Welcome to Detroit Michigan Region's Unicycle Club
||The Redford Township Unicycle
Club (RTUC) began in 1975 as a group of neighborhood teen-agers who
enjoyed riding unicycles. They challenged one another to
learn new tricks and returned from their first National
Convention (held that year in Pontiac, MI) determined to become one of
the best clubs competing. The riders made all of the wooden
equipment (ramps and beams) that is still being
used today. Several of them created unusual unicycles, such as the 4"
and 2" wheeled unicycles. In 1979 sixteen of the
riders spent a month in Europe performing with the Redford
Union High School Band in Germany, Austria and northern Italy.
The club has now taken on a very different look. No longer are the riders entirely school-age children. The Club is now inter-generational with many fathers and mothers riding with their children and several active three-generation families.
Current activities include improving artistic ability, participating in parades, explaining unicycling to community groups, competition in national events and of course being a good social group.
