I’ve been unicycling for 4.5 years, after a mid-life crisis caused me to inexplicably purchase a one-wheeler on eBay. As my patient wife says, it combines my two favorite activities, athleticism and exhibitionism. Unicycling quickly became my favorite exercise because riding gives the excellent feeling of flying, there’s always some new trick or technique to learn, and it seldom fails to elicit smiles and conversation from passersby. Every ride I take, whether riding my big road wheel on peaceful farm roads, speeding around town on my guni (geared uni), or bumping through a good trail-ride on my muni (mountain uni), always leaves me with even more love for the sport. Also, I’m directly or indirectly responsible for Roland, Brad and Perry learning to unicycle.
At 46, I’m the old man of the team. I’m a stay-at-home-dad with my 2 kids, Monya (11), and Denali (8), and I run a small business called the Delmar Dog Butler. For further reading, my unicycle writeups are here.
