Yes.

My problem is doing it on the ground!

I went to the library here in Cedar Rapids IA yesterday and found a copy of The
Unicycle Book on the shelf. Just wanted to add that there is a picture of a 6
year old girl hula hooping while riding a unicycle.

I can imagine Dennis’ head exploding from unicycle overload. Wood One Wheelers
is a huge group to have one’s first parade with!

I don’t know if Matt ever got answered about the hula hoop thing. Yes, we had
several girls in my old club, the Redford Township Unicycle Club, who did hula
hoops while riding. I imagine boys could do it too. As for me, doing on the
ground would be enough . . .

For a picture (sorry, no GIF’s), turn to page 5 in the Oct. 1983 issue of ON ONE
WHEEL (from the USA Inc.) to see the Amazing Larry Vee riding a unicycle, while
hula hooping, while spinning juggling rings on both wrists, while juggling three
balls. Don’t try this at home.
