Calgary Online Journal - Jumps, hops and tricks -- all on one wheel!
The Calgary Mountain Unipsychos is a Mountain Unicycling Club which has been started by some active Calgary riders to help generate more interest in the extreme sport of mountain unicycling in and around the Calgary, Alberta area.
We have various levels of riders from beginners to advanced and enjoy various kinds of terrain from freestyle street riding to trials and extreme offroad in the Rockies so everyone is welcome!
What is the club up to lately?
Well this varies through the year. There are few riders lately active (besides me, 'Mike') in offroading at an extreme level, but there are certainly many riders getting out on one wheel for some trails and others into urban assaults and trials riding. We've not been planning group rides exept I do ride with mountain bikers every week in the mountains or fish creek.
How to I get out to ride with people?
Well, you can contact Mike, go through our forums or check out some of these other resources to find other riders as well.
Screaming Skulls Club - Trials and Urban riders mostly meet regularly download.
Also facebook has a group called, Uni Freaks with many calgary unicyclist on it. Facebook also has a sports page for Mountain Unicycling with more riders around the world.
Also, there is a huge forum site at http://www.unicyclist.com/ if you have questions about riding and want many more opinions and activity.
So, that is the news
