2018 Tour De Staten Island

On April 22, 2018 three  of our New York Unicycle Club members took part in this years Tour de Staten Island. David Bagley, Abdullah Wright (on the right) and myself.  David Bagley's daughter, Megan, also participated by riding her bicycle for the entire 50 mile route. Us unicyclists took the 35 mile ride route that winds it way though various neighborhood mainly in the northwest and southwest portions of the borough. The ride has quite a few challenging hills. This years tour was a rough ride for Abdullah and I. Abdullah had rode about 18 miles the day before and I had not had the opportunity to do any training rides due to illness. In any event with my thighs were screaming in protest, I was able to finish. It was the second consecutive year of the club's participation in the tour. It is a great ride with thousands of cyclists participating in both the 35 mile and 50 mile routes. The 50 mile route takes you out to a circuitous eastern tour of the island.  I was  really fun ride with free beer at the end to motivate you to finish.  I look forward to riding this same tour next year with proper training in preparation.
