Come and join us in our fifth year! Early registration ends on October 1st. Please feel free to ask questions here about the festival. The festival is held in the Pisgah National Forest, just south of Asheville, North Carolina. There are miles of great trails suitable to challenge all riders at any level. Registration includes two meals, a t-shirt and camping in a groups site. Please bring your friends and spread the word so that we can keep this festival going. Thank you unicycle.com and Second Gear for your sponsorships this year.
Sorry guys, don’t think I’m going to be able to make it this year! Went to the orthopedist a couple days ago and he wants me in my boot another six weeks! Well he did say initially it would be 2-3 months minimum and he’s right! Only good news is that I am healing just fine it’s just that the fracture was in an area that is very slow to mend itself. Typical! So that puts me through Halloween when I go back for another follow-up. While I could be good to go that weekend before my follow-up (i.e. the MUniFest weekend) I just don’t want to risk doing any MUni damage to myself. I’ve got to think about my long term situation here. As it is, when I do start back, it’s going to take a while to get back to my old form.
While I can’t do MUni, I can road ride. So since I had a great 50 mile road ride this past weekend I’m now making plans to ride the Silver Comet - Chief Ladiga Trail sometime very soon for my first uni-century! Wish me luck!
So have fun and rock it out! Perhaps I’ll see you guys on the trails before next year. No reason we can’t have a quarterly MUni Meetup at some neutral locations. You guys would love Oak Mountain, AL and/or Raccoon Mountain, TN.
I am new to the forums and Unicycling but loving it. I am not sure if I will be welcome but would love to attend. I have only been riding for the last 3 weeks but can ride for a couple of miles at a time with no issues. Most of my riding is on road / commuting on my poor little Sun 24”.
I would love to be able to ride with others and join the group.
Hey Davey, it’s not all super pro riders, lots of folks just come out to ride with others, so you’ll meet all levels of riders and there will all types of riding available. Just show up, you’re bound to be stoked, not often that such a large group of unicyclists get together, as a new rider you shoudl show up for sure!
And you can try out all the other riders unis/munis which is a real treat if you never ridden a guni, giraffe, or 36er
I have a chest cold I haven’t been able to shake since Sep 9 (despite several rounds of antibiotics and other meds) so I won’t be able to make it to munifest. I thought it would be gone by now. I’ll be sure to make it next year.
So sorry I’m going to miss all you guys AGAIN! Just too chancy taking on that much buff MUni just days away from getting out of my cam-walker boot. I’ve been out of running and MUni action for over 3 months and am just finally going to be able to start back into things next week. But hey, doesn’t mean we can only meet up once a year you know. There is some fantastic riding all around the south east. I’m planning on making another trip back to Oak Mountain, Raccoon Mountain and just tearing up the trails around my own Monte Sano State Park in the coming months. Just drop me a line if you’d like to meet up for a ride.
Hey Munisano- this might still be a little to soon regarding your injury, but Nurse Ben and I have a tentative plan for Raccoon Mtn. for the weekend of Nov. 10th. Not set in stone, but either Sat. or Sun works for me. We probably won’t be tearing anything up, but good to get out and meet new folks.
