So how many of you have at some point in your life bought a unicycle, tried to learn to ride it & failed?

Or perhaps, you always wanted to ride one, but don't know where to start?

Having taught 100 's of people since I retired, providing you can come to my home town in South Wales, I'd be happy to give you a free lesson

But how long / how many lessons would it take on average to become a competent unicycle rider?
I have had people who, after instruction, within 20 minutes could pedal for 10 metres, others have taken longer, but the basics I teach means you should be able to progress without further help

Proper set up and some instruction alleviates those problems, I regularly do a 10 mile ride and have done 58 miles in one day

I even managed a ten mile ride on this one - the saddle is 2 metres off the ground - mind you, I was only 62 at the time

Haven’t you just had a hip replacement?

If so I think one lesson should cover it
If I were to inform the consultant who performed said op that I want to ride a unicycle, he would probably have a coronary! Doesn’t mean I don’t fancy a

He doesn’t approve of motorcycles or any impact activities either.

Thought I would take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and to bump the Xmas Auction Threads, every little helps and as Mahatma Gandhi said....

“You may never know what results come of your action, But if you do nothing there will be no result.”

Have a bid folks it’s for a good cause.
