Okay… I’m going to post a ‘serious’ post today!
My friend in Tecumseh, MI suprised me on the weekend by saying that he
‘used to’ unicycle years ago (before MUni and trials). The last time he
even sat on one was five years ago and it was someone elses. He had given
his up way before then.
I adjusted the seat on my Pashley and stuck it under his nose (the Pashley
not the seat) to let him try. He got up beside a tree and for several
tries gave it a go. After those several tries he certainly got farther
than I did at the beginning but fell after just a couple of revolutions.
We didn’t have time for him to try further as we were taking all of our
kids to see Harry Potter. I’m sure that on a better surface and with an
hour more he would have been able to do okay.
What I’d like to know is, do you always remember how to ride a uni just as
you always remember how to ride a bike?
Does the type of uni make a BIG difference to the ‘comeback’?
What’s the longest anyone here has gone without riding?
And… was MUni or Cokering or Trials, being relatively new on the
unicycling scene, what drew you back to it?
