This weekend, my sister and I went to our first unicycling and juggling festival
in St. Paul, Minn., MONDO, which was totally amazing!!!
Not only did we get to hang out with all the cool people in the Twin City
Unicycle Club, but we got to try a whole bunch of different kinds of unicycles
and learn new tricks. Before this weekend, we had never seen anyone walk the
wheel, stand-up walk the wheel, hand walk the wheel, glide, jump mount, or
kick-up mount in real life. Now, we’re in the process of learning many new
things like wheel walking and new mounts. My greatest achievement of the weekend
would have to be learning the suicide mount - I can’t believe I did it! That is
We got to try 16" unis, 20", 24", 28" and even a 36" uni - WOW. We also tried a
double wheeler, an ultimate wheel, a B.C. wheel, and a rola bola!!
And the juggling was really incredible - balls, clubs, rings, torches, machetes,
batons - 3, 4, 5, 7 and 9 things in the air! Great team juggling, contact
juggling, and unicycling while juggling and tons of amazing patterns. Also –
yo-yos, diabolos, devil sticks, and balancing. We saw people balance clubs on
their chins while juggling and/or unicycling, balance roses or unicycles or even
huge long tables!
We also got our first taste of unicycle hockey, which was really cool and very
exhausting. AND we got to ride in our first-ever parade with the TCUC in
downtown St. Paul! It was incredibly cool.
I’m certainly inspired!!
