Is the Unicyclist group still active?

Paul, I got back into unicycling a couple of years ago.  I'm riding a 26" unicycle.  Do you still ride and is the group still active?  Thanks.Continue

Convenient Time for a Ride? 2 Replies

Long rides are fun, but for those of you who are learning, sometimes my friend and I just roll around in a parking lot to learn tricks or improve our skills generally.  This would be a great time for…Continue

Hello, all!  I've been inactive on this site for some time, but I notice that some new members have joined.  Mike, I've never done trials but I've been wanting to get into it for some time.  I have some basic skills down like hopping, riding backwards, down stairs, and getting into one-footed riding.  I would love to get together and work on skills.  Let me know if you (or anyone else) are interested.

Anyone ride unicycle trials here?

I would like to learn how.

Unicycle Ride has been added to the calendar for Sunday June 26.  RSVP on the event page and indicate if you have extra unicycles that people can try out!

Speaking of new unikes, I am now the proud owner of a 36" unicycle.  That thing can really go!  I went on a 19 mile ride on it a couple of weeks ago down to Hyde Park on the Lakefront path.  It was awesome.  Haven't taken it out lately due to the snow; I'm just not that confident yet.

In other news, I broke the seat on my 20" unicycle the other day... which inspired me to learn the ULTIMATE WHEEL!  Sorry, but that just had to be all caps.

And yes, there will be more rides!  Maybe when there is less snow!

Now is the time to troll the used shops for a nice unike - found a used but OK condition Schwinn 24 inch at Nearly New Bikes yesterday (the only one they had for right now). Go find your Giraffe before someone else does!

Man, that is awesome! I would love to roll through the icy side streets on a unicycle. I did buy some pedals with teeth, and they work great with my boots no matter how wet/icy they are. A studded tire would really make it the ultimate winter machine...

Just noticed again that they make 20 inch, 24 inch studded winter tires. Might pull the studs out when you turn, but what could be more fun than a unicyclist passing you on an icy road as you shovel out your SUV?

Well, it may not surprise you all that the ride tomorrow is canceled due to the snow. Not that unicycles can't be ridden in the snow, but I need to get some non-slip pedals before that happens! Also, I will be out of town for a couple weeks, but I promise, there will be more rides in the future, stay posted!

Hey everybody,
My friend and I are planning on getting together for a ride on Sunday the 5th. We haven't decided where or when exactly, but possibly UIC or Clemente again. I'll post again tomorrow with the details. Feel free to suggest a location/time.
