Thursday 19 July was the date… after a couple of months’ of (hardly!) training, I was let loose like a wild stallion on a unicycle up the 800m climb to the summit. My race number was 12, which represented the maximum age that one should really be allowed to unicycle… not for grown men really.
Managed the climb in 6 minutes 12 seconds, two minutes faster than my training times, so I was very happy! And the man on the PA even gave Backs & Beyond a plug, for which I am grateful (despite calling us a physiotherapy clinic!).
Next year a tandem perhaps?
