DC Unicyclists

Attention all DC Unicyclists:

I go to AU and am desperate for unicycle friends (people at AU surprisingly do not understand the greatness of unicycling) and company for muni rides. If a) you live in DC and b) you unicycle, then e-mail me and we can wreak havok on our nation’s capital with mad unicycle skills.

Last I remember, Nbrazzi lives in Georgetown. I haven’t seen him post here in a while though. There were talks of the HoW gang meeting up with him somewhere for a ride. Never happened though.

I live in dc for part of the year, and often visit home there from pittsburgh.

dc uni

Yes the Hell on Wheel meet-up never happened. i am trying to start a DC HoW branch here (i just moved up from richmond, hometown of HoW) but i have been unsucessful in locating one wheeled friends…

if someone would give me a ride i would be happy to go. i live in DC.

Well, here’s another thread that I missed. Its a good thing somebody revived it. I work on sundays, so I can’t go to that thing.

But, how about this for an opening suggestion. This friday or saturday. Fountainhead park in virginia (near woodbridge). The best Muni I’ve found in the area yet.

you need a car. or maybe not patapsco park is near a marc train stop on the way to baltimore.

i used to be a mtnbiker in the dc/baltimore area. i’ve sinced moved to texas and traded in 2wheels for one. i’d love to go back to my favorite spots and muni.

seek out:

gambrils state park near fredricksburg, MD
patapsco state park southwest of baltimore, near I95
there’s a park near rockville, forgot the name.
lockraven resevoir is great, north of baltimore.

next time i come home to visit, i’ll email you.
