Yesterday I went riding on the beach. We've got lots of sweet rocks,
there, it was great. But I was a little bit tired, having ridden for
over two hours already. Still, I did some sweet lines.

I like natural trials, because it allows far less correction hops than
urban and you need to imagine your route in advance. It's really
interesting. But a bit scary.

I'll do it again next time I ride.

If somebody tells you your tricks are gay, ask them if they are an
expert in gay trickery.

I did natural trials for about 45 minutes on the rocks today. It was
good... What I find is when you "try" to do a line you fall off
somewhere in the middle. When you say "I'm gonna jump on that, go the
whole way, jump off there" you get it first try(and do it quickly with
minimum pre-hops). It's all in the mind, you know.

I do a little bit of trials on my KH24 and hope to get better and get a
20" trials cycle. I'm not sure why I picked street other than my
inability to learn freestyle and make it look good and the fact that
distance unicycling gets a bit boring after the first couple thousand
miles

Thats a nice frame you have there.
