Unicycle.com / Nimbus is pleased to announce Casey Pappalardo to the Unicycle.com Team of Sponsored Riders! Casey Pappalardo - Trials/Street Division

CaseyPappalardo

 

My name is Casey Pappalardo. When I was 14, I learned to ride a unicycle my mother bought me at a gag shop in rural Vermont. It wasn’t long before I started taking my unicycle skills off road.  There were a few trails in my area that I basically lived on every day after school. When I moved out of Jay and into Saint Johnsbury, I lost the trails I loved so much.  I very quickly discovered that the urban terrain was just as fun as tearing down trails.  I became addicted to challenging myself with new tricks and bigger stunts. I’ve trained hard to master as many styles of unicycling as I can such as Street, Trials, Muni, Flatland, Big Wheel Street and BC wheel.  At 19 years old I’m lucky to have gotten into the sport as early as I did, I hope to still be riding when I’m 70.  Even then I’ll be shreddin the gnar like a boss!

Unicycle.com/Nimbus is pleased to announce 2 new Sponsored Riders to the Unicycle.com Team! Liz Wilson - Female Mountain Unicycle Division

 

LizWilson

 

 

My name is Liz Wilson
I'm 51 years young, have worn many hats for work and in life but am happiest when wearing a helmet. Unicycling started as a young girl, providing many smiles and enjoyment. On July 4, 2013 I grabbed a mountain unicycle to see if I could ride. It immediately reminded me of the fun part of life. MUni has returned the smiles and laughter of youth.
To meet other unicyclists I started attending races. I've participated in several Endurance races, XC races and local events for fun. Totally looking forward to NAUCC and UNICON 17, my first unicycling events. Hope to meet you all there :)
Unicycling is a fantastic sport and gives us balance in life.

Richard Tharrett - Freestyle Division

 

RichardT

 

 My name is Richard Tharrett, age 13 and I am a freestyle unicyclist. I live in Macomb Michigan with my parents and sister. I got my first unicycle for christmas in 2010 and taught myself how to ride in my basement. I am currently a level 6 USA unicyclist and ready to test for level 7. My goal is to achieve level 10. I am also a member of the (RTUC) Redford Township Unicycle club in Michigan. There's not a day that passes when I have not rode my unicycle. I plan to participate at NAUCC annually and in the future Unicon. I love the sport of unicycling and hope to continue unicycling for the rest of my life. I not only practice freestyle but I also love

Muni, Racing, Long-distance, and a little mix of the rest of styles of unicycling. HAPPY UNICYCLING !

UNICYCLE.COM AT THE TAIPEI BIKE SHOW IN TAIWAN 2014 – PART 3 We traveled from the mountains to Taipei via taxi to a high speed train to another taxi to the hotel.  The Taipei Bike Show starts at 9:00 every morning, after a 1 hour bus ride to get to the convention center.  We walk around all day, seeing as many booths as possible, attending meetings with our manufacturers and making appointments with new manufacturers.  It is a long day ending at 6PM.  Then it is time for dinner, more business talk and ideas of what we have seen that day.  Then we get up and do it again the next day!  There is so much to see that your brain gets overloaded. But this trip is where we get to really see new ideas and discuss new unicycle ideas.  Who knows what we will have next!

UNICYCLE.COM IN THE MOUNTAINS OF TAIWAN 2014 – PART 2 We headed up to the mountains just west of Taichung for a couple days of sightseeing and getting ready for the Taiwan Bike Show.  We had meetings with the franchises, set up our agenda for the Bike show, and even hiked twice.  The weather was cold , rainy and very misty most of the time but it was still a beautiful place.
