Unicycle Zone

In case you missed the Unicycle Zone at the Modesto Family Cycling

42 unicyclists and 30 plus friends/family members

unicyclists from Orange County, the Bay Area, Roseville, Santa Cruz, and


a group photo

great prize bag (earned if you demonstrated you can ride)-bag included a

T-shirt, water bottle, bike safety light, key holder, flashlight, and an
assortment of other great stuff!

popular ongoing activities: unicycle basketball, obstacle courses, and
sharing ideas (Kevin Seaman had a combination air/gel seat he had
constructed on his 36" Coker unicycle! Nathan Hoover brought his specially
designed mountain unicycle!)

demonstrations included unicycle basketball by Bruce Clifton and Dale
Clifton, giraffe unicyclists (impressive-I think about 8-all in
formation), the Sam Vaughn Elementary Unicycling Team, Jeremy Clifton with
an individual demonstration, John Foss on a B.C. wheel (a wheel with just
pedals sticking out of the axel-no crank arms), and all unicyclists on the
street at the same time doing their thing!

performance by John Foss-the Uni-Cyclone, riding a tiny unicycle, a 46"
wheel unicycle, a giraffe unicycle, and a wide assortment of other bikes

and wheels. Amazing!

A big “thank you” to…

Barbara Denlis (and the City of Modesto) for including the unicycling
element to the festival and providing a tent, sign, prizes, publicity,
cones, and other important things.

Rich, owner of World of Wheels on Standiford Avenue, for all his help and
giving “Unipsycho” unicyclists 10% off on the purchase of a unicycle.

Chris Barnes and Becky Clifton for working at the Unipsycho Tent

David Barnes for providing the portable basketball hoop

Everyone who performed (that includes everyone)!

All the parents, family members, and friends that carved out time from
their busy schedules to accompany their unicyclists.
