Night Muni

Little rosebury

Muni is fun... and lack of sun adds a whole new edge to it.  The result is lots of laughter.

On Monday evening a hardy bunch of riders from JUST went for a ride up on the North Yorkshire moors for a Muni ride in the dark.

Night riding

Even though it was a relatively clear night, it was way too dark to ride without lights when in the woods, even on the moor tops it was a challenge to work out what was a hole and what was a stone.  To say nothing of working what was soft mud and what was sold ground.  So lots of UPD's

JUST 24 Hour Unicycle Endurance Event

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 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.

Cameron Peacock, Dan Kent and Elliott Bateman were in Stockton for a day's riding to get some photos and to do some filming which lead to a lot of random and painful times. Falling of unis, landing new stuff and unicycle maintenance! Thanks to Jessica Dunn for doing photography.
