I hinted about it in the 2005 PNW Events thread , here is the official thread:
There will be a significant unicycle presence at Redmond Derby Days! Derby Days is a day long celebration including parade, carnival rides, uni and bike demo’s, and bands. The main event is an afternoon bicycle criterium. Redmond is also the location of the Marymoore Velodrome, site of Pete’s Purple Phase world record ride, and calls itself the bicycling capitol of the NorthWest. We’d like it to be the unicycle capitol of the NorthWest for at least a day.
The Unicycle portion is organized by the Uniques Unicycle Club. Panther Pride will be joining in; we would love to have all unicyclers join in.
Here’s the plan, the afternoon times my be adjusted:
Saturday, July 9, 2005
10:00 Grand Parade, staging at 9:00, over by 11:30.
1:00 ½ hour unicycle show/demonstration.
1:50: One lap Big Wheel (Coker, Big Wheel, 29er) race on Criterium Route. This will take place right before the Bike races get underway. We need all you local big wheel riders to make this a spectacle!
2:30: Extreme unicycling/trials demo headed up by Sabin and some other local guys . (Throughout the afternoon there will also be several BMX demo’s.)
We’d love to have you, if you’d like to ride in the parade, perform in the show, or race send me a PM or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . For non-Uniques we will require a release/waiver form be signed.
More details to follow as the schedule gets tightend up.
Hope to hear from you!
