I made the paper again -this time in my own home town. The picture is not on the web link, but was taken by John Childs at CalMuni 2003 during the Downieville ride. Thanks again, JC -if you haven’t been already, you are now a published photographer.
The cool thing is, I’ve been on the phone with people who read the write-up. A guy (62yrs old now) invited me out over Thanksgiving to see his collection of unicycles -he used to have a club in this same area. A 12yr old kid who lives a few miles away has selected KH as his hero, and is waiting for his muni to arrive any day. He will be riding with me and my “club” soon.
I am, again, enjoying my five seconds of fame.
Well Jerry, looks as though you’re making quite a name for yourself:) You’re going to have to make a trip back to S.A. sometime soon. Our numbers are growing, we did a Muni ride a few weeks ago with a total of 6 riders from right here in town!!!
that is really cool. ive never been in the paper, but i was questioned on the radio about it once when i called in. I told them i ride unicycles, and they asked if they played the song i wanted, if they could have a ride on the handlebars. Kind of a dumb joke but whatever.
My brother and his family live in Houston. Next time I visit, we will have to go for a ride. He lives along a levy. On the other side there is a velodrome at one of the many public parks. Not sure of the name of the park. I just remember the all the great running/riding trail in the area. Someday, Atlanta will have those great riding locations as well.
