Boston Unicyclists on Chronicle

In case your interested, I have the TV segment I mentioned a while back online. A local news magazine show called Chronicle did a story on my friends Dan Lucal, Joey Cohn and I doing MUni. It’s about 2 minutes long. You can download it here: http://www.benps.unicyclist.com/videos.html

That was pretty awsome! Good job you guys! Way to make us look good!

Very impressive stuff!

Nice! That’s good coverage.

I’d add that unicycles are safer than mountain bikes because we don’t have handlebars and top tubes in the way when you crash. An endo over the handlebars on a bike is not a safe way to crash even at low speeds.

Congratulations guys - very nice piece! Bronson and I just watched it - that
snow riding looks great. I think you’ll kill 'em in Toronto.

RE: Boston Unicyclists on Chronicle

Nice job in the snow, Ben! Our son Casey and his buddies just formed a
unicycle club at his high school, and they’ve been shooting a video for
several weeks. We got to see an early draft. Casey made the JV soccer
team last week, though, so the final video will be delayed.

Well done guys, nice coverage, excellent uni PR!

Very very nice, love the trials stuff. And nice snow-plowing! With that type of skill, you’ll kick tire in Toronto.

Good luck!

Ben and Joey, while I was ridning MUni in Sedona, AZ a couple of months ago, Dec. 2002, I came across a couple of mt. bikers. They were intrigued by the MUni and we started to have a conversation. It turns out that they were on vacation, from the Boston area, and had seen something about MUni in their local paper. Must have been you guys. Keep up the good press.

Ride strong and have a blast.

Re: Boston Unicyclists on Chronicle

Way to go Ben, Joey and Dan. That was a rad little segment! I really liked how
they didn’t have any clown remarks, which was probably due to your excellent
skills. You/they did a great job.
