Bedford Factory Team rocks Bradford Festival

The Bedford Unicycles Factory Team put on a couple unicycle shows in Bradford at Carrot Fest on Saturday August 23rd.

Bradford is less than an hour North of Toronto and is the biggest carrot producer in Canada, so they call their festival Carrot Fest.

We did a trials demo for a huge crowd on a warm sunny day. It was one of the main attractions this year.
We have done unicycle hockey and unicycle basketball demos in previous years at the same festival.
Over the years we have inspired kids from Bradford to start riding unicycles. One of them was out this year trying to hop on our boxes.

Following the shows we allowed the public to try a unicycle. Little kids to adults formed long lines waiting to try.

Riders were: Carl, Ryan, Nick and Sara
M.C. was Darren

Sara (from Germany) performed a bunch of freestyle tricks. Nice addition to have her perform with our team.

Carl, Nick and Ryan did trials. Everything from boxes, ramps, sandwich boards, platforms and rails. All the riders made it look real easy hopping and riding over the structures.

The crowd was pumped and everyone had a good time.

Ryan did many big drops from over 6' onto the ground. Once blowing a tube and another braking a seat post which lead to visiting Bedford Unicycles shop for free replacement parts after the show.


The team will be performing 5 shows at the Junction Arts Festival on September 13th & 14th.
We will have Jeff Groves as well to crush the car. He was attending the Vancouver Island MUni week-end so he wasn't with us at Carrot Fest.

Cheers,
Darren
