Upcoming Wobble Sightings

We're indoors in the Winter at the Butler YMCA on Saturdays from 4 - 6pm (Except last Saturday of the month)We're outdoors in the other seasons (well, sometimes in Winter as well too).

Monday, March 4, 2024

 We'll be meeting at the Butler YMCA through mid April 2024. We meet on Saturdays from 4 pm - 6 pm. All levels of riders, from never tried to World Champion, are welcome to attend. All ages, too. Don't have a unicycle? We've got you covered. Just wear comfortable shoes (that cover your toes, no sandals or flip-flops) and bring a helmet.

You need not be a YMCA member, but you will need to show ID and register. Follow this link to pre-register. Don't worry if you have problems registering, we can help you register when you arrive. There will also be someone at the front desk to assist you.

Also, UNICON - the unicycling world championships are coming in July! We'll be there. Will you? This year they'll be held in Minnesota - no passport required! Click here for more information.

New Season!

 We’re returning for another round of FREE unicycling at the Butler Y on Saturdays from 4-6pm starting November 12th. You will need to register at the front desk upon first visit, but you do not need to be a Y member to attend the sessions. 

Bring your own uni and helmet if you have them. If not, we have loaners. 

New this year is we will be off the LAST Saturday of each month. This still allows weeks in a row for practice while giving volunteers a bit of time off throughout the winter to go play outside. 

Hope this is you year to celebrate the fun of one!

That’s a Wrap!


Thanks for making the 2021-2022 indoor winter season at the Y great!

We’ll be back indoors at the Y late next fall.

Until then we’ll be outdoors. If you are looking for unicycling opportunities to learn, check back here and we’ll keep you up to speed. 

Also, the national unicycle convention will be June 26-July 2 in the Cleveland, OH area. Check out www.unicyclenationals.com

 Hey folks, we’re back. 

We will resume FREE indoor sessions at the Butler Y starting Saturday, December 4th, 2021. What this means is we will teach you to ride, or you’re welcome to come and ride with others. 

We do have a slight time change; we will ride 4-6pm (the Y closes at 6:30). 

The Y is closed on December 25th and January 1, so we won’t be in those days. Otherwise, we’ll be there Saturdays through March (unless there’s an emergency- then we’ll post here).

As usual, you will need to fill out a waiver, but the cost is still $0. Bring your unicycle (with plastic pedals) and a helmet. If you don’t have either, or both, of those we still have you covered with loaners. You really should get at least your own helmet though. 

We will be following COVID-19 protocols. As of today the notice at the Y says that masks are optional. Please consider others when you make your decision. 

We hope to see you soon.

On Hold

I apologize for being a bit late on this notice:

There will be no unicycling at the Butler YMCA through at least March 29th. The Y is closed through then.

Normally our last indoor session is the last week of March. Since we ended so abruptly we are exploring the option of having an end of season session once things settle a bit.

We will keep you posted.

For now, find a place inside or outside to practice your skills. Do it a safe distance from those outside your normal quarantine group.

If you're looking for some skill development ideas, check out our friend Eli Brill's YouTube Channel. He's an advanced rider that has done a great job with making tutorials to advance the sport.

Stay safe.

Next Saturday, December 7th, marks the start of our 11th year of FREE unicycling at the Butler Y!

As usual, we’re there 4:30-6:30pm. Bring your own helmet and uni if you have them, but if you don’t - we’ve got you covered. We love having new folks experience the fun of one, so you should plan to be there Saturday!

We’ll be there riding unis indoors at the Y every Saturday until the end of March 2020 with the exception of February 22nd. We’ll be at Wood Fest at The Wheel Mill that day.

Again, the Y keeps unicycling totally free. You don’t even need to be a member! You will need to sign a general waiver though.

Month of Mud!

It's that time of year again.

Except, this time it's the 30th Anniversary of the Month of Mud!

Join us in the celebration with some uni racing! The five race series starts this Sunday at Moraine State Park in Prospect, PA and concludes with Brady’s rum on Sunday, October 27th.

AND, as a special ONE TIME offer, you can race Cyclocross at North Park on October 13th (on a uni of course) FOR FREE!

All you need to do is be a current member of the Unicycling Society of America, pre-register (in the unicycle class of course) for the race, and race on race day. After the race is over, see Dave and he will refund your entry fee. He will be one of the ones definitely in costume.

To prove you're a member, you'll need your USA membership number.

Dave's banking on this is going to be quite the party this year so pack a costume to race in. If it gets really crazy and he needs to refund a bunch of entries, he may lose his shirt. No worries, he already lost a wheel (and maybe his mind) anyways.

One thing is certain to happen- you'll have a blast. CX is super fun on a unicycle.

Hope to see you there.
