To all Tour de France purists everywhere, this is not a joke! It’s called Ride the Lobster and when I first came across this article I thought it was a joke for sure. I guess this is our version of the Holy Grail of cycling.
It is a international unicycle race held in Nova Scotia Canada. The event will take place Monday, June 16 to Friday, June 20 2008. There will be 25 teams entered, consisting of 3 riders per team. It will take only the most dedicated unicyclist’s from all over the world to finish this event. The winning team, of this grueling 5 day 800 km. event, will go home with a rock lobster of a prize totaling $10,000.00 (Cdn).
I thought that only Shriners and guys in the circus drove these contraptions. So for all you die hard unicyclist’s out there, forgive my ignorance!
So if your team thinks it’s got what it takes to cycle with the big boys/girls, hats off to ya.
Keep on Jammin'(or cycling?)
