I just rode a unicycle 2,754 miles from Canada to Mexico. AMA
This past summer I rode the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route on my unicycle. The route is 2,754 miles long and primarily follows rough dirt roads as it winds its way along the Continental Divide, the spine of the Rockies. The route took me 89 days to complete (66 days of riding). I carried everything I needed on my back or on the unicycle, stopping to resupply my food every 2 to 4 days.
I chose to ride by unicycle both for the personal challenge, and to help draw attention to a charity I was fundraising for. Though I rode for a charity, the trip itself was funded out of my personal pocket. I did receive some sponsorships with gear and equipment, including sponsoring myself through my tent making business.
I finished riding on September 19th, and returned home less than two weeks ago. Readjustment into society and life on two feet has not been an issue, yet. I almost wish there would be more culture shock and am sad to find the trip fading into the past so quickly.
I chronicled the trip on my blog: http://www.greatdivideride.com/journal
Edit: trying to fix link Edit: I'm off to a meeting soon and then checking out the First Friday exhibits around town here (I've been looking forward to them the whole trip). I'll get back to answering questions tonight or tomorrow. Happy to see so much interest!
