Unicycling

Unicycling is one of my favorite activities — especially mountain unicycling or road riding in the hills by my house. I learned to unicycle in April 2004 when I got my first one: a cromo steel Kris Holm 24″ mountain uni.

I was the previous 2010 Unicycle Marathon World Champion! The course was really suited to my riding style. In 2012, I attended UNICON and got 3rd in each of the marathon, 10km and 100km races. The cool thing about the 100km race is that I was one of the only people to do it nonstop, with zero dismounts or falls.. At the North American Unicycle Nationals in 2010 (called UGames), I also won the Downhill Mountain Unicycling race, and Marathon race. I placed second in the 10km and time trial races (behind the super-fast Chuck Edwall) and 3rd in Mountain Uni Cross Country.

I have a lot of unicycles and primary ride my Kris Holm geared 36″ road uni and 24″ geared mountain unicycle. I also have a geared 26″ muni. The geared hub is a planetary system that gives two speeds, and are from Schlumpf Innovations.

In April 2017 I rode the Arizona Trail on my unicycle. Check out all the posts: Arizona Trail on Unicycle.

In 2015 I rode my unicycle through the Himalayan mountains of Nepal.

Listed below are various posts about unicycling (this is my “Unicycling” category on the left”).

Here are links to all the Google Maps for our Arizona Trail Unicycle adventure. Note that I started in Tucson to join my friends who got a 5 day head start. These were created by recording each day with Strava.


The Arizona Trail on Unicycle: Day 29, The Last Day

April 28, 2017 So, at this point, I had stopped writing daily notes in my iPhone, and it is now nearly a month later where my memory is already starting to fade. All the celebration at the end of the trip, and I forgot to take detailed notes. But I will never completely forget this day. Riding the Arizona trail was the hardest physical thing that I have ever done. I lost about five pounds, despite eating a jar of peanut butter every week. Don’t worry, I’m working on gaining the weight back by drinking home-brew.  The last day. We... [read more]


The Arizona Trail on Unicycle: Day 28, The Cold Cold Day

April 27, 2017 That’s two colds in the title, because it was really cold. One thing I didn’t mention about the prior day was the wind. The wind was constantly blowing, and it would usually stop at night, but the night before it never stopped. We woke up in the morning, and the wind woke up with us. The wind was a little tired and slower than normal, it probably just needed its coffee, but it was still blowing, and it picked up as time went on. One good thing about it freezing at night is that the snow becomes... [read more]


The Arizona Trail on Unicycle: Day 27, Welcome to the Snow

April 26, 2017 We weren’t sure who was going to have a harder day. Our three hiking friends, Lexi, Colin and Ashley, had to hike back out to the south rim of the Grand Canyon in one shot, and take a slightly longer hiking path via the Bright Angel Trail. The Bright Angel Trail is less steep, but longer, and from the Cottonwood Campsite it was a full 20 miles. The unicyclists, Jamey, Rebekka and myself, had to hike about seven miles to the north rim and ride as far as we could. We got up a bit earlier than... [read more]
