We are sad to announce the closing of Unicycle.com in New Zealand. Unicycle.com New Zealand has been part of the Unicycle.com family for the last 12 years. We appreciate everything they have contributed to the wonderful sport of unicycling. With changing circumstances with the team, they have decided to close the store.
We would like to thank Steve Pavarno, Peter Bier and Tony Melton for their massive contribution to not only Unicycle.com but also the Unicycle community in New Zealand. They are not disappearing, they will still be seen on the unicycle scene, but will just not be running the unicycle store.
The store will be having a closing down sale and will actually be shutting the doors on the 31st March. So do visit the site for picking up your bargains.
Zero Point Sid is riding across Alaska on his 36er unicycle! He writes:
FAIRBANKS!!! Yup, the Dalton has been unicycled. Yesterday Mimi became the first unicycle to do a complete crossing of Alaska's Haul Road. Today we rolled into Fairbanks after 800km of pedaling in 13 days with 27000 feet of up and 27000 feet of down. There was lots of riding on gravel and loose, slushy mud, snow blowing in our faces, two intimate moments with bears and so much more. Heck, we even rode down Atigun Pass in a whiteout on the edge of control. Exciting! Excruciating! Exhilarating! Exhausting! Thanks for all the support on this page and especially to all the wonderful folks I met on the way. Now, we rest and ice our joints and beer up. Then we get to the easy part: the few 1000km more down the Alaska Highway. Good times!
We love to post about what unicyclists are doing out in the world.

A unicycle. Slow, deliberate, and controlled. Unicycling is not about miles. It's about feeling the rocks and roots. 110% of your attention devoted to what's beneath you. It's always an adventure and always an accomplishment. A unicycle is simple, but unicycling is not. Balance must be earned and falling is a daily occurrence. For me, life is unicycling. A series of challenges. A balancing act. A journey.
Let's go on this journey together, earning every mile and taking only what we need. Let's exist minimally so that we can be free. Let's always have a camera ready and never pass up a photo opportunity. Let's stop to talk to locals. And let's put away distractions and learn about where we are. My name is Josh Hartman and I am a mountain unicyclist. Follow me as I share my visual story.
