The skill level system works well for me because it gives me some goals to work
toward. I do like your idea, though, for making a list of fun things to try, and
I would gladly put it in the FAQ.

To get the list started, I will include your items, and add two of my own.
Everyone should feel free to add to it.

Fun things to try with your unicycle:

Pick items up off the ground. Free mount a giraffe unicycle. Carry people on
your shoulders while you ride. Commute to work or school. Take your dog(s)
for a run.
