Has anybody ever considered actually making a calendar? It would be so cool.

For a few examples, read the first post of this thread, and see the links in there. Before 2010, the late magazine UNI produced one or two calendars.

A couple from the San Francisco ride this year. I dunno why I like the last one, but I do. I still need to stitch together the video from that....

I've had Klaas Bil's calendars up in my cubicle at work for the past two years. Looking forward to the 2016 edition! Thy're the best!

I want to get in on this for once (usually I'm way too slow getting my pictures out). Here's a few from 2015:

Note: These are just exports at 800px, with the copyright notice my app puts on automatically. If anyone would like to use these for a calendar I can output some proper, high-res ones.

Thanks all so far, this is turning into an eye candy thread.

Let me rephrase that. Pictures of unicycles 'posing' (with or without rider(s)) have generally a low chance of ending up in my calendar. There have been exceptions in the past where there was a funny twist; Rafael's picture of a statue of the Green Hulk riding his (Rafael's) unicycle comes to mind.

Also, to date the pictures are somewhat heavy on MUni and XC (with male riders, for that matter). While I love that discipline, I'd encourage more diversity. Where are the trials/street/urban, freestyle, racing photos hanging out? Or the remarkable ones e.g. very young or very old riders, surprising places to ride, very special unicycles, etc?

Here is one of my all time favorites from this year (and actually ever) of me performing. I was halfway thru my show when all of a sudden a huge bang went off and I sat up on my 12 foot watching the fireworks then continued on my show. This was taken by a fan and this is the highest resolution I have.

Here is another one taken at a festival in Tempe, AZ. A fan took it and edited it to look like this.

And the last ones are from when I rode the Colorado Trail on a unicycle.

Pity that the wheel is not on the picture. For all we know you could be polesitting.

Would you have a higher res version of this one?

Is this an unsupported, solo, more-than-one-day trip? Looks like it, judging from what you carry.

Ya it would be nice if the wheel was in the picture but I kinda like the mystery of it not being there.

The highest resolution of that photo I have is 116kb but I might be able to ask for a higher one if needed.

Yes, on August 25th, 2015, my birthday, I started an epic solo muni adventure riding the entire Colorado Trail self supported. It's 500 miles (805km) long with an average elevation of 10,000 feet thru the Rocky Mountains with 90,000 feet (27,400m) of climbing. I averaged 25 miles a day taking 21 days to finish. You can read all about it in my blog here: http://www.uniproshow.com/apps/blog/
