Stop for a Meal when you’re around town on an EUC
Another way that you can keep your EUC rides more interesting is to stop for a meal when you pass by a place you could be interested in. Part of the idea is to discover new things and then sit down and relax while watching the world go by. Better yet, you may even run into some other EUC riders.
Listen to a Movie, Podcast, or Book
Another great way to enjoy your time on your EUC is to listen to something as you make your way around, through the Bluetooth speaker of the EUC, if your EUC has such feature. It can help time go by quicker and it can also be super entertaining if you choose something that is interesting. You can also learn things as you go if you choose an informative movie, podcast, or book.
However, if you are going around town on your EUC make sure that you are always putting safety first! If you don’t feel confident, then you are gonna need all your senses!
Ride at a Slower Pace when you are around town on your EUC
To truly enjoy and get the absolute best out of your EUC ride, you can slow down. When you ride your EUC at a fast speed, there is an increased risk of injury at higher speeds. While it may sometimes feel safer to go fast on an EUC, it actually isn’t.
However, if you slow your speed down, it will allow you more than enough time to truly take in the scenery around you or notice things that may be worth checking out while you’re there. It will also give you the chance to check out other EUCs or PEVs you may encounter. Overall, it is a great way to take a step back and enjoy life.
The Bottom Line
Electric unicycles are a super fun, unique, and exciting to make your way through life. Getting around town on an EUC is getting easier and easier. If you are thinking of getting one, you definitely should! They are an excellent way to see the world and make your way around.
