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).

The Fast and Slow of it all

June 11th Autism Benefit at Mazzanti's:



Isaac makes it look easy.



Rick has only been riding since last winter! He's be become quite the climber and uses his uni a lot.

Yes, we were allowed to ride around the car show!

June 18th Fat Tire Challenge in Sigel (earlier I mistakenly said Brookville):



We had 6 in the Uni Class (an off road record for at least Western PA!). In the pic are: Claude, Isaac, Andy, Connor, Dave, and Buzz. 7.78 mi of good racing times. Look for a race writeup (including some uni info) in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette this coming Saturday (the 25th). Thanks Shannon in advance for the article!

You might not recognize Claude, Connor, or Buzz. They aren't from around here. Claude made the trip from Germantown, MD; Connor from near Erie, PA; and Buzz from Rochester, NY. Good times.

An especially huge THANK YOU goes out to Michael and Mindy White for being the race organizers who were completely willing to not only accept, but embrace the concept of MUnis at the race. Now they just need to learn to ride a uni...

On the horizon: more goodness.

July 4th we'll be joining Chas from Pro Bikes for the Monroeville 4th of July Parade. Also joining us will be a bunch of kids on bikes. Human Power!

July 9th we'll be in Emlenton for a parade. The parade is at 6pm and Emlenton is a bit far to ride a uni to and make it home before dark so we'll carpool. Meet at Darn Yarn Needles and Thread (371 N Main St. in Butler) at 4:15 if you want in. We need to be there by 5pm. If you're meeting us in Emlenton, we'll be at the Post Office.

July 23-30th some of us will be at the annual North American Unicycling Convention and Championships in Madison, WI (this year). Lisa, Dave, and Isaac are competitors this year.
