Ready to Ride again

June 7, 2009

Team Unicycle Max is ready to ride again. It’s been over a year since Ride The Lobster and we’re all very anxious to get going. While this year’s journey will not be nearly as epic as last year’s 500 mile grueling trek through Nova Scotia, we’re hoping to at least capture that same energy and excitement.

The second annual Team Unicycle Max epic ride of awesomeness will be a scenic cruise through the Blue Ridge Mountains of Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. Skyline Drive is famous for being one of the most gorgeous winding mountain roads in the country. We won’t be unicycling the entire length of the drive, but will cover at least half of it. This trip will come with the expert support of my wife, Chrissy. The plan is for 2 days of riding, 1 day of hiking, and 3 nights of tent camping.

We probably won’t have the connectivity during our camping trip in the mountains to update the site, but please follow @epluribusfunk on twitter for live on the road tweets. Stay tuned folks, Team unicycle max is back in the saddle and ready to ride.

You Need to Uni

March 31, 2009

Spring has sprung and it’s time to get back in shape. The 2009 unicycling season is already filling up with various races and adventures, so it’s time to dust off the winter cobwebs and get back in the saddle.

Here in Philly, I finally found some fellow unicyclists to explore the local trails with. We started things off with a short 5 mile loop around Ridley Creek State Park. The trail was wide, paved, and busy with bikers, joggers, kids and dogs. Everyone seemed to enjoy seeing 3 big unicycles roll by. Our climbing legs are out of shape as the one long steep hill at the beginning gave us a hard time. We’ll conquer it next time.

Some upcoming events for Team Unicycle Max: a team ride around Lake Champlain in July or September, a 19 mile race on Long Beach Island in June, the Whiteface Mountain Uphill Race in June or September, and several small adventures inbetween. Max and I also applied for the Evolution of Balance award with 2 other young riders we met at RTL. If we win, the 4 of us will be heading to Iceland for some volcanic rock and glacial mountain unicycling. The winners of the award will be announced at the end of April. In the meantime, we just keep pedaling, getting back into shape. Ride on!
