    though I would like to create a group "opened" to others, we ("old geezers") have specific problems (ok some are gender-specific but we are not going to talk about that )

      Lol
      For the most part, if you want to be cool, you might want to avoid unicycles. But if you want to ride unicycles, you're into a different kind of cool. We are not sheep! (Foss, 2017, p. 93)

        Most older women would not describe themselves as geezers.

              Women on unicycles are also geezers. They just don't know it yet or refuse to accept it

                Perhaps they are "geezhers"?

                    Ladies, create a Women's group if you want. I can understand wanting to talk about some subjects without a bunch of men coming along and "not getting it".

                    I prefer the open forum, but I'm a dude, and I've been around this community since it was only an email mailing list.

                    My wife created a women's support group for non-riders after going to her first couple of uni conventions, called the Unicycle Widows. The core group was just three, but they had these great Unicycle Widows polo shirts made, in pink, so they could sport their own look. Jacquie Dillard-Foss, Patti Hughes (mom of Jack Hughes) and Amy Drummond. Fun times!

                    Photo: Amy Drummond and one of the Arnold girls, supporting Jacquie at the CN Tower in Toronto. That was the "National Unicycle Convention", 2001
