Welcome Splodge. What kind of unicycle are you riding? I'm wondering because the first time I attempted to ride on grass I fell flat. When I got my fat tire MUni (Nimbus 24) I could do grass easily. Now that I have some experience under me (3.5 months) I can ride on grass with my original unicycle (20" Torker) but it isn't easy. My favorite rides are hills, paved or dirt. Your progression is very good. You will be going distances before long. Keep it up.

Umm I'm new to unicycling so I don't really know the exact type I have I know its a 20" 'beginner's' unicycle, and the tyre looks quite thin...

EDIT: I've just looked it up on hte website (www.unicycle.com) and apparently its a Dodger.
What does that mean?

it's definitely not the beginner uni I would have picked, but it should do you. Be sure to get a new one once you can ride pretty well though.

That means it's one of Roger's Dodgers.

Hey splodge88,

I'm just starting out and created a blog too! (see signature below)

Here are some instructions for embedding that youtube link into your blog, if you're interested:

Good luck!
