  1. Thought I would set up a new forum for any new or old Fylde Coast riders to arrange meetups. There was a NW forum but it has died a death.
  2. There must be more Local EUC riders here in Lancs?? Where are you all?
  3. Went for a pleasant ride near Hindley Wigan with a fellow EUC rider
  4. Not good news here...... http://www.electricunicycleguide.com/electric-unicycles-and-the-law/
  5. Ahh, that explains a lot!!
  6. Wow, that's insane!! riding on snow!! Did you have studs in the tyre?
  7. Thought it would be good to see how many EUC riders could do the "ride the lights evening" in Blackpool on the 30th of August http://www.blackpool-illuminations.net/Ride-the-Lights.html I rode it last year from Bispham lights to Star Gate and back and didn't see any other EUC riders!! If you can make it, add your name and user name to the list below. Andy 1. Andy (the juggler) 2 3
  8. so i guess no one want to join me then?
  9. Why would you face plant? surely the tilt back and warning sounds would just occur at a lower speed!!
  10. What a good idea, but hey, your thinking logically !!! The government in the UK don't!!!
  11. Found some other EUC riders and met up to ride round Southport lake and pier (Lancs UK)
  12. I wish I was only 50! I'm actually 63 and thought Jonathan was about 30 something. Just had the last ride of 2016 and clocked up 529 miles since buying my Ninebot in August. I hope all my fellow EUC riders have a great new year.
  13. This is my YouTube channel. I have lots of other interests as well. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTC-l16ajgmvRZWyyJAA5Gw
  14. Hi Jonathon, I think one of the most important factors in being able to learn more skills is AGE !! You have amazing skills but are probably 30 years younger than me !
  15. I really enjoy people asking me questions about my Ninebot, and love the comments by youngsters such as:- Oh my god what is that? Wow, that's cool Its a Segway! Where did you get it? How much was it? Can I have a go? We pioneer EUC riders must make a good impression with the general public in the hope that eventually we are legally allowed to ride them here in the UK!
  16. Since buying my Ninebot EUC 3 months ago I have had an unbelievable amount of fun riding it an would so much like to take it on holiday with me ( the wife left a long time ago LOL). However all the info re airlines not allowing them on board seems to indicate that it is not possible. Does any one know how it would be possible to take one away on holiday abroad?
  17. A new study is being undertaken by the Belgian Government regarding the use of electric powered vehicles. We all need to complete the survey to show how popular electric modes of transport are becoming. Hopefully the governments in all countries will eventually allow the use of these vehicles as they did with the internal combustion engine following the demise of the horse and cart! http://www.brsi.be/en/brsi/new-urban-mobility-study/behavior
  18. Thanks to all fellow EUC riders for taking the time to do the survey. I'm sure we have a long way to go before we are legally allowed to ride on the road or pavement but we have to start somewhere!
  19. I havn't seen anyone riding EUC's in the Canaries let alone renting ones! Best I saw was Segway tours but you can't hire them.
  20. It does seem to be a big problem as the links seem to indicate. I guess I'll have to do cruising instead of flying!!
  21. After trying to see how tight a turn I could do I realised that the limitation was the pedal height. So as I had previously used some sticky backed felt pads to protect the underside of the pedals from damage, I decided to try putting some pieces between the pedal and the mounting point where it hinges. The result is that the pedals are now slightly higher off the ground and I am now able to turn even tighter. See pics attached.

  23. Hi, I can do fast twisting rotations as I used to ride a manual unicycle but I can't seem to do the tight moving turns I have seen on many YouTube videos
