One Wheel, Two Continents
22,000+ miles from Baltimore, through the U.S., Central America, and South America.
Special thanks to Kris Holm Unicycles and Dick’s Last Resort
Will be raising money for Sy’s Fund, Greenpeace, and International Child Art Foundation.
I will also be creating artworks along the way and exhibiting them. Check out the art blog for this: Uncharted: an Art Charity. Half of the proceeds from sold artwork will also go to the charities.
Trip will begin July 1. To find out what lead up to this crazy idea, click unicycling.

These are pictures drawn by the kids at the Dreaming Zebra Foundation, which gives underprivileged kids an essential education in the arts. They were one of the charities to which I donated from the fundraiser of my December ride to St. Louis.
I did a ride from Baltimore to Boston from May 5th to 10th. It was called “500 Miles, 5 Days, 1 Wheel” but ended up being 420 miles of nonstop hills in 6 days. Though, to be fair to myself, 3 of those days were only half days. I got 2 pretty sizable rides from people, but only because of time constraints. But I did arrive in Boston just in time for a small event for Sy’s Fund, a charity which supports young adults with cancer pursue their creative passions. I raised over $1000 dollars, half of which went to this charity. The other half went to my fund for my big trip to South America starting July 1st.
This is how I like returning home, especially when I see that it’s raining out! Boltbus with free wifi – awesome. I got in to Boston safely last night, and I’m already on the way out. Thanks to everyone who supported me on or during the ride! I raised $1000 dollars, but there’s still time to donate! click the picture to donate now
Unfortunately, I probably won’t be able to finish my ride. I need to get into Boston by 530pm, but unfortunately have about 60 miles, I’m exhausted and lost. Know your limits! Click the picture to donate – the charity ride is still a ride, even if it isn’t finished on time! thanks!
I stopped following my directions. I’m just following my gut now! Or Route 1, whatever you call it.
Over $650 raised!! Click on the picture to donate! Thanks!
Heyy, fuggettaboddit!! New yoorhk, baby..
I got off to an extremely late start. I took the train out to the starting point (outside Baltimore city), but of course it was out of service at halfway. I also got the first tire puncture in months, but thanks to the good graces of Ed and Kay, owners of the Whistle Stop Bike Shop on the NCR Trail, I was on my way – and with a generous donation from them! Thank you! – Mile 62, in York, PA.
