This post was inspired in part by talking to my Brother and Sister about their travels, particularly Morocco, and by seeing this article and video get posted the very next day.
There’s some really nice photographs in the article and the video just reminds me what it is I love most about riding. Well worth a read and watch. (Click the photo to read the article)

As I’ve gotten older, the reasons for riding a unicycle have changed. Obviously not the original, most fundamental reason I started riding; for fun, but the reason I continue to ride is kept alive by the constant urge to experience more of the world.
Riding has taken me to so many places I wouldn’t have otherwise visited. It’s opened my eyes to the world. I know there are places I have never heard of that are more beautiful than anywhere I’ve visited before. Unicycling gives me an excuse to visit those places. It’s the vehicle that gets my off up of my lazy arse and embark on these journeys. I don’t think I’d have the courage to do it without the unicycle there.

Here are a just a few places my unicycle has taken me.

The Isle of Skye during a whiteout.

There are so many more places that I want to visit and I can’t imagine doing it without that trusty wheel with me.
