And here's something completely different: brake coasting down Fargo Street.

World Unicycling Calendar 2018 is ready

The World Unicycling Calendar 2018 is ready, and available for anyone to download for free.

Sorry that it took longer than usual. The calendar is created in Excel and I had a big problem this year to convert to print-quality pdf. Finally I solved it.

Thanks all for the amazing contributions. I had a hard time again to choose the twelve pictures. Below is an impression of the final product on my wall. Also the 12 that made the final selection, and the 16 that were on my shortlist but just didn't make it.

The calendar is available as a free download, for anyone interested. Send me your email address through PM or to klaas.bil (at) unicyclist (dot) com, and I will send you a personal download link. It consists of a single pdf file, to be printed by yourself. I recommend glossy photo paper. It is optimised for the international standard A4 paper size, so Americans may have to fiddle somewhat with dimensions. Everything is in English now, including the month and weekday names that previously were in Dutch. The only remaining exotic touch, if you will, is that The Netherlands's Kings' Day on the 27th of April is marked as a holiday.
Please: no redistribution, no commercial use.

Looks amazing, as usual! So many great pictures to choose from, but I'm still kind of bummed I didn't make it even into the selects. I take that as a challenge to myself for 2018!

So... was there supposed to be a link in that previous post?

John, he gives us options, pm or email, choose one. I followed his directions and received my download link in an email within a few minutes.

John, some of your pictures were on my longlist, if that helps

Indeed, I'd like to keep track where my calendar ends up. It's a thrill to know that it hangs on office and home walls throughout the world.

You will have to make your own calendar with just your own pictures. It will be like looking in the mirror.

With so many nice pics, maybe we can start to make several variants of the 2019 calendar (Muni calendar, freestyle calendar, trial/street calendar, group rides calendar...)

Well, maybe "we" or "you" could. But I intend to keep making the World Unicycling Calendar.

I was not planning on stealing anyone's thunder especially with the great work you are doing every year to make THE calendar :P

I volunteer to help make variants focusing on one specific discipline out of the shortlist you gathered (I will start with the offroad edition for personal use ).

Let me know if you accept elves to assist you

@Siddhartha, lol I also started out with the calendar for personal (i.e. my personal) use, in 2011. A few years later, I started distributing to other people, and the numbers are still growing each year. For the 2018 edition, about 70 copies have been downloaded, and counting.

I recognise that the sport of unicycling has many subdisciplines and not everyone will be interested in all of them. In this forum, the emphasis is somewhat on offroad riding while others such as freestyle and street riders are largely elsewhere, e.g. on facebook. Indeed, most of the pictures from here are muni or xc. I feel however, that a broad selection of pictures is most appealing, so that's what I'll keep aiming for.

And thank you for suggesting yourself as an elf, but I can manage on my own. Oh well, with all the great contributors of pictures of course!
That said, feel free to make a personal calender with whatever theme you prefer!
