So in the first pic youd start together. In the second ur only with a handful of slow riders. And in the last ur all alone

Have a closer look, that rider is using an e-bike, but still behind the unicycle!!

That's usually how these sportives go for me. I'm usually one of the first to start and finish with the slowpokes at the back. I did one last year that was ridden predominantly by handcyclists, it was the one time I felt I could keep up with the crowd

Found a Cool Route in Washington...

If your travels take you to the Tri-Cities area of Washington and you have your yoo-nee, give the Sacagawea Heritage Trail a go. It's REALLY pretty and you get to cross a couple of giant bridges! I started from--and ended at--the State Park, so it was like 30-odd miles of beautiful, paved path. Even the short road sections are marked, ultra-wide bike paths--they did a really good job setting up this trail. Here are some way-too-big images, including one I snapped near the end of the ride when I spotted some giant wind turbine blades! heh

Wow, those turbine blades are massive. Are they always that big? I've only ever seen them from a distance.

Those blades are relatively small. The biggest turbine blades are now over 100 metres long.

YooNeeNoob,
That is good to know. I've been looking at the nearby Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes that runs mostly across the the panhandle of Idaho. It is 73 miles, an ideal trail for unicycles with a super smooth surface and limited grades no steeper then 2%. I'm considering it to do a century with a little road riding on either end. Much of it is quite remote with limited services and sometimes you may have to wait for local residents to clear the trail.

Theoretically it's possible; it's a "flex line" with an extension as long as the extra height. In reality I'm extreme careful on my dog.

Also I have a knot about 90 CM / 3 ft before the end of the line, so when I feel that passing over my finger, I blindly know I have to go into idling, and know that I can do so safely (as the dog will be on safe distance).
But pretty much all of the time she right next to me, or rather a bit in front.
