Hey there, thanks for taking the time to come to this site and read about our charity ride. If you do make a donation, I can't tell you how much it is appreciated! Even if you can't donate, you can help the cause by sharing this site with your network of friends :)
Currently, I'm a manager at TGiFriday's Mall of Georgia. If you are ever in our area, come see us, we have a great crew of happy people!
I am 45, and I have two amazing boys: Austin is 18, and Jake is 15. They are with their mom the majority of the time in Minnesota.
My older brother Dennis (who is the Fire Chief in Lake Havasu City, AZ), got me started riding unicycles when I was twelve, and although I have been on hiatus a few times, I never stopped riding. For those of you who have never ridden or tried to ride a unicycle, I highly recommend it! It helps you to develop a perfect center of balance, which then carries over to almost any other activity you do. It is excellent exercise, and more fun than anything else I have ever done. When you "master" it, you feel like you are floating as you ride down the road. On my 36" road unicycle I have reached speeds of 20 miles an hour flying down local hills. There is even a special internally geared hub from Schlumpf Innovations available that lets you shift gears while riding (I don't have one because it costs about $1,500). With that special hub speeds of up to 30 mph are possible.
My 36er has handlebars, a cycle computer, and a hydraulic disc brake from http://www.mountainuni.com/ . Mountainuni donated the cranks and disc brake rotor in honor of this fundraising ride.
If you'd like to reach me to ask any questions, or to donate without using PayPal, just give me a call at 678-615-0330, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks again!
