I guess nobody can accuse me of posting too often in 2006. We did pick up a new regularly-attending member and have hopes for a few more in the new year. This winter has been warm and wet so far; we'll be out again if the weather is warm (45 degrees F. or better) and dry. Just posted two new photos of a ride through Sharon Woods last fall.

As my schedule will take me out of town this week, look for extra-light attendance at meetings today and next Sunday. I really want to reconstitute this group; if you are in the area and want to ride anyway, please try to come out to Winton Woods on a Sunday afternoon. One of these Sundays, we'll get together and fall back into a rhythm of regular meetings.

Finally got my daughter on a unicycle this week at COSI Columbus. Hopefully, that will prove to be a good introduction to the sport. The unicycle rides a cable strung well above the ground floor of the museum; it's a fun ride despite the 250 lb. counterweight hanging below the uni.
I posted pictures of the high-wire unicycle and a few from my ride earlier this summer through Cade's Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The loop road around Cade's Cove is closed to motor traffic twice a week (at least during the summer months) and is perfect for an easy uni ride. Definitely worth a look if you find yourself near Townsend, TN.

I can hardly believe it's been so long since I've posted anything here. I suppose being out of town for two months didn't help any. Since I've been back, it's been awfully hot and I'm afraid I haven't made it to Winton Woods on more than one Sunday. Hopefully, things will start cooling off and we'll be able to enjoy the park in the fall.
I just posted more than a few pictures from NAUCC 2005 to the picture page. It was nice to have a digital camera this year--I was a little behind the times in 2001. Sorry to have caught the only other regular Cincinnati Unicyclist on the track after having DQed in the wheel walk race--I didn't get a good exposure of Dirk on any other shot. I should have been on the track myself this year, but I wimped out.

Special ride planned for Sunday, October 24 at Miami Whitewater Forest. Never been before, but I hear that the bike trail should make for a nice long ride. Hopefully there will be one main entrance and we will find each other easily enough. This ride replaces the standard weekly ride. Same time, different place.
Update: I found a useful map of the park in my copy of Walking Cincinnati. Looks like the parking lot for the Bird museum is close to trailheads for both the bike trail and the Oakleaf Trail, so I suggest we try to meet there at 3:00. Directions: Take I-74 to Dry Fork Rd., turn right on Dry Fork Rd., and right again on West Rd. to park entrance.

Fair warning...I'll be out of town this weekend and next so attendance at the meetings will be light.

The Cicadas have been gone for a while now, so let's get back out on one wheel this summer. I meant to take some pictures of cicadas I had crushed on my tire at Winton Woods, but I kept forgetting to bring my camera. We surely need some new pictures on this site.
Anyway, I wanted to post fair warning that our small group will be one rider short for the next two weeks as I take my summer vacation to beautiful Buffalo, NY.
