    Greetings!

    This is my 114 mile “mega-century” video. I did this as a "double my age" ride, just filmed 3/10/13.

    And what an incredible journey it was! Aside from a massive tire blowout (my friend's fixie), to having to bob & weave cautiously through a maze of bikers, skateboarders, roller bladers, and people constantly trying to cross the path without looking, it was a fantastic adventure of a lifetime that I will never forget!

    I had to ride the last 10 miles in the dark--and only had my prescription SUNglasses, which I accidentally stepped on and broke while stretching!

    * Watch for my free-mount attempt at mile 85! (I was a bit shocked at what happened!)

    Hope you enjoy!

    Sun block? in March? I'm jealous!

    That's a fantastic ride. Epic on a bike, more so on one wheel.

    Thanks for another great video!

    Terry,

    First, congratulations on an amazing achievement! You've inspired me to do something similar a little later this year; I'm turning 56 next week and I'm going to do a double my age ride in the Outer Banks in May. (Not on a unicycle though.)

    Second, I'm jealous about the beautiful ride out there. I know exactly where you were riding, have visited many times on business, and I'd love to do that some day.

    Keep up the good work, sir!

    That looks amazing!

    Now how about trying to top that in 24 hours at the Silverstone 24 hour Cycling Grand Prix?!

    Take a look at the website - http://www.thesilverstone24.com/

    Wow, you ride more smoothly on one wheel than I do on TWO!
