new ideas

I am board with the same old things that I do on my unicycle. I need to expand my horizon. Who out there has some cool new ideas to try on a unicycle?

Well new ideas are always hard.
I always liked to do this one:

do a side ride,
move your seat backward,
jump sideways to the other side,
bring back seat (and swop hands),
continue side-ride with your other leg.

Nah, that one is way too easy. I like to coast seat-in-front, then take my feet off of the frame and do a handstand on the seat. Then push off and do a half flip and land back on the seat.

Check this out for some ideas:

I thought of one a while ago that I have no hope of doing. You hold the seat out in front and pace backwards on top of the tyre standing up. It's just too difficult to turn. I'm sure lots of people could do it though.

I think you should try a unicycle rodeo. Ride your uni around and try to lasso some local dogs, cats, or kids. I think it would be a lot of fun.

If you'll settle for "old" ideas you should have a look at the standard skill list too
http://unicycling.org/iuf/rulebook/i...s/7sslist.html

If that's not enough to keep you occupied, someone on the German forum posted a description of a really cool move he has added to his repertoire.

It's a transition from coasting or gliding to dragging the seat.
1) Coast/Glide
2) Jump off the uni, letting the seat drop
3) Land on the pedals and continue.


Good luck
Morten
