mtbr.com Review – Mountain and Trials Unicycling by KH

Take a read of this kind review of Kris Holm’s Mountain and Trials Unicycling on mtbr.com. I’d argue that Kris’s hard work has added another significant layer of dignity to the sport – and hopefully entice a few more folks to jump in the saddle.

One takeaway from “Mountain and Trials Unicycling” is some insight into the mentality of people who ride unicycles. At the risk of generalizing it seems that unicyclists are persistent, patient people who like simplicity and can do more with less. Another takeaway (and eye-opener) was the extent of trails and terrain in which you could ride unicycles ranging from smooth rides of the Colorado Trail from technical features of Vancouver’s North Shore. The other message is that if bike riders think they know what mountain unicycling is all about and all they’ve seen is videos, they should think again.  For the first time this book shows what the sport is really all about, in context, as the sport’s participants see it.  What’s remarkable is really how unremarkable it is – a sport much smaller than biking but that spans the same demographic range and nearly the same diversity of riding styles. – mtbr.com
