Shin scraped and tired


I can barely lift my head from the pillow to introduce you to John – nine unicycles later the man’s ready for action. Katherine and I stopped with Tim and Ben for a lazy Sunday chinwag with John this morning at Daisy Hill.

Did you know they make unicycles with gears?

Katherine is a great ride companion – patient and helpful, but it’s random fellow travelers that help make a day a bit special. I’ve still a lot to learn before I can be properly hooked, but I have to say, mountain biking is something else. I’m still trying to put my finger on it.

Doing it on one wheel seems totally unfathomable. Power to you John.


I won’t give it too much hype, because Ms Meare’s timely generosity will speak for itself, but I am looking forward to answering the hard questions…

I’m sure that Anna doesn’t unicycle, but I’m pretty sure that she’d power the hell out of it.
