SINZ Unitour 2007: Highlights

Ok, it’s only taken me five years, but here is the animoto slideshow of our South Island, New Zealand Unicycle Tour in 2007.

If there is one Unitour video you must watch, this is it.  You’ll see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, as our group of unicyclists ride from Dunedin, through the historic Central Otago Rail Trail, up the West Coast to Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers, and climb back over Arthurs Pass to finish in Christchurch.

Now, we normally favour pedal power, and self balancing gyroscopes kinda spoils the challenge, but this is uber cool.

It’s not a plug for Focus Designs…but we’d love to hear from any unicyclist who has tried one of these:

Thierry Bouché, mountain-unicycling in Tahiti 1990

Thierry Bouché, one of the pioneers of our sport, riding up Mt Aorai in Tahiti over 20yrs ago. It’s amazing how far our sport has come in such a short time.
