I can unicycle. (just)

I just thought I would like everybody to know that I’ve cracked it,
unicycling that is. At the grand old age of 41 (29 in hex looks better) I
managed to go about 40 yards with myself mostly in control. I first
attempted unicycling about 17 years ago, but there was none of the
juggling/unicycling workshops that exist today, there was no Internet
either with Unicycling sites etc., so I had no one to tell me what I was
doing wrong (everything it now seems). So I sold the Uni I had found in a
bike shop and forgot about it (almost). I got into juggling a couple of
years ago, balls, rings, clubs, torches (you know the slippery slope) and
of course I saw uni’s again, so I saved up and bought a nice red DM
Ringmaster and three weeks ago at the workshop I go to in Wokingham, I had
my first go at it again, taking note of all the good advice available to
me. So after three weeks…

    Wow,..! I got some great bruises on my inner thighs and I must have
    sweated of pounds but I've done it.8-) :-) :-)

 So you are never to old to learn, OK I do not suppose I will ever be a
 great unicyclist but who cares, next week I'll try for more steering and
 maybe free mounting.

Is that the group that meets at the Youth and Community centre on Sunday
evenings? I keep meaning to go along. I’ve got an anonymous unicycle, and I can
do 1 and a half revolutions so far.

Can anyone just turn up? What are the times?
