A visit to Primrose Hill and Regents Park

Today we headed out to visit Primrose Hill and Regents Park in London. Arriving into London Bridge we took the Northern Line to Chalk Farm before walking up to Primrose Hill and enjoying some lunch at the lookout which provides a great view over central London. We then made our way down to Regents park where we visited some of the play areas and formal gardens.

A visit to the Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta

Today we went to watch some of the beautiful tall ships arriving for the Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta at Woolwich Arsenal – it’s always a pleasure to see so many large sailboats moored up together. We also took another walk under the Thames using the Woolwich foot tunnel.

A visit to Brockwell Park

Today we headed out to visit Brockwell Park in South London. This park is well maintained and has some lovely views towards central London. There is a BMX track and a very popular children’s play area.

Electric Unicycling Tricks – Crossover Returning Boomerang

Just a bit of electric unicycling fun from this morning’s practice session – an extension of the “returning boomerang” – where the rider takes the opposite path to the wheel with both the wheel and the rider returning to the start point at the same time. This tick could potentially be jazzed up by tumbling (somersaulting) around the circle, or perhaps performing it around something more interesting than a set of cones!

Electric Unicycling Trick Practice Sessions – Boxes and Slopes

Another short film from some recent practice sessions focusing on boxes and slopes.

Bring along baby cinema @ Stanley Halls

Today we went to watch the original version of “Miracle on 34th Street” at the “bring along baby” event at Stanley Halls. The bring along baby session takes place on the first Wednesday each month and is run by Stanley’s film club.

Electric Unicycling EUC Tricks and Filming Techniques

Just a short video of trying out some new trick filming ideas/techniques including:

Using a motorised slider rail (horizontal & vertical). This works really well for filming tricks as the movement of the camera is more pleasing to watch than static “CCTV” footage. Filmed during a lunchtime session, the building in the background is the Shard.

3 meter selfie pole – when spinning around fast it generates loads of wind resistance and makes a crazy noise.

I have also been trying some tricks in my Tron costume – I got buzzed by the met police helicopter last night which diverted its flight path to have a look 🙂

Parliament Hill on Hampstead Heath

Following on from a meeting at The Royal Free Hospital, I spent my lunch hour wheeling up Parliament Hill to enjoy the view over London. The conditions were not great for photography (I didn’t even have my camera) but was still well worth the visit!

Electric Unicycling Tricks – Chaining Practice @ Crystal Palace

A quick practice session video (on a rare break from the endless nappies and sleepless nights that come with a new baby)  – I have been working on chaining tricks together. Unfortunately this has a tendency to overheat the wheel, but is still great fun! Filmed in Crystal Palace Park in South London which will shortly have a new skate facility.

Electric Unicycling Tricks Session @ Bromley Skatepark

The week’s video comes from Bromley skate park in South London.
In the last week I have worked to get my 180 shove-it consistency to greater than 80% so decided to use this early morning visit to try and take the trick to the slopes. The ramps at this facility have a “skate-lite” surface which are rather slippery when using an EUC, although still great fun.
