Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Dawn of MUni

From UniGeezer, "This video was quite a departure from what I usually do.

I made it as a tribute to both “The Dawn of Man” opening segment of the film “2001 a Space Odyssey”, and to Kris Holm and George Peck, for pioneering the sport we all love so much! It starts out in the "1970's", which required lots of props from that era, including finding a unicycle at least 40 years old, in new looking condition! THAT would be a tall order!

So I went on a “scavenger hunt” of sorts, to find all the props from the 1970’s that were needed, including rotary dial phone, polyester disco shirt and pants, shag wig, lava lamp and much more, all of which you will see in the video. I was lucky to find some new looking 70's cars to ride by, while looking like an extra from the Brady Bunch!

There are several references to the film,
(“2001 a Space Odyssey”) including the opening title, and my take on the "Bone to spaceship" scene. For that scene my 70's era unicycle becomes a modern day MUni. This was the most difficult to get right, and took the most time, but I was very happy with the final result.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it! "
