Being the guy who’s Web site says riding down sand dunes is a ‘Thing not to
do’ (http://www.unicycling.com/things/), I thought I should comment.
Back when we did it, there was no such thing as MUni per se. The unicycle
had a 20" x 1.75 tire, and the sand was really fine. So it ate up the wheel
and pedal bearings. A better-equipped MUni of today would probably ride
higher in the sand, and be less susceptible to the damage we got.
What my site doesn’t mention was that it really was fun, and since we knew
the damage was already done, we did it several more times.
As to your learning to roll in a crash, you demonstrated to yourself that
you do actually have time to think in a crash. If the instructions are
already there for a roll, your body has enough time to do one. Good
