Is there a club in London UK for unicycling?

I've seen some links online but there are all dead.

Anyone know where they are hiding?

Thanks

JJ

Hi there,

There are a few riders scattered round London, but no club as such.

Lunis play unicycle hockey every thursday, which is wicked fun and you
should totally come to it. Hockey is pretty much the most fun way to get
good basic riding skills really quickly. It's also a good place to meet
other riders.

Personally I don't ride inside except for hockey, so I've never been
that fussed about the lack of anywhere indoor to ride. If you really
want to ride indoors, there's juggling clubs and spinning clubs in
various places, but they tend to be a bit crowded for riding, I don't
think there are any in really big venues.

I've organised a few rides in and around London, both street riding and
heading out of town to ride muni. If you're interested in doing some
riding round town or doing muni, get in touch (by pm or

What sort of riding do you do and where are you based?

Hi,

Perhaps we should make a London Muni Club?

I've been riding around Richmond Park (London), good paths, and well
away from traffic.  Was wondering if there was anyone who'd like to join
me?

I've been riding my 26" Muni it's got a Nimbus II frame some massive
knobbly tire, with a KH saddle - very comfortable! Beats the hell out of
my 24" cheap piece of rubbish.

Trouble is that I work abroad, Angola, I've been see riding around the
camp here and get some well strange looks! Won't be back for five weeks,
so that gives plenty of time to get a group together?

Let me know,

JJ

I'd be keen on a fairly regular outdoor Uni meet in or around London.
Maybe something like the New York Uni club are doing

'New York Unicycle Club' (http://www.newyorkunicycle.com/index.html)

If anyone's planning a muni/street ride around London let me know. I
ride a 24x3 Nimbus (badly).

Balham (near Clapham).

Can I suggest either

a) meeting at Trafalgar Square where the skate-dancers meet up. There's
trials stuff and lots of space for freestyle riding there. The surface
is super smooth, good for spins and pirouettes and a great place to
learn to juggle whilst riding etc.

b) or in the summer meeting at the Bandstand on Clapham Common. The
reason I suggest this is because it's also a meetup for the Poi in the
Park meets that go on every Sunday from about March->September. They
have lots of lovely people spinning poi and juggling and stuff, so even
if no other unicyclists were to turn up, there'd be loads of other
people around spinning. It's also pretty close to Brixton Beach which is
a sort of mini skate park, only bowls though, no rails or whatnot and
has a nice pub nearby.

I'm planning a street ride, I was hoping to go riding in Trafalgar
Square this sunday, although I've just this minute limped  back from a
night muni ride with a rather sprained ankle, so I may have to hold my
horses till the next sunday.

count me in! The last one was great fun, and I'm (slightly) nearer to
London now...

here's the best 'link to contact us ' (http://tinyurl.com/28hvz)

we do have a simmilar group for 'unicyclists' (http://tinyurl.com/34nrj)
but with the 8th South African National Juggling Convention and
Unicycling Festival coming up in march, we decided to combine the
memberships into one group, we're hoping to reach south african jugglers
and uni'ists that have been doing their thing quietly and without anyone
knowing about them and getting them hooked-up with others in their area
so they can make their way to the convention
from the 16th to the 22nd of march in hibberdeen in kwazulu-natal
when is your holiday?
(BTW. the convention will be dead cheap. the weekend convo 20th-22nd
march will be R300 - if u pay b4 the end of feb - including dormitory
style accomodation and all meals. divide by seven to get to $'s
the whole week convention will be an additional R125 per day, meals
included
the train from jhb down to hibberdeen - and back - will be in the region
of R400
all in, from the time u land in Johannesburg international airport, u're
looking at less than $200 for a weeklong convention, all meals
included
not bad, what?)

Okay,

Sunday February 29th

10.00 Waterloo Station  by the escalators to the Eurostar. Or turn up
later and phone 07905 696427

There'll be riding suitable for trials/muni unicycles and also the areas
we'll be riding have good surfaces, so freestyle / beginner riders are
welcome too.

Anyone up for this?

Joe

it would be great to have u
just to make sure u get the whole picture...
we aren't aware of a single municycle anywhere in jhb
we all ride on no-name brand type uni's
a couple now sport slightly fatter and mildly knoblier bmx tyres as a
nod toward the improvements in the world of unicycling

so, if u're looking at coming down and joining a group of maniacs flying
thru the bush at breakneck speed, u might be dissapointed.
if u want to come down to BE the maniac flying thru the bush at
breakneck speed, something can be arranged.;)
