Unicycled yesterday and to my surprise, found some snow (although a measly amount) as I reached higher altitudes.





Not sure how the TA tyre would cope in ice, tempted to find out...



-------

Now can someone show me some proper amounts of snow, just to make me jealous?

Rode in the snow on Monday, but must say it was still very hard with the hatchet, especially those places where peeps and dogs walked and half of it had frozen to ice again. Very tiring.

Edison NJ

We had a one day snow storm in NJ and tried snow/icy condition as a newbie (Nimbus 20 trail,137 mm crank) at a small lake, Edison NJ .A bird photographer was kind and took a DSLR photo and sent to me
I tried snow & stuck (couldn't free mount) so moved to a wet part to freemount.

That's a heck of a photo! Very cool.

I always enjoy the challenge of unicycling in the snow and I think it's great for skill building. Every time out has been very different and in some conditions it wasn't possible to really go anywhere, especially when the snow was rutted and re-frozen, but it's fun trying.

I suppose it is a bit like riding in the grass, where the uni also sinks into the ground more and you can't see any pits or bumps. I could focus more on that, but it is quite heavy.

Right, like that but many times over for crusty rutted snow like you had.

I'd suggest two things: Deflate your tire way way down, and forget about actually getting anywhere! Judging from your photo, I think I've been out in worse than that even though I'm pretty far south. And I couldn't ride very far in it either! It was a challenge and good exercise and fun for a while just seeing what little I could do on it.

We can ride through snow all we want whenever and with lots of pleasure but ice has proven to be a big no-no! If the otherwise dry road looks all sparkly with freezing the fall will almost surely happen a couple of seconds before realizing hmm, should have stayed at home and not get hurt badly on at least one side of this fragile body.. After getting up all sore after a likewhise disaster, it occured to me that walking on this kind of surface is even more impossible than riding it! Anyways, please be very careful out there y’all and if it may help somewhat to overcome the blues: spring is only, errrm, more or less 95 days away

Now I finally have an action pic of me where I don't just ride, but I float in the air. It is just magic.



I also had my sis make a video where I ride the trials and do some hopping and in the end managed to balance a bit longer without pogostick hops.

That's even more fun when you do it as frames of a movie. Back in the day, my brother had a Super 8 movie camera with an animation/single frame feature. He did a movie of me hopping and clicking the frame at the top of each hop. A flying unicycle! Some day I should get that old footage converted into something web-friendly. Then it would be my "latest ride from 1981".
