Your Uni at work

I forgot to mention

I forgot to mention that this park is near my work place - that can be seen at the last pic…

yup…we used to be located in a friendly older building that was much more comfortable and homey and people-oriented. In this new location everything is automated and hideous–you can’t even control the lights! They go on and off according to the dictates of some invisible hand. The free food is nice, though :wink:
btw: if you’re ever discussing working conditions at a new position with a recruiter and the term “open-space office plan” is heard, RUN LIKE HELL!

one4all, you have some great hobbies. I took up paragliding in 1997 when I moved to the Seattle area. I started hang gliding in 1984. Utah (Salt Lake City) has one of the best inland hang gliding sites in the world. When I moved I had no place to keep a hang glider. I haven’t flown in a few years. Busy raising two young boys. When they get old enough we’ll go flying.
I average about 40 miles a week unicycle commuting. I ride 5 miles to the bus stop then have an hour bus ride to work. After my shift an hour bus ride and 5 mile unicycle ride home. I work night shift. The evening commute is still dark. I’m well lighted. Have a helmet light and strap a 600 lumen small flashlight to my handlebar. I use a helmet and a seat mounted red flashing lights for rear visibility. I use the lights in the day time as well. During the day I turn the head light and flashlight to flashing modes.

Unipilot69 and One4all - I started Hang Gliding in 1979 & Paragliding in 1991. Flying paragliders only these days, but have gained my dual licence so I can fly passengers. Don’t think there are too many unicycling pilots.

Back on topic, as a retired IT Director my only work (other than voluntary) is as a unicyclist - pics are me at work…



These are awesome pics!

Nasher, I think you me and unipilot69 can start a new group - we can call it “Uni-Gliding” :slight_smile:

There was a base jumper who rode a Unicycle while doing that a long time ago

I rode my uni to work for the first time this morning! :slight_smile:

If I’ve got this right, here it is at my desk as an attached image:


Here’s my 26" Muni at work, posing because i just mounted the flatt-boiled saddle.





Here is mine (KH29 with 26" wheel) at work.

Got only positive comments so far.
One colleague asked wether it is a complete vehicle or only part of it.
My boss asked me to show that I can ride on the corridor.


do you have vees on it? or maguras

Just gave in to my poor financial control and stuck a 29" Nimbus muni on the credit card that I’m supposed to be paying off, that’s Saturdays job at work sorted. Will get a pic up!

Inspired by unishark I have put V-brakes onto the KH29-Frame to be able to use a 26" wheel.

There is no horse play at work, So I ride my Uni

Wow, what an amazing view of a Wind Turbines field!

I really like the rim you got there Straightarrow!

Pride of place


My boss from corporate was visiting our Tech Support office. I practice riding my uni while on lunch, and he could see me from his Office. He confronted me later saying that he took a picture of me and sent to his wife saying “These are the freaks that work for me.” I also juggle while on calls with customers, so he is used to me doing weird things at work.

Coultn’t desecrate my uni by snapping a pic of it lying in my cube because my cube is very messy so here is a pic of uni with my other office.

perhaps this pic will be easier to see?
