A Perfect Shlumpf Ride
Aloha fellow unicyclist,
People that know me, know I love to MUni. Now since I got my guni29/42, I'm loving the asphalt. I'm smiling ear to ear with the perfect road coarse that I didn't know I had... Then I learned how to shift.
We live on the foothills of the Koolau mountain range. Most of roads in this area are heavy traffic. But our neighborhood has a Botanical Garden(Hoomaluhia) and the gate is close to cars most of the time. Through the years, I rode it several times on bike and a 29er, but it didn't really excite me. Then came gears.
Before the Schlumpf(9 months ago), I never rode anything bigger than a 29". I didn't even try to shift gears for the 1st 3 months. But if I was going to enjoy this beautiful trail I needed to learn how to shift. Because my legs and heart aren't that powerful, I have to downshift on the up hills. I shift gears 22 times on this 6 mile coarse. One day last week I got a perfect 22 for 22! (should post on brag thread). I'm making this place my training coarse, as I want to enter the Century Ride(25 miles) in September.
It's a peaceful, scenic ride. Animals I've seen (besides lots of birds) are wild pigs and mongoose. I always knew how pretty Hoomaluhia was, but it wasn't until the guni that I maximized the potential. I'm sure there are lots of fun guni rides out there. I have one of the best in my backyard. Tell me about yours. Opps, last hour of sunlight and the Koolau mts are calling.
Keep the blood flowing, Critter
MUni! The closest I'll ever get to bull riding!
