MUni article in the BicyclePaper

At Tuesday’s practice I was given the Fall issue of the BicyclePaper. The BicyclePaper is a free publication distributed at bike and sport shops for Northwest US cycling information.

On page three is a an article Unicycling Takes the Act Off-road. Fortunately the paper is also fully on line, they just updated their site to the Fall issue last night.

Good article, she did her homework, but somehow unicyclist.com wasn’t mentioned.

Enjoy,

Re: MUni article in the BicyclePaper

thanx for the heads-up!

once again i’ll suggest firing off a quick email to the editor to thank him for including such a well-researched and well written uni article

editor@bicyclepaper.com

I knew the Bicycle Paper was going to do a feature about muni. You beat me to the announcement. I didn’t know the new issue was out already.

The reporter contacted me to ask if I could do an interview for the article but that was right before NAUCC so I wasn’t available. By the time NAUCC was over the article was written and her internship at Bicycle Paper was ending in a few days. I missed my chance. :frowning:

excellent read… :slight_smile:

Re: MUni article in the BicyclePaper

nah, she mentioned it

"One look at the unicycle.com web site and it is clear that unicycling is not simply a quirky past time of the eccentric neighbor or the juggling bear. "

Nice! I emailed them as well, but have not gotten a response back yet. They must like people from Oregon more?!?!?! :wink:

I agree that it is an excellent article.

There is, however, only a stigma in associating unicycling with the circus if we consider it to be so.

She also added this to the end of the article:

Re: Re: MUni article in the BicyclePaper

I see the link to the original article is dead. The Archive pfd is here, article on page 3.

Ya, but it still doesn’t mention unicyclist.com. :slight_smile:

Juggling “pins”?

If this gets posted to rec.juggling, there’ll be letters.

I could have sworn I told ya’ll that they printed our comments a long time ago but now I can’t find the thread that I did so in. Maybe I dreamt it. :slight_smile:
