What can I say.
I just took delivery of the Nimbus 2 from Unicycles.com, why do I do these things? It's a complicated answer and it would only draw a round of head shakes and eye-rolling. Suffice to say I have a goal in mind and I'm counting on being able to ride several miles on this bad boy before the end of the year.
I've never been on a unicycle up until 15mins ago. It's hard. Really hard.
Did I mention hard.
But mark my words, several miles by the end of the year. Anyone else up for the challenge?
Edit, to my post of yesterday. The boys and I just got back in the house, they were riding their bikes and I was trying to get a few inches further on the unicycle. Well I managed to get approx four complete pedal revolutions before falling off. Not too bad but that took me approx 100 attempts. Next goal is five pedal revolutions. ;-)
I feel like I'm in unicycle kindergarten, a total newbie, what a fun challenge this thing is. Actually it's frustratingly fun, I almost don't want to get the hang of it too fast as it's making me tweak some of my theories/protocols on the "starting from zero" athletic learning model.
Here's an iPhone image, too bad you can't see the big welt on my right shin where I slammed it with an overly aggressive out-of-control pedal stroke. Lesson learned, hahaha.
