It's rare to be photoed. These are from the Collingwood, Ontario, Canada harbour overlooking Georgian Bay. The weather has been unbelievably warm for March, feeling a lot like June. Made for a fun day to ride around on the shale. It's a lot like riding over shallow steps with most of the edges ranging from 1 to 2 inches.

I haven't posted for awhile. I have a new job as a summer camp director that has been keeping me busy. I went up to the camp yesterday and took a bit of time to ride around before leaving.

Saturday was a very misty day, so off I went on the 26er for a ride in the fog. It warmed up and cleared a bit, making a great day out!

Birthday ride...

Yesterday I celebrated my 57th birthday and nearly 1 year unicycle aniversary.

Covered 15 miles on the Chehalis-Western Trail starting in Lacey, WA, USA heading south to the 14 mile marker and back. My previous long ride was 8 miles. The unicycle is a Torker LX 24. I'm still recovering... A larger wheel is in my future.

The photo with the unicycle inside the graffiti laden sign frame is at the intersection of the Chehalis-Western and Olympia-Woodland trail in Lacey. I took that at the end of the ride. A homeless guy offered to share his beer. I declined. He sat down beneath the sign and watched as I took 2 minutes to get my final free-mount to travel the 1/4 mile back to the car. (I think the frame used to contain a trail map at one time.)

Lots of friendly encouragement along the trail!

The dates on the photos all say the 20th, they should read 2012/03/25.
I'll try to get some more interesting pics for my next post!

Congratulations Rower99, it sounds like you had a great adventure on your unicycle.

I agree that a larger wheel would be nice for this type of riding.

Wow! How long did it take you? That is an impressive distance on a 24. Last week I did my longest ride on my 29er at 11 miles took me 2 hrs, your endeavor was probably much harder than mine and I was totaled after my ride (felt like I'd been riding a cactus all day).

Good job!

Nothing motivates a bigger wheel than a long ride on a small wheel.
