On Sunday 1st september Matthew Moris, one of our sponsored riders, completed his first unicycle century; 101.1 miles in total. It was part of the manchester 100 events organised by bike events.
He felt a bit out of place among so many carbon road bikes. He had a nice and early start at 7:50. It took him a long 9 hours and 40 mins to return to the start point having completed the ride. The route was not the easiest, with the first half having an unforgiving strong headwind along with some lovely hills to get your legs working. There was plenty of encouragement from other riders to help him through the hard first 50 miles. On the return stretch there was a good tail wind to push the cyclists home. Although the organisers had thrown in some decent size hills in the last 15 miles to make sure your legs would ache the next day.
Average moving speed: 14.5mph
Moving time: 7 hours and 2 mins
Total time: 9 hours 40 mins
Total hight climbed: 2091ft
Max speed: 25.0 mph (a new personal record)
The whole ride was tracked using the GPS app strava, while some details are not as accurate as a cycle computer they give a good indication of the ride: http://www.strava.com/activities/79227958
