Hope to see you there!

Just a couple more days until the Minnesota Classic Unicycle Fun Ride, Sunday, September 12, 2004.

We’ll be on the Gateway Trail. It’s an 18-mile trail that runs from St. Paul to Pine Point Park. It’s a nice, smooth trail in Ramsey and Washington counties on a former Soo Line Railroad grade, so it’s fairly level.

Several ride options/route lengths are available:

  1. Chihuahua
  2. Poodle
  3. Schnauzer
  4. Bulldog
  5. Russian Wolfhound
  6. Coker Spaniel

All routes will begin at the parking lot on White Bear Ave., just south of County Road B, at the Maplewood Community Center.

Meet there at 9:30 a.m. for a breakfast treat. Be ready to ride at 10 a.m.

Bring water and $$ to stop for energy-boosting treats along the way.

We’ll ride unless it’s raining a lot. A few sprinkles won’t be a problem.

Any other questions, please send me an e-mail at

See you Sunday!

Nice idea Carol, esp the route names!

do tell us how it went afterwards.
ps- sorry, its bit to far for me to join you this weekend.

It was great!

We had a gorgeous day, the trail was smooth, no mishaps, and several people set new records for themselves!

The Schnauzers did 7.5 miles, which was a new record for Ginny.

The Bulldogs did a whopping 27 miles, which was a new record for Shirley.

The Coker Spaniels breezed through the 27-mile course, which was a piece of cake for Joe, Gus, and Rob.

Pedro rode an amazing 27 miles on a 24-inch.

The rest of us did fine, too.

All in all, an excellent way to spend the day. Had lots of encouragement, plenty of water and snack breaks, and two people stopped us along the way to ask if they could dig out their unicycles and join us next time.

It was about 86 degrees F., but, as you can see, the snowman in North St. Paul wasn’t even sweating.
