No publicity is bad publicity(?)

Well, we had mountain unicycling in the Weekly World News. Now it’s turned up on
a bicycle catalog. Geoff Faraghan received this dealer catalog the other day and
was surprised to see two mountain unicyclists (Scot Cooper and myself) on the
cover. But if you read the headline, and date (April 1,
2001), and then notice that that there are only 32 pages in the catalog, you
realize the message is that mountain unicycling is not real. Oh well. At
least we have serious expressions in the picture.

Still, I love “Here it comes! The next big thing!” Because this is exactly what
went through my mind in 1997 when I first saw George Peck’s Rough Terrain
Unicycling video, and decided to learn how to do it.

The LBS showed me the same picture today. At least it will get people thinking
that either somebody is really good with PhotoShop, or unicycles don’t belong in
the circus anymore.

What’s the George Peck video like? Is it available? I enjoyed the Atlantic
monthly story on him.
