no, i have not set a world record (of course not). but i realized that we, collectively could. this forum is probably the largest assimilation of unicyclists in the world, and if we organized a simultaneous unicycle ride, it could be the a world record, the largest simultaneous unicycle ride in the world.
so, i’m thinking tomorrow at 4 pm (EST)? to give time for everybody to get word of it. someone should also translate this into german for the deutches einradforum. we’d all have to go out and ride for at least like 20-30 min to make up for any small discrepencies (clock innacuracies, ect)
tell me if this time isnt good so we can work out a good time for everyone.
if this does happen i’ll contact guinness so we can be in the book.
ps, go here for what time 4 pm est is locally to you: here
set the first “location” to “usa-connecticut-hartford”
well, it was just a time to begin with. if we move the date back to the 22nd, (a saturday) and the time to noon here, most people will be able to make it. in europe itll be around 6pm, and on the west coast itll be 9am, but in australia, unfortunately, itll be around 1am. but most people could make it.
If we all do drops at the same time, do you think people sleeping in Istanbul will feel it?
Anyway, I think we had over 400 people riding at Unicon X in China. And we were all in the same place, Tiananmen Square! I don’t know if you could generate anything like that through this forum. Even if you did, there’s no way to prove it happened without a lot of messy recordkeeping and affidavits for each location where somebody rode. In other words, not something you’re going to want to present to the Guinness people.
We might have had more people riding in the entry parades at Unicons III or XII (Japan) as well, though they might not have all been riding at the same time. Those would be great records to beat!
