Today I rode 750 pedal strokes (around 725 metres) without a dismount on my 24" ultimate wheel. I think that's my longest single ride.

Starting to get the spin and pirouettes down. Local gym lets me use their aerobics floor to practice when empty. What a strange sensation it is. Kinda easy to do on a smooth floor and high pressure tire. Pavement requires much more action to get going. Still working that out.

Can only spin counterclockwise at the moment. It is great fun. I'll post some video when I feel it is net worthy.

New duration record: 1h12:22 without dismount whilst accompanying my wife while jogging. Had to dismount at a road construction site because of traffic. No sore crotch due to advices on this thread earlier on.

An hour or more without a dismount, UP or otherwise,is always an achievement. You can be 58 minutes in and make a silly mistake or meet an idiot. What size wheel and cranks was it on?

I used to train measuring distance covered in a timed hour. At the moment I'm working towards 50 km (just over 30miles) without a dismount on my ungeared 36 which I expect to take around 3 hours. I will be so disappointed if someone steps in front of me at 49 km. My longest ever without a dismount was 27 miles in something like 2 h 30 m, but I was younger then.

I've no idea what my longest non-dismount ride is! :O Probably when I did Manchester to Blackpool, there were a few chunks of an hour or more. My usual unicycling haunts just don't allow for long continuous riding because of all the traffic lights, stupid barriers in bike lanes, and ludicrously large main roads to cross.

I did it on a standard KH20 setup. Don稚 know the crank length without looking it up. it seems to fit me well, though.

I had a first-timer on my trip today (KH27.5), when I did a hopping turn-around because of a too-late choice of direction. I had never even tried this outside of technical training sessions.
