I normally ride between 4 and 5 miles, a few days per/week, during my lunch time.
Today, I rode 6.25 miles. That’s just over 10 kilometers. It was over 90 degrees, and I sweated a ton. But it was a very nice ride, some on road, some on sidewalks and 4 miles on a perfect uni trail called “River Walk Trail”.
I realize 6 1/4 miles is not much to many riders on this board, but it was great for me. My longest previous ride was 5.87 miles.
Why did I ride further today. I locked my keys in my truck at the Park (where my ride began). So, I rode my 4 mile ride, then had to continue all the way back to my office. That accounts for the other 2.25 miles. That’s right, call me a dork. I locked my keys in my truck… but I got a longer uni ride from the mistake. --chirokid–
I don’t usually smoke, but I’ve taken to cigarillos (and will give it up
before the wife and kids find out).
I’d love to be able to smoke and have a beer while riding just to show off
to my brothers how talented (and stupid) I can be.
Really getting addicted to unicycling since I’ve figured out to raise the
seat makes riding so much easier, and freemounting isn’t so difficult.
Now I have to learn to stop and stay mounted, and to turn on a dime.
What a thrill this sport is…barely touch the two wheeler anymore.

My head sweats like a faucet these hot humid summer days. Can’t see. UPD. Constant annoyance. Now I never ride without a bandana wrapped around my head. (and worn under my helmet). Some days I have to ring it out a time or two. And keep that camelback pumping in the new H2O.
I’m working on eating leftovers like last night’s unrefrigerated sushi (just kidding), more like some leftover noodles, while wheelwalking. I’m also working on solving quadric equations while riding to school. No wonder my writing is so sloppy ! If only my math teacher knew.
