Meeting Austin – 4/5/2018

I was riding one of my favorite unicycle tracks from my house getting some exercise and enjoying the weather.

I heard somebody yelling at me (which is normal) but it was persistent. I looked over to see a young man running on the other side of a major street carrying a unicycle.

I stopped and yelled I would wait for the stoplight to change so he could come safely across the street and we could chat. It isn’t often you meet another unicyclist out and about on the streets!

Once on the same side of the street, I met Austin. He’s a high school student that started riding a few months ago. He is already more skilled than me, showing off what he can do. He was amazed by my 36″ wheel as he was on a 24″ wheel. We talked for about 45 minutes. I even demonstrated on his unicycle how to rotate the tire to get the most ware out of it. Good think I keep an air pump in my bag!

Eventually we needed to part ways, but its always great to meet a fellow rider!
