How to Free Mount Your Unicycle

Can you ride your unicycle successfully yet? Then it's time you learn how to free mount.

Or maybe you want to learn how to mount before riding? Sure! Many people do that. Anyways, here we go...

What exactly is mounting? It could be defined as:

"Getting on your unicycle without any support"

Mounting might look difficult, but to tell you the truth, it's not. Just like other things, it takes only practice to master. Getting on your unicycle without any support is amazing just in itself. Add riding to that, and people will be in awe!

When you are learning how to mount, you might want to use safety gear to prevent injury. This is because it isn't rare to miss the pedal when mounting and having the pedal hit you in your shin - not good.

Important Tips:

  • Practice, practice, practice! That's the best thing you can do.

  • Don't get discouraged because you can't do it at first. Things take time.
Happy mounting!
