Hello there forum peeps!
Just dropping in one last time to say goodbye. On Saturday a good friend and I are flying to Vietnam to start our epic overland Asia bike tour- It looks as though we will be on the road for about a year cycling through Asia (generally in a Western direction) hopefully ending up in Turkey about this time next year. That means i will be out of the unicycling game for a while- but i will most likely get back into it once I return (although I have been fighting the itch to get a proper XC bike and have a season of racing in the Australian Enduro MTB series). We’ll have to wait and see.
Thanks for all the good discussion/ arguments over the last 10 years or so. I have been lucky to see this sport come so far in this last decade and I think it is largely due to these forums and the people who want to share their experiences, adventures and love of this great sport. Keep on doing what you do and i’ll catch you all down the (single)track!
Have an awesome trip mate. It will be life changing. If you continue riding after turkey there’s a spare room in Denmark for you! Cheers, dmac
Go Mark! Good luck and have a nice trip.
And if you by any chance meet JP and Tina, say hello from me (they are travelling more or less in oposite direction http://www.bravelemming.com/).
Have a great trip Mark!
Are you going to have a blog for your journey? Perhaps meet up in Uzbekistan
You should have a go at XC MTBking- I think you’ll be good at it.
i iwll miss you! please have blog
Good luck Mark,
We’ll all be here when you get back!
Sounds awesome! Have a great time. Hate to lose a geared muni compatriot from the forum.
Hey Mark! Have an awesome trip! Our muni tour this summer was fantastic and I know you’ll make this trip the trip of your life.
Also, thanks for converting me to a geared muni compatriot
Good luck Mark, have a great trip and safe journey.

When you come back there’s nothing stopping you from doin both.
Muni is great training.

Cheers Folks! I fly out tomorrow- thanks for all the well wishing. We won’t be keeping a blog (too much work and detracts from the experience keeping it up to date) but i will probably be using facebook to keep people in the loop as to what is happening. Feel free to add me if you want to know whats going on.
Mark Lavis signing out! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaa
I know you probably wont see my post since you are already logged out, but I’m still going to post something for you
Anyways, it was awesome meeting you for the first time at Unicon in Italy, I had great time with you. You motivated me alot for my races at Unicon since Benoit told me you were a beast. I tried to do faster than you, I was close but I didn’t manage to do it! Have a great trip, I hope to see you again on the unicycle sometimes!
Have fun, be safe and hope to live thru you bi-curiously via Facebook photos and updates.
Map of vietnam! Keep it real uni guys and gals,
