if you want to see the video from that moment http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lD6hoCushes and the fail attempts starts from ~1.19 sec I believe
I recognize you, your the guy who was learning to ride at the NYC Uni Fest, then was riding at the NYC uni club meeting ~4 weeks later, and now your hitting Muni! You are unstoppable! Go Man!

That was really fun to watch. After I was doing off road for a couple of months, I put a dirt tire on my 20". I tried it on a trail and UPD'd a lot. I didn't find the 20" very forgiving of irregularities. You did really well for being so new. If you were on a 24" you probably would not have fallen in some of those places. It looked like fun.

I like that Geoff - it's not blurred it's artistic soft focus

It was such a nice and warm day today that it would be awful to waste it. So I took a nice muni ride:

Unisiklet, that was awesome, your doing great. Muni on a 20" can be tough especially with all those leaves because they hide roots and rocks. Nice job, keep up the great riding!

Here's a picture from me at Sunday's All Hallows Mountain Bike Race in Schenectady (Halloween race for you non-usa folks).

I won both the men's and woman's unicycle division...ok, I was the only one. Fun 2 laps of single track, cool that I did both laps in same time (41min) must have paced well.

A practical question: how much of a hazard was the dress? (I'm wondering about the feasability of a knee-length coat.)

I will send you a PM with details on the unicycling club (Høje Gladsaxe Unicykel Klub).

It might look dead compared with the summer but there were plenty people walking, jogging and roller skating to make the ride interesting.

I actually grew up on Amager but this is my first visit to the new beach: http://www.amager-strand.dk/ServiceMenu/English. The path is very smooth and ideal for unicycling but I don't think I would take a ride in the summer. (However, I might combine a visit to my parents during the winter with some unicycling... )
