Congratulations, Chuck!

Chuck,

Congratulations on earning the 2014 champ status!! I hope you and your competitor, Stephen Petrie, enjoyed Whiteface, and I hope that the race took place on a clear, sunny day for a great view at the summit!

You mentioned “… can't imagine shaving a half hour off that time. I rode a 29/127.” In response, since you were able to climb Whiteface on a 29/127, I’d venture to guess that the size of your quads can be likened to the size of sequoias and that you are in really great shape! … mega kudos to you for being able to climb Whiteface using that setup! …same goes for Steve Relles since he mentioned climbing previously with a 29/150!!! Wow! Had I pedaled a 29/127 on Whiteface, Chuck, (or even a 29/150, Steve), my legs probably would have cramped up, and that could have easily added a half hour or more onto my time. The reason that I know this is because of my experience having tried Mt. Washington twice and having been able to shave 20+ minutes off of my first time by using a lower wheel-to-crank ratio for my second climb. That being said, I might have to start worrying should you (and/or Stephen Petrie and/or Steve Relles… etc.) plan on possibly attempting Whiteface next year with longer cranks!

High regards (pun intended), Chuck (and Stephen Petrie, too)!

This just needed a few updates, and a little bump -

NOTE - there a possible bunch of unicycles signed up for this year's Whiteface Mtn Uphill: 4-JUN-2017
Come one, come all! Beautiful ride with views of the ADKs to take your mind off the pedaling.

Mt Washington

And don't forget registration opens for Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb Feb. 1 and yes there is a unicycle category. I've heard this event sells out very quickly so plan ahead if interested.
