This weekend 60 Unicyclists took part in a 24 hour unicycle endurance event in Middlesbrough. The idea was to ride around the track as many times as possible in 24 hours! People really took to the challenge and they collectively rode 4582Km! The equivalent distance to riding across America!
The winner was Aaron Moran who amazingly rode 301km! David Knowles came second with 245km and Ross Atkins came 3rd with 223km. A special mention to Susan Boe for riding 161km and was the first lady. The youngest rider was nearly 3 years old (Grace Devereux) One of the oldest rider (Richard Jeal) rode an amazing 170km. Cameron Peacock won the under 16's riding an impressive 190km.
They were raising money for St Teresa's hospice for a unicyclist from their club who sadly lost his life to cancer. They have raised over £1000 so far and this figure is growing every day! I think you will all agree that it was a massive accomplishment and well done to everyone who took part. Great to see so many riders in one place. Everyone came together and the atmosphere was incredible.
