Mountain Unicycling

Postby TallGrass » Tue Feb 12, 2013 3:33 am

Hmm, maybe Bill could add a new icon to User Peak Checklists?

Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

For those interested in mountain unicycle stuff, a buddy of mine did this last summer: www.greatdivideride.com

Pretty cool stuff.

I saw what I guessed to be a father / son team riding down Grays 3 years ago. Not sure if that narrows it down to him(?)

Bill - yes, please add a bike icon for 14ers. Those little snowflakes have become so plebeian.

Not to derail the thread, because I think the concept of mountain unicycling is awesome and should be discussed, but I would also like to see a disco ball icon in the checklist for 14ers danced upon. 8)

Yes. Here, here!
Ms. Lynx has a superb suggestion.

That would be perfect! It really captures the essence of 14er dancing. :wink:

Here's the new bike icon. Use it to designate any 14ers for which you've biked at least 25% of the route.

Sorry, you'll have to wait till next winter to get the new "bike-snowflake" icon.

Thanks for posting the video.... Looks like a challenge.

I rode Grays 30 Aug 2009, so maybe that was me? Only three 14ers so far. (Grays, Elbert and Pikes) Seems all the best ones are Wilderness and no wheeled vehicles allowed. :roll:

I would love to ride down Quandary and Huron. Might have to look into getting another one or two done this summer..... Thanks for the nudge.

It might be kind of fun to add a few other icons to the peaks checklists, kind of like the mass group of smilies to choose from over there. ----->>>
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

Seriously, anyone know how many of the 14ers have been biked? 5? 10?
Not that my days of endos aren't long gone, just curious.
