Northeast (USA) uni races this summer.

I’m trying to sort out my riding plan for the rest of the summer and figured I’d share the options here to see if others want to join. These are all the races I know of that me or other unicyclists are going to.

If there are others, please add them.

If you want to attend one please speak up to encourage the snowball effect for more riders.

I think you meant August 1 for Dark Horse 40.

Here are a couple of b*ke events in Maryland that I am considering entering on my uni:

August 8 at Schaeffer Farms in Germantown, MD
Cranky Monkey MTB http://www.ex2adventures.com/tcm-schedule.php
9 to 28 miles depending on category entered.

October 9 Seagull Century in Salisbury, Maryland


100 mile or 100 km options on mostly flat terrain.
I did the 100 mile course the last two years.
Last year there were over 8000 bikes registered for the two options.

Hey Roland,
I’m in for your race!
I have the week off prior so I could come down a couple of days before the race and help set up if you would like.
Thanks for posting my ride, I never think to put it on here. One correction, the ride is one big 110k loop with rest stations along the way. The organizers are letting me start early so there will be food at the end.
Maybe you should put an invite on your Facebook for your muni race, you might get more accurate count of people who will make it.
Thanks, Mark

Hey Roland,
I’m psyched to do your race!
I am off the week prior so if you need help let me know.
Thanks for posting my ride, I never think to put stuff on here. One correction, it is one, 110k loop. Hope riders will join me!
Talk soon, Mark
