  • I am approaching 70, and enjoy unicycling very much. I would like to share my experiences and hear from others. – George Simpson Dec 15 '14 at 19:43

  • Sorry you feel that way Batman; please reconsider. Let's have a little fun! – George Simpson Dec 15 '14 at 20:00
  • sorry @user2332668 but I agree with Batman. You're trying to start a debate here and that's not a good fit for for this particular site. – PeteH Dec 15 '14 at 20:16

Here are a couple of insights about getting started, that might be helpful. 1. Use walking sticks for a few weeks or months - you will know when to throw them away. 2. Get good body armour - I particularly recommend Kris Holme gloves. You will also need knee and elbow pads, and a good helmet.


Perhaps you need inspiration to get started. Check out this Kris Home video:
