Popular Post Mantraguy Posted September 14, 2022 Popular Post Share Posted September 14, 2022 When each of us learned to ride an UEC, most of us found we had a fairly obvious preference as to which foot would start on the pedal and which would push off from the ground. What I want to know is, did you stick with that preference or did you teach yourself to start from either foot? For example, I start with my left foot on the pedal and my right foot on the ground. If I try to switch that, I barely have the ability to keep the unicycle upright; pivoting around is very difficult, and there's no way I can start push off with my left foot, with my right on the pedal. To that end, if I find myself riding a technical section very slowly (or up a steep hill etc.) and have to stop quickly, I have to put my right foot down - if I'm falling over to the left, it's a very clumsy dismount if I remain upright at all. I'm going to try to learn the other way, but thought I'd ask how many others are able to do this comfortably. Side note: I've found that, after almost 10,000 miles and 2 years of riding, I really don't have many skills other than the absolute basics of riding. There aren't many other EUCs here so I ride exclusively solo, and tend to do long rides rather than spend time improving my skills. I've decided to change that. We'll see if it actually happens. ;-) 7 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
