The ride has already broken the Guinness World Record for “Longest Unicycle Trip,” which until April 22, 2014, stood at 9,972 mi/15,955 km.Sponsored in part by Dick’s Last Resort – “The Joint Yer Mama Warned You About!:”

Planning more charity fundraisers or the future – Half of all proceeds will go to those charities. The remainder enables me to plan further charity events and continue my journey!
The trip, which began July 9th, 2013 in Baltimore, MD, has already spanned across North America and Central America, including 11 countries: U.S., Canada, Mexico, Belize, Gutemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panamá, and Colombia – about 14,000 miles so far (22,400 km).

I have returned to the U.S., in an effort to pass through most or all 50 states. I have also begun a program called “Get Out There,” where I will be visiting elementary schools across the nation. I will show the kids the unicycle, talk about the trip, and remind them to get out, get active, and eat healthy. I hope to donate a small starter unicycle to each school I visit, to be incorporated in P.E. curricula.
