Tricks came later. There were no videos to download, and no easy way to find other unicyclists. Fortunately there was a unicycle club in the area and we eventually found that. Then I was presented with the 4 USA skill levels and worked on those. One trick that stood out, backwards wheel walk (not in the 4 levels) took a really long time. So did coasting, but very few people were working on it then, so the few of us were just figurinig it out.

Stupidity gets you 2 of these:
It was the Muni ride during last October's Berkley Juggling Festival in either the Berkley or Oakland hills. The only thing I remember for sure about the location is one of the trails was Chaparral, definitely the most tech bike legal trail I've ever been on (pre or post injury), and possibly overall considering the length of the tech section. It was fun watching everyone riding the super rough section but I had to walk (I still almost fell several times) until the railroad ties spread to ~ 50+ ft apart.
PS. A couple of weeks ago I UPD'd and stepped on a dirt mound putting a lot of stress on my left brace snapping it in half I have some cheep ones I've been using, but I'm not sure I can do stuff like Muni w/ them (they are pretty flexy and uncomfortable). So I may be out of Muni and other aggressive (for me) riding until I can get new ones made, so prob no CMW
Ride everywhere and never just ride anywhere. If you can ride where you are going within a hour, do it, and if you can do a trick 50-75% of the time do it along the way.- Bob Burnquist

Hello John, Presently I'm not really sure of the wheel size. We did have two uni's one larger than the other. Actually one uni wasn't really a Schwinn brand, but looked just like the Schwinn.
Unicycles are flying machines!
24", 28", 32", and 36" KH frame based mutts.
26" inexpensive travel.
