You could try practicing against a wall, and just ditching the cycle
entirely if you are past the point of no return (please forgive the
cliche) in any direction. I can freemount to the wheel and start
walking, and I learned next to something (walls, sheds,
trucks/whatever). You could also get some shin guards that have padding
in the back, but I've never used pads. Flexible shoes are good, and
enough grip to not slip off of the wheel is also helpful. I walk in
converse, which don't have grip.

I tried not to learn against some thing cause then you learn to lean to
one side or some thing....when your feet start to slide down just throw
your feet out to the side so the uni lands under you or just lean off
the side. Try going as slow as you can when learning...thats what i did
and now i can go forever. (not really but close to it) When you start
to lean forward just don't wall the wheel and lean back


Hope that helps!
