At Harvey Mudd (where I go to school) the new unics generally use a long
railing rather than people. We just clutch onto the railing, riding back
and forth till the unicycle feels comfortable under you. After being
able to go the length of the railing (about 50 yards) and only tapping
it rather than holding on for dear life, we move out into open ground
(and learn how to turn).
