70 Miles on a Unicycle for Charity Event

On 6/22/14, I pedaled my 36er unicycle more than 39 thousands revolutions, totaling 70 miles. Out of the several thousands of two-wheeled cyclists there for the 14th annual River ride, I think I was the sole unicyclist. Collectively, we raised tons of money for various charities, so it was a good cause!

Nice video, I think unicycles are so cool. A couple of years ago, I chatted with a fellow that was going to do the STP on a large unicycle. BTW, thats so nice you were able to find your camera.

Thanks, yeah I know the guys who have done the STP on 36ers, but since I'm in Los Angeles it's hard to get up there, so I'm planning my own "200 miles in 24hrs" ride down here. I'll be going solo and unsupported.

Excellent, I tried to learn to ride a unicycle a few years ago, but then didn't have the time ( excuse I know :-) to make it work. Be sure and post a photo later on of your loaded Unicycle during your trip later on. Good luck
