In conjunction with the Berkeley Juggling Festival, Sept 29-Oct 1, we are entered in the Mount Diablo Challenge Sunday Oct 1! It’s an awesome Coker race up Mt Diablo against bikes. There will be about 1000 bikes plus as many Cokers as we can field. We’ve had up to about a dozen unicyclists which makes it really fun. It’s a 10.8 mile ride climbing 3300’. We usually end up in the middle of the field, finishing in 1:20 to 1:30. I’ve done the race every year since 2000 or 2001.

We are planning to spend all day Saturday at the Berkeley Juggling Festival: http://www.berkeleyjuggling.org/festival2006/ - the Saturday morning “Critical Mass” Unicycle tour of Berkeley is NOT TO BE MISSED!
You won’t want to miss the public show Saturday either. Then we’ll drive out to Mt Diablo Sunday mornig and do the race. Irene Genelin (superstar world standard skills champ) from Washington will be with us and is looking forward to beating as many Californians as possible in the race. Let’s make sure she fails in that attempt!
