  1. For me there has been a long development process in my progression of learning to ride an ECU. I’m presently about to pass the 300km mark on my first wheel (9BotE+), and I find myself still acquiring new skills with every ride. My personal experience of learning has been very different from that of many of the boasts I’ve read in forums (1 hour and I was bored of my slow wheel). Granted, I did take those with a grain of salt, armored up and put in the time to learn the wheels. Developing the skills necessary to ride an EUC has been truly rewarding, and now I can’t imagine life without one; I would be a bird without wings. For those learning, I thought I’d put together a list of keystones in my progress. For the old hands among us I curious how your progression differed. First 2.5 hours – Clinging to handrails/walls, holy smokes, is this even possible! Next 1.5 hours – A small window of hope – I started to ride 5 to 10m without a handrail. By 3km – I was able to ride around a soccer pitch, reacting but with little control. By 6m – I was riding a dirt running track, staying in lanes. By 10km – I was able to complete wide purposefully turns (right was easier than left) By 15km – I was riding the quieter streets of the neighborhood. By 20km – I was started doing longer rides – 10km+ on trails/bike paths. By 40km – I started riding busier 40kph streets. Steeper slopes, rough terrain less intimidating. By 90km – Started commuting to work, negotiating cross walks, bike lanes and heavier traffic. By 120km – Traffic awareness greatly increased. Queuing in on sound, looking back and over shoulder. Foot fatigue becomes less of an issue. By 200km – More confident in traffic. Tight turns, stops and takeoffs are becoming second nature. By 300km – Riding has become mostly effortless. It’s now easy to zone out and become too comfortable, perhaps this is the most dangerous phase of the learning curve. Still working on: Good foot placement each time on takeoff, reverse still difficult, balancing on one leg, still not a confident nighttime road rider, takeoff in difficult surface conditions, balancing at a full stop (for stop signs). I felt I had initially outgrown my 9BotE+ at around 80km, though now I’m glad I didn’t upgrade. 220km latter and I’m still learning a lot on my original wheel, largely control and awareness. After many spills and being dropkicked by a dog @ 15 kph the poor little wheel has taken a beating but still runs great! I’ve worn ankle, wrist, knee, elbow guards and full-face helmet from the beginning and have come out relatively unscathed. So much of riding an EUC is building strength and muscle memory. It’s a true satori experience, with dramatic realizations of growth. I find these moments exhilarating. What’s your experience?
