I’ll start with a shot of Adam and Lucy on the greenbelt.

It sounds like it should be an awesome ride! I’ll be there! Hopefully we can ride over to the BMX track for a little bit, too… I’d love to check that out! Maybe the natural half-pipe, too, if we have time :smiley: !

I can’t make it.

KH is comeing that same day i wana go to both but i think kh wins i think you should change the date aghan

Ah, memories. I wish I could join you guys. Which way are you going to ride from your start point? It goes both ways from there, though back in my day the southern direction was more user-friendly.

I would love to ride that trail someday on a real MUni. I think all I ever used in there was a 24" Miyata (because that’s all I had). My last ride on that trail was probably in 1994. I can’t remember if I made it back there in '98, when I was in town for Greg Milstein’s wedding. I know I had a unicycle on that trip, because I rode it in NYC.

Please say hi to any of the old-timers from the old Long Island Unicyclists!

It turns out that I can’t make it. Sounds like fun, I hope everyone has a great time.

Thank you for planning the event.

From Adam’s house in Plainview, we’ll most likely go south to Washington Ave. All downhill with a nice trail. The natural BMX track is in that direction so we’ll check that out. I know Andrew (HCR) wants to do that. It’s actually a quick ride. Once over Washington it’s all flat so we’ll just turn around and head back north for the heavy stuff.

I’m sure there will be more outings to come for those who can’t make it this time and we’ll post pictures and video after.

Adam and Renie sent me some pictures of the conditions as of this evening.

I’d love to go, but I have a little problem, I’ve two fractures in my left arm at the shoulder - one may require a pin.:frowning: :frowning: :frowning: :frowning:

Just one, if any - you do have titanium, don’t you? I’ll find out later today.

We will stop to take a peek if the rain is’nt to bad.

Long Island Muni Ride Pictures

Great day. Sorry no video, Their was a strong threat of rain. Just some good stills. More to follow.
The next ride will have an even bigger group.

The best thing about these rides is it brings out the riders from the past.
After a quick bagel, OJ and coffe we were carbed up and ready to go. Of coures some choose to go empty.

Dave Jones showed up and has not gotten on a unicycle in 20 years. I then found out that he was the former president of the Long Island Unicycle club back in the 80’s.
Time to get Long Island and the surrounding areas riding in large quantities. I have many cool and unique things planned for our rides this summer.

Amos Weinberg pulled up with his 29" Muni’s as well as his Coker.
First dirt ride for Amos(Awsome). Forget the Two Wheeler.

David(D4) from the NY Unicycle Club in manhatten(grants tomb)and his 7 year old daughter rebecca came from Jersey. She only learned a few months ago and was riding thru the trails like a little bird(greate job).

Jeff(shibumi) Came with his 29’er and ripped up the trails. He’s got the Muni thing down well now.

Our next Muni ride will be announced next week. Muni riding for everyone.

Thanks everyone
