Sorry guys, don't think I'm going to be able to make it this year! Went to the orthopedist a couple days ago and he wants me in my boot another six weeks! Well he did say initially it would be 2-3 months minimum and he's right! Only good news is that I am healing just fine it's just that the fracture was in an area that is very slow to mend itself. Typical! So that puts me through Halloween when I go back for another follow-up. While I could be good to go that weekend before my follow-up (i.e. the MUniFest weekend) I just don't want to risk doing any MUni damage to myself. I've got to think about my long term situation here. As it is, when I do start back, it's going to take a while to get back to my old form.

While I can't do MUni, I can road ride. So since I had a great 50 mile road ride this past weekend I'm now making plans to ride the Silver Comet - Chief Ladiga Trail sometime very soon for my first uni-century! Wish me luck!

So have fun and rock it out! Perhaps I'll see you guys on the trails before next year. No reason we can't have a quarterly MUni Meetup at some neutral locations. You guys would love Oak Mountain, AL and/or Raccoon Mountain, TN.

All right for a beginner?

I am new to the forums and Unicycling but loving it. I am not sure if I will be welcome but would love to attend. I have only been riding for the last 3 weeks but can ride for a couple of miles at a time with no issues. Most of my riding is on road / commuting on my poor little Sun 24”.

I would love to be able to ride with others and join the group.

Thanks

Davey

Hey Davey, it's not all super pro riders, lots of folks just come out to ride with others, so you'll meet all levels of riders and there will all types of riding available. Just show up, you're bound to be stoked, not often that such a large group of unicyclists get together, as a new rider you shoudl show up for sure!

And you can try out all the other riders unis/munis which is a real treat if you never ridden a guni, giraffe, or 36er

Car Pooling or best way to get down ?

Hi Ben / Everyone coming to the Muni fest

I am still trying to decide what the best way of making it down from philly will be. Is anyone driving down or want a ride from DC. Or should i just fly and then drive from Charlotte.

I have a pretty roomy car if others want to share the ride down

Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Davey

PS Ben would love to try the 36'r if it still there and you never know you may be one uni lighter on the way home. (Want a 36'r and was looking to buy in the spring)

Sorry not going to make it

Sorry ben and co was really looking forward to riding but think that i broke a couple of ribs last saturday and sleeping on a bed is hard enough so on the group and riding Muni is not a good plan.

So hope to catch you all another time.

Bummer! Did it happen riding?

I broke one skiing last year, wasn't too bad, though it hurts like #^&*%^@#!

I was back riding in a couple weeks, so hopefully you'll heal fast too.

cannot make it to munifest

I have a chest cold I haven't been able to shake since Sep 9 (despite several rounds of antibiotics and other meds) so I won't be able to make it to munifest. I thought it would be gone by now. I'll be sure to make it next year.

I was planning to come over for Saturday riding only, so no meals or camping, didn't pre-register, so I just went to the website tonight and boy did I get some sticker shock

Might be selling the 36er on-line after all

Ben- hate hear that. I was hoping to get lots of one on one gear advice. Either way, I'm still on for riding 11/10 or 11/11 in Chattanooga.
