If you are offended by unicycles, or don't think we're serious athletes, then read no further...

I, along with my teammates Roland and Vince, comprising a team called "Personal Rollercoaster", competed in a first-of-its-kind unicycle race called the “Ride The Lobster” from June 16 through June 20, 2008. It was a relay race in five stages, running from one end of Nova Scotia to the other, a distance of over 500 miles. There were 35 teams from all over the world, including New Zealand, Singapore, Korea, all over Europe, and more. We hoped we could make it into the top 10.

This write-up is extremely long, because this event was a week-long epic. Please don’t worry if you don’t want to read it. You can go here: http://www.ridethelobster.com/race/rankings.php for the rankings to cut through all my storytelling. I promise I won’t take any offense.

For those of you with reading specs on, too much time to kill, here’s the whole enchilada:

Thanks for the great write-up! It brought back memories of my father digging out his unicycle from the garage and amazing me and my friends. I remember thinking that my dad was a very boring, un-cool dad before that, and my friends thought the same. We were shocked when he got up on the unicycle and rode it around, and and down curbs, backward and forward.

My hat is off to you and your teammates for completing the Ride The Lobster! I tried many times to figure my dad's unicycle, but I could never do more than 30 feet or so. Congrats to you guys! Well done!
