On May 19th, I'm making a Guinness World Record attempt for the 'fastest 100 miles on a unicycle.'

This is to raise funds for the first children's circus of Afghanistan, with whom I'll be working this summer.

Please check out the website and help me spread the word!

Hey, this is surely not possible, please can this sort of speed be obtained? I can only manage four to six revolutions at best which is probably less than 3-4 miles an hour ... before crashing to the ground. What the heck am I doing wrong? Hey...All the best for the record.... I'm in ore! :)

No, he hasn't yet. He went for the hour record though but something broke on his unicycle and he couldn't complete the ride.

Hey Fellow Unis,

Thanks for all your support in this project!!

I had a go at the "most miles on a unicycle in one hour" in April, 2006, to honor a friend with Lou Gherig's disease on his birthday. Headed out to Fargo, ND, for the flatlands, to make the attempt. Turns out my friend's birthday is also a pretty windy day, 15 mph. I gave it a go anyhow, with sidewagon and chilly weather, but a bolt snapped 40 minutes into the ride and we didn't have a replacement on hand (argh! a bike mechanic's nightmare).

Anyhow, in answer to questions -- I'm having another go in late August (sometime between Aug 27 and 31, in Fargo again, to allow some leeway for the right wind speeds).

The big point of all this is to raise more money to help a kids circus in Afghanistan. So far, we're up to $13,000 in contributions; I'm going to keep gunning until we get to $20k. For more, see:

www.Unicycle4Kids.org

I got back from 6 weeks in Kabul in mid-July... the kids are doing rail riding over there, and a couple are working on wheel walking. The work is spreading the unicycle contageon, and in places where children need ways to build self-confidence and have a few laughs in the process.

Keep rollin. And thanks for reading.

Zach

aww that sucks about the bolt. how perfect for it to snap right during that ride and not during a practice ride. anyway, good luck with your 100 mile record, tell me how it goes! you're probably using a 36" coker, right?
