new to Muni, any tips? places to ride SoCal

Hi all, new the group, and new to Muni.
I used to perform on a schwinn 24" about 20 years ago at a theater. Could ride backwards stop in place and used to bunny hop. Times changed and i put the uni away. The other day I pulled the old schwinn out of the rafters after nearly 20 years of not even looking at it. I rode down my walkway the very first try. Rode it a bit more bailed a few times, but stayed up more than down. I decided I want to get back into it. My schwinn is thrashed. Decided to check out new unis.
Saw a Muni and decided I had to have one. Used to ride MTN bikes alot so thought it looked like a good transition. Bought a 24" torker dx after reading a few favorable reviews.
What a difference. Very glad i bought wrist guards and waited until they arrived, cause i needed um 2 minutes into my first attempt on the torker. Instant face plant. I cut a few inches off the seat post to lower a bit. I took the uni up to a grassy field and was able to ride it a bit. Bailed few more times but did some turns and was able to stop in place for awhile.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for setting up the Muni for good rider position, seat location tire pressure, and maybe just some general getting started in Muni tips, or could point me in the direction of some info.
Also wondering if there are any groups or clubs in the ventura county area that had rides and maybe rider clinics or something. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

For muni the trick is powering through terrain to keep forward momentum and balance. Use your seat handle to push weight onto the pedals and also to keep your feet well planted- you can dampen a lot of trail bumps by running low tire pressures, a few notches above whatever pressure the rim bottoms out at when hopping- a good muni wheel will roll over small curbs as long as you hold on. Basically, the more aggressive you ride (within reason:D ) the easier it gets.

Welcome to the forums; try using the advanced search option, the map, or post in Rec/Sports if you’re looking for more SoCal riders, they’re on here.

good advice

Thanks Blunt, I will try those techniques. I definitely can lose some tire pressure I have mine up around 45.
