Intro

This year I will be 40.
This year I am learning to ride the unicycle.
It is not something that is coming easily but it is something I really want to do.
2 things are against me - my age & the fact that I'm a wimp.
I'm fed up about reading on the websites about people learning to ride in 10 hours (or much less). The only ray of hope was in a book, which conceeds that older people can take longer to learn.
Anyway, there is little about older people learning to ride the unicycle , so I'm going to write about my experience. It may help other older people who are learning what is obviously a youth-dominated sport; or it may just help me. Whatever.
