I searched and read about how old people are that still ride unicycle, but only saw two comments about learning after age 60.
So, just curious how old you were when you learned to ride a unicycle if over 60.
How long did it take to ride more than just 1 or 2 revolutions?
How did you practice and/or what did you do to learn?
I read the John Foss either knew or helped a man to ride at the age of 92. That’s amazing.
fwiw- I first learned when I was about 53…thereabouts.
I learned by mounting and sitting on unicycle while in doorway. Then did the same with a post by my sidewalk. About a month later, I did two or three revolutions between a couple of posts. Gradually got to ride the length of sidewalk to the curb, about 40 feet or so.
Some time later (forget how long), it dawned on me that maybe I could hold on side of my car, mount the unicycle and start riding. That took a week or so, but finally started riding up to about 200’. After maybe a month, I got to where I could ride the length of the street, which was just a connector road between two parallel roads, about 300 yards, but I couldn’t ride over bumps, cracks, dips in the road, or I would UPD.
Then I had to put everything away after surgery and moving. Just assembled the 20" and 24" Toker unicycles so that I can learn again/relearn.
