Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that The Uninam Unitour, a 500km unicycle tour starting in Hanoi and Finishing in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam kicks off on Monday. Keep an eye out on our Tour Blog:

Each rider also has their own blog (just click on their profiles)

I'm just on the way to Vietnam now via Bangkok

To all the Uninam riders....see you soon!

We just arrived in Hoi An today after a 70km ride over a big hill and then along the coast. The ride is going great so far. Don't forget to leave messages on our tour blog...the riders are checking the website regularly.

Also, each rider has their own blog on the site. Click on their profiles and follow each rider during the tour.

We're just about to set off from Quang Nhai today, after riding along the coast. The rides have been great so far, but very hot! We spent most of yesterday being chased by kids everywhere it we went

Don't forget to leave us a message on the blogs.

Just a quick note to say that we officially finished the tour today. Everybody had a fantastic time and there were no major injuries (just a broken toe, sprained shoulder and some skin left behind). We're in Ho Chi Minh City now, just looking around. Final updates will be available shortly!

Don't forget to leave us a message on the blogs!

Thanks to Jason from Grasshopper Adventures, our awesome support team, and every rider that made the tour what it was!

All the best,

Ken

p/s We have already decided on the next Unitour....keep and eye out for it.

pp/s Followed by the Jungle Muni Festival at a Thailand Resort.....

Congratulations on finishing safely, and on having had such a great experience. And thank you for setting up and maintaining such a great website - that must have been challenging at times from the Vietnamese rural areas!

I've been following the blog haphazardly. It looks like a fantastic adventure to participate in such a tour (not to mention it must be a fantastic effort to organise one!!). A thought: throughout the blogs, the pictures and the posts in this thread, those kids chasing you popped up, but it wasn't clear whether you liked or disliked that. Maybe that was obvious to yourselves but not to me as a reader.

I'm with dude (who in turn is with a sock ). Some day I'll participate in such a ride, looks like too much fun to pass.

The kids were fun to see. Many loved to give high fives as you ride by, but some would try to grab your hand. A few kids through things at us -- one threw sand on me, and another threw a rock at someone else. Other than that, it was pretty cool.
