Posted:A lot of people assume that unicycling originated from clowns; not so, it came from heroes who took the back wheels and handlebars off their giant wheeled penny farthings, and went racing with them.

In this spirit of adventure a group of intrepid unicyclists have just climbed Mt. Snowdon ( the highest mountain in England and Wales) on Munis!

Here's the pic of them at the summit: -

Posted:Judging by the slope of Dave's temperment over the past 3 years, anyone posting in 2009 may have their face smashed into the computer screen, removed, and then smashed again.

If you're going to be snarky, does that mean I have to be welcoming and polite again like I was back in '03?

wink hug


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.
