the 2012 NYC Unicycle Festival, September 2,3,4

who is going? New York City!!!

Be aware that this is a three day festival with three separate venues. We had over 300 unicyclist last year at Governors Island and between 100 and 150 at our club meeting the following day. I expect a much larger turn out this year.

the 2012 NYC Unicycle Festival, which will take place on Saturday, September 3 on Governors Island. The NYC UniFest is produced by the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus and is now in its second year (more info at http://nycunifest.com).

I wish I could go.

Hey, is that a picture of Gene Pool, the can man on the event site's homepage? If that's the same guy, he's been around for a while. I have an old poster from Transportation Alternatives that has him riding a unicycle naked (from a taseful angle).

Stick it in a garbage bag (or similar) and then it's just a piece of luggage.

I really wish I'd known about this sooner. It's going to be impossible to find a babysitter for that weekend, and if I take my daughter, I will not be able to ride.

Now to decide if it's worth the 7 hour round trip drive to go watch other people ride around and play. Hmm.

If you're not traveling during rush hour you shouldn't have any trouble. I've never had anyone say boo on either NJ Transit or the NYC subway.

For that matter I've seen bicycles on the subway during rush hour and while people get testy about it, they mostly just put up with it.
