For beginners learning how to ride an electric unicycle is not much harder than learning to ride a bicycle, both technically and mentally. From a technical perspective, in a broad sense, both require the riders to learn to get on and off, start and stop, maintain sideway balance, accelerate, decelerate and glide. You’re quite literally getting on a wheel with pedals attached to the side and – nothing else. There’s no seat and no handle, which means staying on board is entirely up to you.

2. First Ride on One-Wheel Electric Unicycle
For how to ride an electric unicycle must follow these steps for riding
- One Foot Practice is very necessary for beginners instead go directly with two feet first try with one foot, keep your foot on the pedal of your unicycle and try to stand on it also try self-balancing the electric unicycle with your body weight. Put some weight on the pedal and try to cover the distance with one foot. This is quite difficult but practicing this will help you greatly to balance with two feet
- Two Feet Practice is easier than one-foot practice because you will feel more comfortable during two feet but still it is not easy to travel some meters because this needs more practice and skills. Practice makes a man perfect so as you practice your skills and confidence will increase gradually. Self-balancing and stabilizing will be your major skills while riding on the unicycle. Now hold someone and start practicing on two wheels.
Riding Time will come soon after practice, but make sure you have done your one-foot and two feet practice successfully. If you haven’t practiced so go back and practice more for your first successful riding. Now after a lot of practice, you are able to know how to start and stop accelerate and decelerate your one-wheel electric unicycle. Keep in your mind that an electric unicycle uses gyroscopes to maintain balance, it is highly responsive and obedient. To start or accelerate the electric unicycle, press the toes into the front of the pedals.
Keep both knees are kept slightly bent to keep your body more relaxed and in sync with the wheel. To decelerate or stop, simply lean backward as you are sitting on the chair. If you want to change direction while riding on your one-wheel electric unicycle simply shift your body weight from one side to another or twist your body. An electric unicycle (often initialized as EUC) is a self-balancing personal transporter with a single wheel. The rider controls speed by leaning forwards or backward and steers by twisting or tilting the unit side to side.
