The Schwinn unicycle offers hours and hours of entertainment. It doesn’t matter what age you are as long as you’re willing to have fun. This one wheeled mechanism takes a little bit of willingness to learn, but once you get the process down you’ll be wheeling around your neighborhood in style.
There are many steps in learning how to ride this device. All you need to do is have the urge to ride one.
Here are some of the steps in the process:
• Balance – At first, the mechanism may look quite difficult to ride; after all it only has one wheel and no handle bars. Just remember how hard it was to ride a bicycle when you were a child. Getting your balance down is something that most people struggle with. Learn how to stand on one foot for a few seconds and repeat this process over until you get it down. Once you get your balance, then you’re ready for the next step.
• Getting on – Getting on the mechanism may take a couple of tries before learning to master it. Once you get on it you need to get it in motion because that’s the only way it will remain upright. So in order to get on it you’re going to have to start manually wheeling it. When you’re ready you can jump up on the seat. Just be careful when you do because if you don’t know how to peddle it can throw you off of it rather quickly.
• Peddling – Okay, you have gotten the balance and getting onto the seat steps down. Now you’re ready to start learning how to peddle. Once the device is in motion and you are firmly on the seat start to peddle. This is as easy as peddling a bicycle. Move your feet in a clockwise motion and continue doing so. This will cause the device to go. The unicycle is equipped to go forward and backward, but you’re going to have to master going forward before anything else.
• Motion – Once you are peddling the unit, keep it going. This will cause the device to ride just like a bike. Don’t get discouraged at first because you will not be able to ride longer than a minute or so. Just keep moving; that’s all you’ll have to keep in mind.
The Schwinn unicycle can be loads of fun for the entire family. You can buy these anywhere bicycles are sold. But in order to learn how to ride one of these you are going to have to master a few simple steps. After you have done so you will be flying around the neighborhood in style. You’ll amaze all of your family and friends. Just remember to always wear a helmet for safety.
