I am preparing for some long-distance unicycling, which will ultimately involve some touring across Europe. I have a 36" Coker, but I am wondering about a few adaptations to make it work better for very long distances (ie., 800 km over a few days). The specific things that come to mind – I have seen some people rig water bottles underneath the handlebars, but is that something that is custom-made, or is there something on the market for that? Has anyone figured out a good way to mount bags on the unicycle? A while back, I read the book “One wheel, many spokes,” but as I recall, he had a support car going with him, which I will not have.
Up to now, I have done mostly 1-day rides, and either carried everything I needed in a backpack or had someone meet me along the way with supplies. I do a lot of camping, so I have some lightweight camping gear to bring along with me. I know that I can likely arrange to stay in hostels easily in Europe, but I like the idea of travelling with everything I need. I really appreciate if you can help point me in the right direction!
The first multi-day trip that I am planning will be from Aachen, Germany, to London, England, via Dunkirk, France. I have not determined the dates when I will make that ride (depends on work schedule), but will try to post that later on.
