My new years resolution… 1) To get into some serious unicycling. 2) To have this mighty unicycle in my room. 3) To get my unicycle speed record smashed once again. 4) To visit other unicyclists in Oz. 5) To still be the weird and unusual person that i am.
Learn some more awesome tricks!
Rh more then a 7 set:o
Plan/attend some really good group rides around the Chicago area
Maybe go to Naucc and/or other conventions
get a job to pay for these…vvv
Buy a muni and/or a 36er
Start upgrading to Isis
Hmm… upgrade my 36’er, get a job, do more writing(short stories, poetry, etc.), get out and unicycle more, save up more money, help some of my friends learn to uni(a few got unicycles for christmas YAY!)
I finally didn’t dismiss the idea of taking up unicycling again. I did something about it and survived retraining my body to adjust to one wheel. Since then I’ve discovered off road riding, riding skinnies, popping off curbs and over low obstacles and can now idle, do a few backward rotations, and freemount a 29 which less than a year ago I couldn’t even imagine myself riding such a big wheel.
What is in store for 2008…
static mount the 29
backward rotations on the 24 and 29 (also like Legtod for more than a few rotations)
get riding with a partner or group which might mean organizing a uni group or yes even ride with bicyclists
survive my new metal pinned petals (I’ve never used metal)
become as comfortable on a 36 as I am now on the 29
volunteer regularly to help maintain the trails around my area
plan and survive a ride of at least 50 miles… then try 100
I also want to learn to juggle… not juggle on the uni but just learn to juggle. I think the mental and physical challenge would be good.
My only unicycling resolution is to improve my seat-out trials skills, which are currently tentative at best. I expect my other unicycle skills to improve by virtue of the rides I do and the aforementioned resolution, so no other resolution is required.
New goals to add to my list, put my 36er on a diet, and attempt to replicate my 23.5mph (37.8kph)personal best but do it in a velodrome on an official timed flying 200m sprint I’ll need video and photos too.
