TUM 2009 Recap – Shenandoah National Park

April 10, 2011

Well folks, it’s about that time of year again. Team Unicycle Max are in the planning stages of our next great unicycle adventure. It’s been a few years since we updated our blog, but rest assured, we have been very busy. Allow me to fill you in on our 2009 adventure.

After Ride The Lobster in 2008, the three of us decided to make this team uni ride an annual event. The first post-RTL ride for Team Unicycle Max happened in Shenandoah National Park, on Skyline Drive in Virginia. We rode, we camped, we hiked, we met a lot of really nice and generous people along the way. It was a huge success and we had a great time.


Stay tuned for a retrospective look at the 2010 adventure: The Grand Canyon.

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.
