I've been to NYC once before a few years ago and had a blast. I only saw the essential tourist places in a few days because of my meager budget. I've been wanting to go back and see sites I missed. A couple of weeks ago I started riding a unicycle and thought it would be fun to combine vacation with a unicycling event. I can't make it to Unicon so this would be the next best option. Would it be worth the large amount of frequent flyer miles I would have to use for the airfare and hotel? I was thinking of just going to this festival for one day. If end up going should I haul my unicycle out there? It's a 24" Sun Classic. Or would there be an opportunity to rent a unicycle?

Anyone from outside of NYC go to this event last year? What do you think?

So far I can ride about 100 yards and I'm just starting to work on free mounting. Hopefully I'll have free mounting down by then.

Definitely. I'd love to go, but since I am going to Unicon I know I can't make this one. Someday!

For sights to see, don't overlook some unicycling in Central Park, which is a lot of fun. Hit the big rocks in the southern part of the park, near the Childrens Zoo. First place I ever rode a unicycle on pure rock; it was some of my early MUni riding. Then there's probably some non-unicycling stuff you could see as well.

Would it be worth the large amount of frequent flyer miles I would have to use for the airfare and hotel?
Contact the organizers and local riders. It's possible someone has a place you could stay at their house/apartment. If you do get connected to the local unicyclists, you might also be able to borrow a uni; a great idea for a 1-day event and for such a new rider.

Have a great time in my place!

Thanks for the encouragement John. I'll be sure to report back on how it goes. I just might bring my uni with me. Not sure if I'll be doing any Muni by then. Got to get my free mount working first.
