I am an unofficial level 2 rider putting the brass tacks on levels 3 and 4 skills, I’ve never actually been tested.
I have been working on reducing my turning radius all summer.
Today I did something that felt completely different and really changed the way things worked.
I would go into one of my usual choppy turns that looks more like some kind of polygon with rounded corners. Today I concentrated on keeping my pedaling smoother as I lean. While coming out of one of these really choppy tight circles I lessened my lean but kept pedaling smoothly and the unicycle just went around and around and around and around almost on the spot while I pedaled smoothly and slowly with little lean at all.
I did this all afternoon 'til I did a nice UPD/roll. Ummmph! Time to rest. I looked at the blacktop and it was covered with all these great tight curly spirals in the dust from my new found skill.
So was I spinning? Is that what it was? It was really a cool feeling.
