Upcoming Wobble Sightings

Healthy Kids Day at the Butler YMCA is Friday, April 28th from 3:30 - 6:30 pm. This is a free community event that showcases all that the YMCA has available for kids and families. We'll be there, with unicycles, giving brief riding lessons.

Friday nights during the warmer months we participate in "Unicycles are a thing" in Pittsburgh. This event is sponsored by Thick Bikes and is essentially a mobile beginner unicycle event, but all levels of riders are welcome to attend. There are unicycles there for you to try, as well as assistance and instruction, but feel free to bring your own. We meet at the South Shore Riverfront Park, around 6:30 pm (weather permitting).

Little Bits of Progress

36 inch unicycles are popping up all over the area! Four (total) of our members will have one by tomorrow afternoon. Could this be a sign of the Apocalypse or just a stage race coming to town?

Uni-fied Wednesdays at the Skatepark have been going fairly well. We seem to be the only users who feel our heads are worth $30. It seems wearing a helmet isn't very fashionable to most of the multi-wheeled skatepark crowd. Apparently chicks and dudes dig scars and memory loss.

Stage Race updates: We've got a small token of appreciation for participants. You'll find out soon enough. We don't have official hotel deals worked out, but they're in the works. Scoring for the race is an interesting logistical exercise- ideas are getting firmer. We've got the prize package for the winners started. Logistics leave the field for all 3 events to be capped at about 30ish riders. We've got around a dozen or so informally registered as there is no formal registration yet.

One quick note (in case things get too hectic over the next week): Next Wednesday there may not be much of a presence at the skatepark as some of us are committed to wrench for some travelling bicyclists.
