Kerbs & bumps

It was a lovely morning, and I ended up riding out to and round Ocean Terminal and the harbours, a ride of 5+ miles. I want to learn how to get up kerbs without dismounting – this involves riding, transitioning into hopping, hopping up the kerb, then back to riding. I can do all these bits individually, but only manage them all together about 20% of the time. It’s a great skill to practise – a combination of several moves, and a highly useful outcome at the end.

Riding rough terain is getting way better. The gravel paths and off-road muddy bits on my route are now all easy. In fact, gravel is almost easier than tarmac because the unicycle turns easily on the gravel.
