    • Nicely done MuniSano. Way under 9 hours too, that is really moving right along. Great job showing up prepared and delivering on your goal

        Thanks. Prepared I was. At the end of July of this year, just a couple weeks after finishing the Badwater 135 mile in Death Valley, I sustained a stress fracture to my calcaneous (heel bone) while mountain unicycling in Moab, Utah. So I've been unable to run for the past 3 months. Rather than get out of shape and depressed I decide to unicycle A LOT. I stayed off the trails and other sketchy terrain where I might risk further damage to my heel; this meant a lot of road/paved path riding. So, for better or worse I'm in probably the best unicycling shape of my life right now. So I figured now was the time to attempt a 100 miler on my unicycle! It was great fun, the perfect day (the fall foliage was incredible!), and only had one short "bad patch".

        I'm so happy I chose the Chief Ladiga - Silver Comet Rail Trail for my ride; awesome bike path! There are some good long sections on the Silver Comet side (Georgia) that would be perfect for record attempts. Flat, smooth, traffic free and FAST!

        I'm also very stoked that I got this ride done on my 24" GUni. The trend seems to do centuries on 36ers. With all the riding I've been doing I honestly feel more comfortable on my 24" geared set up than I do on my Coker 36er (even my times over the same courses agree with this). Maybe I just like to spin more? Don't know. I just like the idea of having ONE unicycle to do it all. Swap the tire and I'm offroad; I've done 50 miles of single track on this set up as well; now a 100 miler on pavement! Pretty diverse I'd say!

        However, if I were to do something like this again it would be fun to try to go after the record. I can totally see a well tuned, geared 36er as the way to go. I just can't afford it! Because outside of doing an event like this I'd really have no practical use for a geared 36er.

        Congrats to everybody on this list, I'm very thankful to finally join the ranks.

            Duuuuuuude! Great write-up. I read the whole thing, and now I'm late for work! (It's OK because I'm the owner/operator.)

                  • Sure, here they come. I was just too busy today, since I had to cope with everything I could not do yesterday ...

                    I started 5:48 in the morning with my geared KH36/145mm. The route I choose was a circuit of 2,35km (1.5mi). It is a nice little road through meadows and little forests. There is little traffic – at times cyclists and people with dogs, here and then a car or a tractor. The surface is good, but there is a sharp turn, disrupting the flow and there is a little Hill, which turns over time into a mountain.

                    With this trip I tied a few personal records:
                    - Longest daytrip 230km (143 mi)
                    - Longest time unicycling – 16:10, 13:35 actually cycling
                    - First 100:10:1 (9:35)
                    - Longest distance non-stop - 102km (63mi) all in 2. gear
                    - Longest time non-stop (5:11)

                    Marathon time was 2:05, 100km in 5:04 and 200km in 13:22. Fuel consumption was at about 4,1 l/100km . What else to say? A spoke broke at km 134 (83mi), which prevented me from using the second gear, but at that point in time I was anyway too tired for it. The last third or a bit more I found extremely hard. I had issues sitting and my digestion was complaining. Certainly it was a bit too hot and not a good idea to cycle the first five hours non-stop. It would have been better to stop regularly right from the start. However it started well and I was convinced the little hill would anyway drop me off sometimes. I managed to pass it 43 times. I was still cycling but after 100km I decided to stop it.

                    • Finally got a century ride under my belt in a most untraditional manner. This past Friday and Saturday I competed in the Powderhorn 24 hour race (write up by Max). I rode 95 miles in the actual race, so I did the extra 5 right at the end. It actually took me 23 hours and 42 minutes to finish the 100 miles so it still counts as a century (since it was within 24 hours). My rolling time on the other hand was a bit faster at 6 hours and 48 minutes! That's only 4 minutes off the world record. Of course I had lots of breaks, but the race course also involved stop signs and lights as well as a checkpoint every mile or so that I had to stop at. Definitely not the typical 100 mile ride, but I'm still proud to say I've done a century.

                      • I rode my first 100 miles on 7th July and have added my name to the list. I am 63 years old - could this make me a record holder for the oldest guy to ride the 100?

                              I watched it. Wow you were smart to have the extra 36er! Do you have footage of the bearing failure? what time did you start and finish?

                              • Good stuff monocyclism

                                What were the roads like? (and don't say covered in tarmac).
                                If the last five miles were tough going uphill why didn't you do the ride the other way around? That way you'd have been going downhill at the beginning.
                                Just wondering

                                Do please post a ride report, I like reading those.
