Thanks very much for sharing. Was Dan Gonzalez there again this year, with his double-reduction gear system, which let him spin about a 7-inch gear up the hill?
I don't know whether I could handle a 33% grade -- I have enough trouble w/ my friend's 19% driveway, which required a variance from the city. My definition of steep is half of Fargo St.'s grade.
As for the unicycle thing, I have never had the coordination necessary to ride one of those infernal contraptions, so I guess you get double credit.
Two years ago a mother-daughter team of unicyclists rode in our annual Neptune Ave. 4th of July Parade -- mom was in our age bracket and gorgeous, so I guess it's good exercise.
