I recently bought a unicycle with the purpose of riding mountain trails. I live in Patagonia where there are plenty of nice mountain trails and I used to do a lot of mountain biking there, but temporally (next 4 months) I am living in a very flat city with no mountains. I can unicycle well in the city on paved flat surfaces, but I would like to get the skills needed to Municycle when back home. The best would be to practice in irregular trails, but even parks around here have all trails paved. So far, from other forums I got these tips I can practice here:
Learn bunny hoping to be able to go over bigger obstacles.
Learn to ride with one pedal to be prepared in case one of your foot looses the pedal (seems to be frequent...).
And that's it. I haven't found any unicycling tutorials focused on mountain unicycling. I am looking for more tips from experienced riders.
What would be the most useful skill needed for mountain unicycling (that could be practised in flat land)?
What is the best riding position? In videos I see most people riding with one hand in the saddle. which one is best (for a right-handed)?
