Thanks :-)

Hi

Thanks for everyone who’s offered their hints and tips, you’ve been really
great. I found that I was in fact riding it backwards, stupid
me. It’s one of those seats that’s pretty much symmetrical, so I guess I didn’t
really think about which end was the front.

Anyway, I’m going to have to find some reasonably flat places to practise, cause
our house is in a pretty hilly area. I don’t think I’m quite up to going down
our street, it’s a bit of a killer. Anyway, thanks for all your help.

Jacinta

P.S: Oh, by the way, I’ve made up with Thor, no hard feelings. It’s
sunny today :slight_smile:

After awhile the neighbors and locals will all see it as normal. I and many of
us here on the list ride to work when possible. I have made it my personal goal
to ride around town until everyone sees unicycling as a normal mode of
transportation. All of my neighbors have become accustomed to it so far. They no
longer look in astonishment or get in near accidents when they drive by. From
time to time I have to venture out of my neighborhood and go for a long ride. I
start missing all the funny/astonished looks. I try to find a street with lots
of people out and about. Often times I end up putting on a show. I enjoy showing
off (as most of us do). Have fun!

Exactly! All my non-juggling/non-unicycling/non-weird people friends just don’t
get it. They either say “You bought a what? What do you want that for?” or “Do
you want to be a clown or something?” or just give me looks that say “Omigod,
she’s finally cracked”.

It’s weird, I can’t actually remember what I used to think of
juggling/unicycling/generally fun people before I started getting really into
it. I mean, do other people all think we’re complete freaks or what? It’s really
funny looking at the faces of people who drive past me when I’m out on my uni,
they look at me like I’m some complete weirdo. Not that that bothers me, I’m
proud of being odd, but it just makes me think.
