Summer break ambitions!

So as we are in the run up to the summer holidays/break, many of us will have more time to practice. So what i would like to know is 1. what you would like to learn or finally land. 2. your time limit for your personal challenge. 3. and if you can a video to show your progression :smiley:

ill start… 1spin consitantly, 3spin, crank roll and also increase my hop height. Im giving myself until the start of summer break :slight_smile:

hehe, i like this muchly! :slight_smile:
I shall try to get 3 spins, a crankflip, i want to increase my gap/roll hop as well as my sidehop to 70cm
I’d like to learn some flat stuff too, maybe rolling wrap/backroll?
all by the end of the summer holidays, so september time
if im extremely awesome then maybe a 5spin? but i doubt it

Also in the break i want to learn some more flat stuff too

Sweet thread man!

By the end of school:
Crankflips
Grind all the way down this one rail

Ride down 11 set

By the end of summer:
540 Unispin
Hickflips
Crankflips off stuff
Grind 6 set skaterail
Grind 11 set ledge
180s on wheel
270s down
Handrail
Improve rolling hops
180 Flips
Maybe more flip tricks…
Gliding
A lot of 36er riding
Varial Roll
Jump a 6 set
Do good at NAUCC

:slight_smile:

hmmm.

-sell my bike and freestyle wheelset (maybe) so i can buy either a 36" like brians or a 29"

-increase side hop (aiming for 50-60cm)

-increase gaps (aiming for 50-60cm)

-Stand up ww

-grind

-360 hoptwist

-increase rolling hops

-foot plants

-180 unispin

-MUNI MUNI MUNI MUNI MUNI…

UniB i guarentee you can gap much further than that by summer, at least 120cm :smiley:

I just want to work my trials this summer.

  • 100 cm sidehop
  • get good at skinny riding
  • pedal grab to skinny - ride
  • go to a couple trials competitions

my 1spins are getting more consistant :D:D:D

…including us teachers. I want to do multiple days of long distance riding. For me, long distance is any ride longer than 30ish miles.

pretty much the same thing for me:p except some others…
-Ride my Coker more than last year
-Do a Century on my Coker
-A few long Muni rides in Gatineau park
-Ride with new people in new spots (mostly Trials)
-Get a job because I need money for UNICON XVI

lol thanks alister but i doubt it :stuck_out_tongue: i can only hop up about 20cm right now, (dont know why i just cant seem to get any height lately and 40 cm long…id really like to get 50 by the summer but we’ll see:(

What I’m going to do:
Crankflip
Grind down a rail
540 unispin
Hickflip
Crankflip down a curb
180s on wheel
Walk on wheel
One footed walk on wheel
Backroll
Seatwrap
270 Unispin
Ride some rails
Rolling wrap
180 unispin off of something high
4 then 5 pallets (when I get some)
Maybe a treyflip or doubleflip

to do this summer: learn to hop/ride WELL with SIF, then jump 15 inches or so. also learn to do multiple mounts, which do no harm to my weak unicycle. which reminds me, i need a new unicycle. which reminds me, i need a job. and now i am depressed

I’m sorry but that made me laugh :smiley:

I’m aiming for much the same. I’ve now got some pallets and I am soon to order my trials uni, so I can start trying trials. I can also only do three mounts, but not the ones most people can do at my stage. Oh, and I am doing a sponsored PhD, so I have some money to buy a reasonably decent uni.

I want to learn these things by the end of summer-

1 spin mor consistantly
3 spin
crank roll
double leg wrap?
Improve my hop hights to at least ?? cm
Improve my gap to ??? cm
learn to ride down stairs

How much should I try to improve to since I am just starting trials for my hight and gap?

good good good…breathe mysteriously…good

start riding my new titanium wheelset. And not break it. (at least not for 1 year.)
I also want to pedal grab 110-120cm

just starting eh? :slight_smile: I’d try get maybe a 40-50cm sidehop and a 130cm gap, try getting into sif hopping as soon as possible if you want to get really good :smiley:

Don’t bother going SIF before you get to 60-70 cm. It’s a bad habit.
