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).

Yes, We're Here!



First up, the schedule: we'll be at The Wheel Mill tonight and every Friday night (unless the weather gets too dicey to make the drive) from 7pm to close.  You are welcome to start earlier as unicycles are welcome when the doors are open.  If you only have one uni, you may also want to note that we have loaners available for FREE while you're there.  Ask at the desk.  There are two Trials unis and two 24" mUnis in stock at all times.

As far as the Butler YMCA time goes on Saturdays- we'll be there every Saturday through at least early April from 4:30-6:30pm.  It's free to ride.  A waiver needs signed and a helmet needs worn.  We have extra loaner unis there too.

That brings us to the next point: the Y time has been extremely popular the last few weeks- so much so that we've had almost all of our dozen loaner unis in use!  That's AWESOME!  However, please be patient with us as sometimes we have to share the loaner unis.  We're so thankful that this has gone incredibly smoothly this year and everyone has been understanding of the situation.  With that being said, we're guessing that a few of those who have been borrowing have moved to owning unis over this holiday season.  Excellent!  We need to remind you that unis being ridden inside the YMCA must have plastic pedals (on the ends) and plastic guards on the seat to protect the floor.  Most unicycles come this way so it's not usually an issue, but if you have a knobby tired mUni or trials uni, it may be.

Remember: tomorrow is the last chance to ride with us in 2013 at the YMCA!  The first weekend of the New Year we go out to dinner after the YMCA session- so plan accordingly.
