Hey there. Snow’s mostly gone… time to ride some trails around Ottawa - Gatineau, Canada. I can’t do hardcore drops or serious rock gardens, but have done ski hills and mixed terrain. Anyone up for it, shoot me a PM.
If you’re on Facebook check out the Ottawa Unicyclist group… saddly there’s only like 2 active members, this including me haha.
It says 48 members.
Edit: What happened to them all?!
Don’t know… maybe they moved. I was out on the South March Highlands mountain bike trails today. I was the only uni. So, maybe we can generate some momentum… there’s at least three of us, so I’m in… even though Jakob F rides waaayyy beyond my level.
Oh, well. And I’m just getting back into the game after injuring my ankle ligaments in non-uni activity. Spent Saturday uni-ing, slacklining, and frisbeeing around Bate Island.
And this afternoon, driving on Walkley I did a U-turn and pulled over next to a guy riding a 20" he just bought and learned to ride this week. His gf seemed surprised to see another unicyclist drop in out of the blue! I told him about this group and expect he’ll sign up. We got another one!
How about a ride next sunday? Gatineau park ou South March is good. I’ve ridden south march only a few times but I’d be willing to see what it looks like again!
I’ll check out the Ottawa Unicyclist Group on FB and see what I can do to make it look like we actually exist haha.
Haha! BurnerDave you did indeed find me on the side of the road and my girlfriend was incredibly shocked. She was convinced I was a lone unicycling mad man before and now she just thinks it’s mass hysteria… Can’t blame me for drinking the unicycle kool-aid.
I’m working on my street cycling and once I build up some endurance I’ll come ride with you guys and hopefully learn some new stuff - I’m hoping we can organize something regular - it’s still such a blast for me seeing the look of shock and awe as I zip past the muggles.
Woo-Hoo! Welcome, Mike! I loved that ‘wtf’ expression on her face when I opened the trunk with the 2 unis in it!
I can’t do a group ride until I get back in shape, so in the meantime I just mix slacklining and do uni laps over at Bate Island. Lucky me, I’m retired now so I can go during the weekdays when there’s lotsa elbow room!
