Ouch!!! That's gotta hurt.

I never pass Bikes. Maybe I need to add a Blue Shift to my wish list.
A geared uni... wow!

Hope you heal quickly. --chirokid--

I consider that little accident to be just your warm up for the
Vancouver Island Muni Weekend. I expect to see more displays of
artistic falling and bloodshed from you this weekend. There is an
elevated skinny somewhere on the island with your name all over it.

You write that as if I have some common sense. I worked all day after
patching myself up and then passed the third bike on the way home.

John Childs enjoys seeing me fall and I am sorry he missed that one.
He'll see plenty on Vancouver Island. I think I'll get him on Blue Shift
and goad him on to pass some bikes himself. He usually responds well to
peer pressure.

I also love passing bikes when on one wheel. I passed a few bike
tourists in Norway and occasionally pass them commuting to work too.

If you like this activity, I recommend you heal up and come down to
California for the Mt Diablo Challenge in October. This is the best
bike-passing event I know of. The course is 10.8 miles, almost all
uphill, but starts with a descent, so all the unicycles basically start
at the back of the pack. Then for the entire ride, you are passing
bikes. Last year there were 741 bikes and 9 unicyclists who completed
the course, and the first unicycle (Gary Kanuch on a Coker) came in
339th place! How's that for bike-passing?!

Surf on over to http://www.mtdiablochallenge.com/ and check it out.
Sunday Oct 5, 2003 is the date!
