Unicycling gets the nod in Reader's Digest!

The current issue of Reader’s Digest, May 2006, has the headline “America’s 100 Best” on the cover. In the top fifty, at #45, is “best balancing act”.

It reads:
“Who says two wheels are better than one? Hop on a sleek unicycle and shed calories while building core muscles and poise. Average time to learn to ride is 10-15 hours, say the experts at unicycle.com, an online retailer based in Marietta, Georgia. Top speed on this popular wheel? About 10 mph. Beginners will enjoy the sturdy Torker Unistar CX 16-inch Special Edition (torkerusa.com: $85). And don’t forget the helmet.”

This is accompanied by a nice color photo of the green & black unicycle. Very nice mainstream press indeed!

Yup. Gotta love that mainstream press. I always smile when I see or hear of unicycling getting positive exposure.

But, Readers Digest? I didn’t even know they were still around. My Mom used to subscribe to that when I was a kid and I’m about a hundred now. Haven’t even seen it in the doctors office lately.

Today, Readers Digest. Tomorrow, National Geographic?:wink:
