My first ride over the Easter bank holidays was in Edinburgh. While I was here I was able to meet up with Jason Auld, a fellow sponsored rider. We rode at Usher Hall, Bristo Square (University), the Dynamic Earth and the Scottish Parliament Buildings. I also rode at Calton Hill which looks over Edinburgh City, Leith (The Firth of Forth) and Arthurs Seat.

In Edinburgh I got 2 standing Ovations. One for hopping down 30 steps, and the tourists watched and filmed this, and the 2nd on the Royal Mile. Also a street entertainer said he would give me £5 if I rode my unicycle around his stage for his audience. Funny thing was he told me I didn't have to go to school anymore and he would see me in 10yrs performing.

Jason, Iain & I all enjoyed our trials day but it had a cost, I broke one of my pedals, Jason Broke his frame and Iain buckled his wheel. Oh well the joys of Unicycling. Best and most fun part was playing in the pond.

My other rides were at the seaside. First stop was in Scarborough but I really didn’t get to ride much, as everywhere was very busy. Next stops were Robin Hoods bay and Whitby, on the way home from Scarborough.

At Robins Hoods bay there was plenty of benches and other obstacles to do some trials riding on. Then when I was bored we moved onto Whitby. At Whitby I attempted to hop down the 199 steps, without stopping or failing. Unfortunately I came off twice, and had to stop once for people walking up the steps to the Abbey. I will definitely attempt the steps again later in the year.

By this time I was shattered so we had a walk around Whitby. I did some more riding near the pier, where I landed my 1st 360 foot plant which got on video. I was very pleased with this. Finally a slow ride back to the car brought loads of people to a halt on the quayside as I was doing some tricks on the way.

Also whilst at Scarborough I got my Nickname (Cambo) on the back of my other white UDC top, and got a Cap made up with my local unicycle club (JUST ) logo on and Cambo.
