be there in 2003 as
well.

Hi Stillwater, welcome to the uni world! You seem quite skilled on the
flatland bike and learning to ride a uni in half an hour is very fast.

Some web pointers:
<http://wobbling.unicyclist.com/> for a lot of well-presented hardware
info and learning tips
<http://lutkus.com/> for trials videos (a lot of them, needs broadband
connection)
<www.muniac.com> for basic and mountain unicycling tips.
