The Great "LUni Buddies Codgers Challenge"
are you in? yes you are!!
Background: The LUni buddies Codgers Challenge was initiated last December at a mtb buddies track building Christmas Bar-b-que. A couple of us were learning to ride unicycles and after a couple of beers the challenge was thrown out there by Steve. At the time it seemed like an insurmountable challenge to complete in only 12 months, but in unicycle time we have found that is a long time and a huge amount of improvement can be achieved.
The Challenge: Is to ride the entire length of the Codgers main track from the top (Tantragee saddle) down to Brook Street on December 31st 2011.
** If you don’t have a MUni, we will supply you with one for the challenge.
The Rules: What are those, but when I think back to December last year, the challenge Steve made was to simply "ride down Codgers". Now bear in mind that "falling off" a unicycle is quite normal when riding off road, well for me anyway, I would suggest that keeping simplicity of the rules will require that we need to ride every section. But if you fall off or stop for any reason that is ok, just continue from where you stopped or head back up the track for a retry on the technical sections. Make sense? I hope so.
Who’s in ?? I know you wanna be …. So far the list I believe is Steve, Marty, Katie, Murray, Daena and Julian. Now bear in mind that if you are just starting to learn to ride a unicycle now, then YOU WILL be able to do this challenge. It is amazing how a unicycle challenge that seems insurmountable now can be within reach next month, and achieved the month after. Just remember, practice, practice practice and you WILL nail it. THERE WILL BE AWESOME PRISES hopefully … or maybe a moro bar or something
That’s all from me for this week, send me an email letting me know you’re in for the Challenge and of course remember, Keep grinning and the pedals spinning Its all about FUN.
