It may appear that not a lot is going on since our last post was 2 months ago.
On the contrary, we've been busy.
Summer is the time to get outside and this one is no exception. We've been regularly attending #unicyclesareathing on Friday nights at Southside Riverfront Park in Pittsburgh (when it hasn't been pouring rain!) Attendance there has been solid with well over 2 dozen people a night (sometimes we see as many as 40) showing up to give unicycling a try for the first time, or just to practice beginning skills.
We've also been to both Open Streets in Pittsburgh. That's ALWAYS a fun time- especially since the last event broke attendance records with over 45,000 people! While we don't get everyone in attendance to try a uni, we do stay busy getting new people in the saddle the entire time. We don't keep count, but 40+ people a day is a low estimate.
In addition, several of us attended The North American Unicycling Convention and Championships (NAUCC) in Livonia, MI. Again, we proved that the Butler Wobble and Pittsburgh region have some strong riders with some 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place overall finishes in Cyclocross, XC Muni, Criterium, 10k, and Marathon (yes, that's 26.2 mi).
And lastly (for now) we headed to Dirt Rag's Dirt Fest in WV for some uni fun. We had a great muni group ride with a couple of new to us faces and then had a try a uni booth where we got some folks to not give up their bikes, but to see what the buzz is all about.
More Friday nights with THICK Bikes and #UnicyclesAreAThing, Open Streets July 28th, more beginner friendly rides, and more group rides. That should get us through summer.
We hope you'll join us and ride a uni. It's super low risk, a great workout, and fun!
