Myself, my siblings and Norry took part in the Macclesfield Bikeathon a couple of weeks ago and had much fun. We’ve been asked by Bob Ellis, the organiser, if we’d come to the Chester Bikeathon and help with promotion by doing some unicycle marshalling. If anyone else wasnts to do it let me know. It’s only a 15 mile course and flat at that so it’s not that difficult. I think our presence as uni marshalls should attract a few more two wheeled types and hence get a bit more moolah for the hospice.
Bob’s just been on the phone asking if I knew anyone who lived in or near Chester who he can use for a bit of publicity…Photo for the local rag on a unicycle or sumfink.
I was thinking maybe Cath or another of the riders from your way might want to do it. If so give me a shout or e-mail Bob via the website.
Probably just riding around with a toolkit and pointing people in the right direction. I think he’s more interested in it from a publicity point of view. It’s quite a good Unique Selling Point having high vis clad unicyclists there on the day.
OK people, last call for the Bikeathon train. Anyone else wishing to pop along and do some one wheeled marshalling give us a shout…The date is fast approaching. It would be cool to have another person or two as now neither my sister or brother can make it.
