Wow, skipping rope would have NEVER crossed my mind as something to do on a unicycle. Good one!

Lol.

Two things tho. First is that you can just use any old rope (I originally learnt this with a car tow rope lol). Secondly I should think five skips will count as a pass I'm not too horrible and your thighs will be very sore :-P.

Funnily enough I had a bit of trouble with this trick myself this morning. First I haven't practiced it in a while but also since riding the unicycle so much lately my thighs are smaller and it was harder to grip the saddle! Oh well, managed it and won't have to set for a while :-P

You can always join, but since we just started round 2 you begin with an 'O' already

Here's mine.

Ouch! My freaking thighs

Question Thanks

How do you hop with no hands? I'm trying, but when I let go of the seat, my wheel doesn't come off the ground...

Squeeze your seat in between your legs. I also put my feet on my cranks so I could push my feet/ankles inward on the frame, that made a pretty big difference.

Its more awkward than anything else, I probably spent as much time untangling the jump rope from my uni as I spent trying to jump. Once you figure out how to get started on the first jump it's pretty easy.

The rule in the past has always been if you join late, then you can't make up previous rounds. Otherwise, people would just wait until round 4 or 5 to join and just do them all at once. Also, its not fair for people like me who already joined and aren't allowed to do the round 1 trick late.
