I learned to ride forward very slowly, idle and then backwards, within a month or two. In that order. It seemed that had to be the order to me. Then the transition from backwards to forward to backwards became second nature. It was the most productive 2 months yet. I could see progress ever single day. A rewarding great feeling. I chose to not watch videos, since I was doing a lot contrary to what most people told me to do. I did a lot looking down, which most tell you that's a big no no.

I am just starting out and without my hand on a rail at the right height I don't get very far.

Sometimes when I over pedal I find myself going backwards along the wall, almost as good as going forwards.

I can't idle yet, but in my last few training sessions I could stall and switch directions successfully sometimes if the rail is close by.

Hoping for a break in the weather that works with my schedule so I can get in some more practice. Too much heavy rain lately.

Human gyroscope in training.
