We just started planning all the workshops for the upcoming UNICON, and we need your help and ideas.
What kind of workshops would you like to see at UNICON, and (very important) who do you think would be able to lead these workshops?
Maybe you want to run a workshop yourself or maybe you know someone who would be perfect for a specific workshop?
We have put the workshops into 3 categories:
Unicycle games/competitions (sumo, best trick, etc)
Unicycle rides (Muni, distance, street tours etc)
Teaching unicycling (Schlumpf, japanese, etc)
2: Talking about unicycling:
Disc golf tournament
We look forward to hear from you and to see you all at UNICON!
2: Talking about unicycling:
I think that something about health… Everiday we have more unicyclists and PRO unicyclists… Will be good a help in this way i think… Or something about techincal info… New technologies… (Maybe some developer from Koxx or other industrie can teach us )
And i’m trying here in Brazil to find a sponsor to go to UNICON
My father can give me the Tickets (airplane)… But i will need money to the charges, hotel (camping or schools), food and other stuff!
I think it would be interesting to have a workshop on doing self supported unicycle tours (rides that last at least 2 days/1 night). How to pack a light backpack, what tools to bring, what to expect, how to train, what sleeping gear to bring, etc.
I am no expert yet, but I have a few rides under my belt…and I hope to test out a few different set ups for weekend adventures in order to train for a few adventure rides I have in mind.
I could possibly do the workshop (if I make it to unicon), but there could be other riders that are probably more experienced with this sort of thing.
We had a fun disc golf tournament last unicon and it was loads of fun. I helped organized it and would do it again. Does anyone know if there is a disc golf course nearby? Otherwise it might not work out…
Another “unofficial” one is a beersketball workshop/championship. We’ve done something like this the last two unicons and it seems to be a hit! I’d for sure help organize this one!
And I don’t know if there are any good muni trails nearby but it’d be great to have some fun muni rides.
Description: Beautiful long, diverse and scenic - with small lakes, trees and a hill in a well kept park. The fairways range from open to semi-wooded. Challenges on every hole. Easy to navigate. 3 tees per hole.
I’m happy to do a Unicycle Tour workshop like we had at last Unicon. I’ll bring my laptop and we can show some footage. I wonder if there are any projectors we could use? I’ll talk about the next Unitour as well.
Check out http://www.unicon14.dk/gb/workshops/workshop-descriptions/ to see which workshops we have planned (but not scheduled yet) so far.
Only workshops with leaders are shown, so if you think a workshop is missing, it might be because we need a leader.
Feel free to suggest workshops and leaders. The more help we get from you the better!
Some of the workshops only have information in danish and some only in english. We hope to get everything translated soon.
Every October there is a 104km offroad race north of Copenhagen. It’s all arranged by the owner of Øbro cykler in Hillerød. Maybe we could get some details/help from him? It links two forrests, Store Dyrehave and Gribskov. I know most of the area and could potentially lead this.
You will might notice that some workshops are missing. We haven’t been able to find leaders for all the workshops that we wanted.
Instead we will make it possible for people to plan and announce “spontaneous workshops” during unicon. Spontaneous workshops can be everything from long distance to trial for beginners or hand ww races. -whatever you think is missing.
We are not really happy about the lack of daily rides (muni, distance and street/trial) in the workshop program, but we will get some information about different bike and muni paths in the copenhagen area, and we will try to find some good spots for street, flat and trial in copenhagen. All this information will be available at unicon, and hopefully YOU will arrange some tours and invite rest of unicon:)
