That would be a good name for it, though it was a fleeting thing. It was at the third (California) MUni Weekend, 1998. A guy had spent several hours making small rock towers, and we joined in with freestanding unicycles at the end of our ride.



Dan Heaton is in the picture. Kris Holm was there (his first time riding with other unicyclists!) but he's not in the picture. Yes, we were riding Miyatas and Schwinns with knobby (but skinny) tires, and a few custom jobs. Unicycle.com didn't launch until the following year.

Sedona is beautiful. We passed through there briefly on our way back from the Grand Canyon in 2005, but without unicycles.

John, you are an amazing fount of unicycle history! You should write a book, with all your photos and anecdotal recollections. That would be great. It might not have a huge distribution, but I'd buy one!
