I was contacted about a month ago by a producer from Yahoo.com. They had read about me in the book, "50 athletes over 50", and wanted to send a film crew out to interview and film me riding, for a series on Yahoo called "Second Act". I thought this would be the perfect forum for this thread since the series is about people over 50, who have "reinvented" their lives with something unique and positive. :)
I had fun with it and we filmed the interview and riding at Hummingbird trail in Simi Valley, CA. It just came out 9/7/10. In less than a day it's had over 30,000 views, and the producers told me it could go into the multi-millions since it's on their main page now. Good exposure for this emerging sport!

BTW, you have a typo in your sig line. It says Ungeezer and not UnIgeezer, although UN is probabaly just as appropriate.

I think the best laugh I ever got in my life was attempting to ride a unicycle I had just purchased at a second hand store. The better half and I had friends visiting and we all had done a little antiquing that afternoon. I spied this unicycle, bought it and tried to ride it when we got back to the house.
They were begging me to stop the laughter hurt so...

Well done! I enjoyed the video. Cannot imagine doing 100 miles on one wheel.

Congrats on the feature. You certainly deserve the recognition. Keep on(e) pedaling. :thumb:

Great story, but I think you're lying about your age. You don't look more than 35.:D
Take care. I know a guy who says he will never be a father because he rode a unicycle too much.

Thanks for posting.
I still remember the video you posted a while back when you were coming down a piece of singletrack, and the hikers you are passing on the way down can be heard saying, "Whooaaaa...."
