Our next unicycle tour is getting even more exotic. Keep October 2013 free, as we are planning the Uzbekistan Unicycle Tour.
It is a 12 day, 400k, fully supported Unitour, and takes in some ancient cities along the old Silk Road.

I thought I had replied to this thread
Is this a new thread or have I missed something with another thread about the same event, in the last week or so? …just checking
I’m incredibly interested in doing this, as I’ve never been across the ocean before and would also like a reason to start training for touring distances.
I have no idea right now of the aspects of getting involved in something like this - I don’t even have a passport right now. Obviously you wouldn’t handle that part of it, I’d figure it out, but could I go ahead and express a realistic interest in the trip?
Email me through the Adventure Unicyclist website. I’ll put you on the mailing list.
In terms of requirements, you have to get yourself (and unicycle) to Tashkent on the 21 Oct 2013. Once there everything is taken care of- you just have to ride! It’s a supported unitour, so achievable for most unicyclists.
Accomodation, most meals and carting your gear are all provided. There is a support crew and support vehicles- people jump in them if they are struggling, or if they get injured/fall sick. We have regular rest stops where the unicyclists regroup. However, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy it…nobody likes riding in the support bus.
Tour dates are finalised: 21 October 2013 (Day 1) to 1 November 2013 (Day 12)
Registrations for Unistan are now open, and will remain open until 1 June 2013, or when we fill all 20 spots.
For more information, check out the Unistan website:
I would so want to go… But alas I’m still in school -_-
Just a reminder if you are still interested in coming to Unistan. If you haven’t heard from me, it means you are not on the mailing list. Contact me via the Adventure Unicyclist: http://www.adventureunicyclist.com/contact/
I hope to finalise all the riders by the end of May, so please get in touch as soon as possible.
We’re only 6 months away from our most exotic unicycle tour yet. If you’re still thinking about coming, please contact me as soon as you can. We have over 10 riders registered. Here are some of their profiles:
Registrations are open until 1 June. After that any late entries will be dependent on accomodation/logistics, and we ask you to donate $100 to charity as a late fee (it helps us firm up numbers).
It seems that we’re ready to go…
October 20th is coming…
Scary hard funny strong cold steep Unique Uzbekistan tour…
