    Purchased! I also noticed that yesterday (i.e. 24th) was his birthday. Happy birthday, Erlend.

    But all that aside, he seems like a really nice guy and is a keen unicyclist, so that is what is most important. UniMyra isn't a bad guy either!

    I was listening to a Norwegian podcast today - "Lørdagsrådet", the "Saturday Advice Council" where listeners write in with their problems, and they semi-seriously discuss what to do - and the host said:
    I'll start off this Lørdagsrådet problem the way Erlend Loe starts "Doppler": "my father is dead."
    It probably wouldn't have registered if I hadn't just seen this picture! Anyway it gives us non-Norwegians some idea of how well known his books are there.

    Here is a picture shamelessly stolen from UniMyra's Instagram account

    Strangest thing was encountering another, unknown unicyclist out of the blue coming in the opposite direction. In hindsight, we probably should have gotten him to pose with us as well.

    For sure the "not riding on the on the shoulder of the track" (right side of image) did me no good.

    My mind was definitely not wandering as this is the challenging last ramp up to the junction you see in the 2nd image.
    Its a the end of a dirt/gravel track that goes slightly uphill, the final bit is steepest and has the biggest chunks of gravel.
    It takes some effort to ride onto and you need to tackle it at decent speed.

    As I was cranking hard, while pulling up on the saddle, I suddenly just got thrown off, I think a combination of bouncing and wheel spin.

    Gravel this coarse is a very tricky surface to ride on.

    I do UPD when bouncing too much (even when anticipated) and I know about the wandering mind.

    Because of riding these specific tracks I'm getting better at dealing with sideways slipping.
    What seems to work for me:
    - a good pull up on the saddle handle (keeps the feet in place)
    - keep speeding


    In the last Image I'm looking back after an UPD (not fall) due to prolonged bouncing about

    Looking back after my first fall since my knee surgery last December
    Some nasty gravel there. Hurrah for wrist guard and KH percussion. Fell onto wrists and knee and rolled onto my backback.
    No harm done apart from a little bruise between elbow and wrist.
    So why did you UPD there?
    > Because there are too many bumps and the wheel starts bouncing, or
    > because for a long while you were doing great and your mind started wandering and oops there was an unforeseen bump, or
    > your wheel slid sideways when riding on a bigger rock?

    (I UPD in all those cases ^_^)

    I'm mostly lurking, so this is my first post. However I figured I have to post something since this thread didn't get any updates today. Guess that's because in a lot of countries people aren't even allowed out of the house. We have to keep groups below 5 people and stick to 2m distance but we can still leave the house to go unicycling. I went in the morning in the hope to meet fewer people - sometimes it's hard to keep the 2m distance on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

    Unicycling
