I’m thinking of placing an ad in a few local papers offering Unicycling lessons, or maybe even a group “clinic” mfor beginners! This might be a fun way to introduce our sport to more people, many who may have already thought about learning, but didn’t have enough info or know how to get started.
Part of the reason would also be to get some new riders in my area as there is virtually nobody else but me in the local area! And since I have several unis I could use some of them as “loaners”, and I know of at least one LBS that sells the torker lx and stocks it on a regular basis, so I’m thinking there’s got to be some people locally that are at least trying to learn that I don’t know about.
Just remember that most people your age are getting around using a walker. Seriously, your idea sounds good. I’ve been thinking about doing something like that where I live. I have plenty of unused unicycles in my collection available to the noob. I’ll be watching to see how you make out.
I’d talk to the bike shop to help you promote a demo there. Put up some simple props and demonstrate the various forms of uni (all stuff w/ full pads and little risk of a UPD - a bigish one could scare off newcomers)
