I took my Blue Shift ride today by going a couple of loops around the outer bike path of Green Lake Park. Part of this would see me either riding north on state highway 99 where the path ends or off road on a gravel path. I had on the 661 gear so was not averse to riding along with 45mph city traffic since it makes me indestructible, but I decided it might be fun to take the unicycle off road in 43.5" mode. It was delightfully smooth. And, yes, I overtook two bicyclists while riding off road. I wasn’t passed by a single bicyclist today.
Yesterday, on the bike path downtown, I was slowly passed by a guy on a bicycle who exclaimed, “jeez, do you have gears on that thing? You’re screaming along here!” Yes, I do. Also lots of protective gears.
