25 gouden Loekie Somebody watching TV called me: this commercial that I appeared in -over a decade ago- was #12 in the 25 most talked commercials in national history. It already was 2nd in the awards for best commercials (it almost won a "Gouden Loekie Award"). Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments

Gruss 2 YouTube now has this, this and this movie of parts of the 2009 show of Cirque Gruss in France that has the Troupe de Wuqiao in it. It exposes that the ultimate wheel riders don't really jump that high as the obstacles. And this picture shows that the rider does not really jump over the 7 people, but simply behind them. Nevertheless the act still contains insane skills that deserve respect. Today they are in Saint Tropes. Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   1 comment

Pampanga Besides being team-captain of the Taiwanese Unicycle Team, Steve Dressler brought in 1998 the first Philipino unicyclist to UNICON. Now a decade later there seems to be an alive unicycle community.

Smile for Google - part 1 unicycle on Google Street View On my way to a unicycle-workshop I ended at a wrong railwaystation. So I grabbed my cracked GPS enabled iPhone G3's Google Maps application, and used it as navigator to travel by unicycle to my destination as an alternative. At one point I looked up from the screen (left)... and encountered a Street View car at the crossing! So I drove a little bit up to ensure I would be captured (....if the camera's were running, that is).

This is where it happened, and where I hopefully will appear soon. Unfortunely not the best place to be spotted as unicyclist: the hospital.

I was hoping I might be the 1st unicyclist on Street View... but somebody in Australia New Zealand probably is did a doubtful claim.

Here is a picture of the Spanish camera-car fleet that's now in Holland, which shot each other elsewhere in The Netherlands. Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   1 comment

gruss Today I was in France and visited Cirque Arlette Gruss. Reading the president of the republic condoleances of when Arlette Gruss died... probably the national circus of France.
Anyway the Wuqiao Troupe is there!
They now jump from ultimate to ultimate OVER 7(!) people (I counted that myself with no doubt).
And they ride an ultimate on stilts! Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments

kids adult blue white black Richard Wertz and Hugh Garner said: unicycling offers both physical and emotional benefits for kids and adults, blue collar, white collar, black and white Unicycling is the best workout you can get on one wheel further: It requires concentration, so daily problems get pushed out of the way while you ride, and it provides a great physical workout, which helps me sleep at night. and refer to it as: the great equalizer. and say: Unicycling brings together a pretty diverse group and: We have kids and adults, blue-collar riders and white-collar riders, black unicyclists and white unicyclists. and: It is a fantastic workout and: It will build stamina, balance and coordination and strengthen your muscles and teach your legs to turn smoothly and with control.
