Here are clips of local TV news coverage of last week’s El Tour de Tucson. The first, short part is from the 5:30 news with mention of a unicyclist. The rest is from the 9:00 o’clock news that include an interview with my wife and some footage of me riding.
Congratulations!! You’re a Tucson celeb now.
I’ve been on the lucky side of a bunch of things that seemed to me to be unlikely to ever be cool - being a nerd, being bald, and unicycle riding.
My wife mentions me wanting to beat Bryce and Leif’s time. Since, they were the first to have the audacity to try it and the gumption to finish, I had to do something new, and that was to go really fast. I did have a secret weapon - Schlumpf. I have total respect for those guys.
Really nicely done Andy.

Love this quote!
BTW: you totally and completey SMASHED our 109 mile ride times from 2009!
Way to go!
Bryce, you really need to put your Schlumpf in your 36 already.
