McMillin ==> Buckley Trail

The last leg of a converted railroad grade from McMillin to Buckley has been completed, and the trail is GORGEOUS! It follows a meandering river, occasionally crossing it via a series of rebuilt bridges that offer some fine views. The 30-mile trip makes a perfect distance for a winter afternoon's unicycle workout. The path has been thoughfully designed, with rest stops, trailside espresso shack, and several calendar-worthy hamlets in case you feel like exploring / lunching. If you're in the Seattle area, give it a try.

Some snaps:

This thread is just making me insanely jealous, I've not been on one wheel in WEEKS

Bloody English weather!

This weekend's the one. Unless it snows knee-deep and freezes over, I'm getting out and doing a good long ride

I sympathize with your lack, and I understand it as I had two 6 weeks off periods closes one to each other.
The weather in France is not so good either, but I recently found the opportunity to ride 3 times (including today) on the G36 with the NR Lite tire that I love!

So a bit more to make you a bit more jealous

It's not really the rain I'm worried about, it's the half-arsed snow that leaves a layer of sheet ice across the road

Thanks everyone for your pics to get me in the mood for riding! The weekend's weather isn't looking good but I still reckon I'll go for a spin round the canal paths or something, they shouldn't be too slippy!

Snow it good. You may get more UPD's but the landing is softer.

Snow is fun
Unfortunately not much of it recently here. But the mud was nicely frozen this morning, so I couldn't resist taking an offroad "shortcut" on my commute.

Riding With The New Dog

This was my first spin with Skye, our Husky/Lab mix we adopted in October. She might be a natural! The 29" seemed to work really well too; she likes to run.

Here's a photo from one of my rides this past weekend. Temps in the 70s! (But no rain, unfortunately.)
Question: I put the colored spoke covers on for a holiday parade a couple weeks back, and haven't removed them. I'm of two opinions -- I like the added visibility (less chance of being run over while road riding), but worry about adding to the dreaded "circus/clown" appearance. Any opinions? Thx!

You write in your subtext "I'm a unicyclist. I make my own reality." Doesn't that mean "I don't care what other people think. I love riding a unicycle"? I think the yellow looks cool and... better safe than sorry.

LanceB, I don't think they look too clownish. Do they clack around when you ride? I would say keep 'em if they don't.

These are from our snowboarding trip. I had fun riding up to the lodge for lunch and my favorite reaction was in the parking lot, someone nonchalantly turned and said, "Why not?"
