  • Learning to ride (without knowing how to ride a bike)

    Hi,
    I wondered if it's possible to learn riding a Unicycle without knowing how to ride a bicycle.
    Like, is it something completely different, or should I first learn how to ride a bike before I try to learn how to unicycle?

    thx for your oppinions

    They're totally different skills really, in fact in another thread I've just been saying how it's starting to feel like riding a unicycle has more in common with riding a horse than a bicycle.
    Learning to ride a bike will only really teach you how to shove the pedals around, and I'm fairly sure you can figure that out on your own
    My first fundraising stunt on a unicycle, probably not my last...depends how much it hurts!

      Thank you so much for your reply. Good to know, because I do know how to ride a horse!

        Then remember; weight in the saddle, look where you're going, and don't be too scared of falling!
        Other than that it seems to be a case of just get out there and do it!

          Actually, not having ridden a bike may help you learn. So many things that hindered my learning were bicycle-related. I had to unlearn things that bikes had taught me.
