first to be stopped by the GMP ( greater manchester police) for not having lights and i quote " you cant ride that thing withouts lights you cant ride anything without light" i tryed to argue wasnt a good idea but ive not been stopped since
I was the first to do an annual triathlon on a unicycle out here. It is called the rusty family, in reference to a larger one called the rust man out here. Rust man refirs to the larger iron man in Hawaii.
I completed this rusty family with an ok time (considering some people actually carry their kids the whole way by towing them in the water, pulling them in a bike burley, and the pushing them in a running stroller type thing). The unicycle ride was 10 miles and I completed it in one hour on an unguarded 29" with 125mm cranks.
I know many of you guys could do better, but nobody on my island has ever competed on a unicycle.
That’s the weird thing with unicyclists - as it’s not really mainstream yet, lots of people who start riding muni/distance seem to want to do new stuff all the time and do stuff never been done before, unlike mountain bikers who’re normally pretty content with just riding.
