Anyone hear of unicycling in Norway?

The best thing to do, would be to get a solid tyre and drive some nails
through it from the inside for that extra grip on the glaciers, just make sure
that you don’t do any wheel walks!

Hey! Great idea! I thought about riding through snow, but that’s pretty boring.
Up and down glaciers is a classy act. I’ll ride up and coast down a glacier :->.
Sounds like great fun!

I like the idea of nails and no wheel walking, but nails would make it too easy
wouldn’t it? Warning: Your dealing with a guy, who considers riding an
unmodified unicycle on frozen lakes fun!

Thanks for the chuckle, Iain!

Sincerely,

Ken.

Ok, second time lucky - I sent it to the wrong mailing-list by accident! :wink:

how about nails on only half the tyre, like a half-wheel uni?

watch where you fall, and remember - it’s not my fault! :wink:

Man, you guys are nuts! At least when I come up with crazy ideas, I don’t
really do them…I’ve got a wife and 2 year old daughter, so I at least have
to hold off until my wipeouts can actually buy me some pitty and attention :slight_smile:

      Have fun (and wear lots of pads :)
