You Will Need
- Elbow and knee pads
- Wall or railing
Put on your helmet and pads. You can expect to fall down a lot at first.
Put one pedal at its lowest position and put your foot on the pedal. Hold onto a wall or railing and pull your body up and onto the seat.
Practice balancing while holding onto a wall or railing by rocking the unicycle back and forth in half-pedal turns.
Pedal forward using the wall or railing as a guide. When you get going, let go and hold your arms out for balance.
If you start to fall, step off the unicycle and let it fall down.
Keep practicing until you get comfortable. Pedal faster to catch up with the wheel when it gets out in front, and pedal slower when it falls behind.
