I’ve been composing an elaborate announcement thing in my head for this forum for a long time. But instead I’m just going to say: “Hey! I’m trying to break a world record!” because there are a ridiculous number of tasks to finish, I’m completely overwhelmed, and if I don’t do this right now I never will. And it’s happening really soon!
Saturday March 10th is the date. It’s in Kingston Ontario. Any Ottawa, Toronto, or Montreal riders free that weekend let me know! There are driving coordination plans going on right now for all those cities. The local unicyclists here in Kingston are putting on a learn-to-unicycle workshop during the attempt (among lots of other cool stuff), and the more people to help spread the sport the better!
We’re (I’ve got a team of about 9 dedicated people helping organize this, and it’s backed by the Queen’s University chapter of Engineers Without Borders) trying to promote sustainable food. Eating locally grown produce, and choosing fair trade products where possible.
Ok I’m going to cut myself off at that, since I need to get sleep so I can get in a ride tomorrow morning. I like this better too – instead of me trying to start off by covering all the points in one post, we can just see where the discussion goes! If it goes. Hopefully it goes. I like the community here. I don’t post much, but I’m an active lurker.
