Basically my group scout leader has asked me to learn how to ride it in time for our local summer fete at which I shall be riding around making it looks easy and taking money off people to see if they can ride it for about 10 metres without putting a foot down or falling off Big Grin

I can ride them - fella had one in tel-aviv steering same as yours but also had to pedal backwards to go forwards - had to get from 1 point to another $5 a go, I watched 1 after the other fall off - had a go won $50.  They thought I was a fighter pilot - lol.  I said im just screwed in the head.  

Its not as hard as it looks, good fun though.

Its not as lethal as it looks, I'm finding the hardest thing is the fact that even once you get you head round the whole wrong way steering thing, as a cyclist I naturally lean when I turn the bars, and that's where I'm finding it difficult. That being said, I am getting on with it very well. Time will tell though :p
