MUni meet in the Netherlands, 1 October

Hi all,

Since the Dutch-language unicyclist forum on www.eenwielersite.net has
died some time ago, I’m posting this here. I’m mostly aiming at Dutch
readers, as I don’t expect any people from abroad to come over for
just one afternoon of MUni.

Anyways, next weekend will see a (loosely) organised MUni meet at one
of the most interesting locations in Holland.

More info (in Dutch) and some pictures on:

Looking forward to it! Any idea of who’s going to come too? (Would love to see a few trialriders there, so we can maybe get together for a trialride sometime).

Hello Netherlands,

I think it was a lot of work to build that Mountain :slight_smile:
I must smile while thinking about the meanining of MUNI and the Netherlands and this one 300 Meter high Mountain I know about :slight_smile:
But back to normal, the place looks very nice and I think there are many good places to drive. Maybe you should be also present in the German part of this Forum, there are some good riders in NRW and this is not far away from the Netherlands.
Maybe you will find there some guys to make some nice Downhill race :slight_smile:
I would also like to do but I first had to train myself a lot. I could ride my 24" and I could Hop a little bit but it will need some month before i would be able to do some real Trials.

Maybe you should also open a Netherlands Forum again or ask Gilby if there is a chance to open a Dutch thread like our German Thread.

We know of about 10 - 12 people coming, mostly from the region. Still
counting though.

Yes. It was a former rubbish dump now covered with fertile soil and
landscaped into this nice thing.

It’s only one afternoon so I don’t expect people to come from too far.
And it’s the first time we’re organising a thing like this. But feel
free to post it if you want.

Personally I like it as it is, I have no time to keep up with yet
another forum. I never participated in the Dutch forum, only made a
few announcements there.

I was there a while ago!

Realize Transavia is flying cheaper than train fares to Rotterdam Airport, which is only few miles away.
Same for EasyJet fromout the UK; the train-fare from AMS to Berkel & Roderijs might be more costly than the plane-ticket.
And next year the HSL line will connect France riders easily.
For sure -if this becomes an annual event- it has international potential.
Especially since besides being reachable, the site looks excellent!

Unfortunely I just heared I have to do the opening of the cultural season in a theater in Leeuwarden that day.
Shame, cause I had all my reporter-equipment ready to do some coverage.

Let’s first see how it goes. We have 12 - 14 confirmed attendants
right now, mostly from the region. For such an event to have wider
appeal, I think it should be a full day.

And here I am, thinking you didn’t do MUni. I invited about 30 people
directly, but excluded you for that reason. Sorry man, next time
you’ll be on the list!

That same address is now home to some pictures (captioned in Dutch)
and a little video of the event.
