At school, we have very broad stairs that lead down into a large courtyard. Each step must be at least a foot wide; there are about 10-15 steps from top to bottom. It's pretty good to learn on because if you're not comfortable riding strait down, their is about 200 feet of length to each step, so a unic can regain balance before riding down the next step. Even though it's not very difficult, I've managed to get a miriad of responses from local passers-by: everything from gasps to a comment on my unicycle prowess (at lest, that's how I decided to recieve it). - John Larkin
