That’s the big question right now. About a year ago, I spoke briefly with someone who had unicycled across the country and an old flame was ignited. Through my childhood I loved riding my uni! The possibility of touring on one, and even riding the Great Divide on one, had crossed my mind but it had never been more than a fleeting thought and I had no idea that others were actually doing this sort of thing. I was excited to find out that at least two others, Gracie Sorbello and Matt Burney, had actually unicycled the Great Divide Route – it is possible!
Over time the idea of unicycling the GDMBR faded; that is until yesterday when Jennifer Pharr Davis, an old friend and the new AT speed record holder (congrats Jenn!) who’s successfully organized several fundraisers made a recommendation: do something to set this ride apart from other rides. Of course, the first thing to pop into my head was to get rid of one of my wheels! I’ve put a poll up on the Facebook page so please go there and make your vote! And I’d love to see your comments up on the Facebook wall! Maybe you have a suggestion that’s not quite as crazy as getting rid of one of my wheels
